Danny DeVito As The Voice Of Detective Pikachu Is The Only Petition Worth Signing

Most online petitions are pointless, futile exercises in ironic activism. The White House isn’t going to deport Justin Bieber, George Lucas isn’t coming back to direct Star Wars: Episode IX, and sorry, racists, but if Kanye West wants to record a David Bowie tribute album (which he doesn’t), he can.

But there’s one petition I can get behind: Danny DeVito as Detective Pikachu.

There are a number of us that feel as though Danny DeVito would be a prime fit for the voice acting role of the Detective Pikachu. We want to make this happen. (Via Change.org)

“A number of us” = “everyone.”

Frank Reynolds as an electric mouse makes about as much sense as a video game where Pikachu is a hard-boiled crime-solver in a Sherlock Holmes hat, which is to say, it makes all the sense in the world. Pokémon Company developers are hard at work finishing the level in Great Detective Pikachu: The Birth of a New Duo where Pikachu drops out of a couch naked, covered in sweat.
