The elephant sneezed and fell on his knees…
CUT! Okay, let me see the director RIGHT NOW!
Lamar! I gave you $160 million to make an enchanting live action children’s movie based on that enduring song, “The Animal Fair.” Then I come down here two months into the shoot, and I find this crap?
Relax Boss. It’s all in the song.
Look here at the lyrics, the last line: “The elephant sneezed and fell on his knees, and what became of the monk?” See?
Lamar, the song is talking about a MONKEY, not a Buddhist monk!
A real monkey?
Jeez Boss, I wish we’d known that when there was still time to save that poor stunt guy in the orange outfit.
