Surprised during the London premiere of James Cameron's "Avatar", Queen Mudder, Lynton, Lowton and other London Spoof residents attending the red carpet event, were shocked to see major animated characters in the film literally based on Spoof avatars.
Though the main characters in the film appeared to be original, bit parts were filled by Spoof avatars with associated personalities and appeared throughout the epic drama. A local Southwestern Restaurant called Jalapeno's was tended by a man who looked surprisingly line J-Man, carrying a teddy bear by the throat. Signaling expert and Navy man called "Code" looked amazingly like Morse, and military chaplain nicknamed "JB" resembled a rotund, bearded Buddha character.
Other similarities to Spoof avatars included a military sergeant known as "Duncan" who turned from man to green monster, a slightly unstable intelligence office known as "Skoob" who celebrated a birthday in the film, and a playful and confident femme fatal only known as Ms. Bitters.
Lowton and other Spoof point leaders had discussed legal action for the possible copyright infringement, or the potential for a percentage share in the film's gross profits. After sitting through the movie, taking a SWAG at potential ticket sales and calculating potential profits, the benefits were only measured in pennies and pence. The Spoof leadership thought it best just to take the publicity and leave well enough alone.
The painfully confusing animated feature is set for general release for the holidays.
