Truly Outrageous Jem And The Holograms PSA Will Get You Stoked For The Movie

images-1There is exciting news out today because there will be a Jem and The Holograms movie. If you are of a certain age, you probably remember how truly outrageous and fabulous this show was and how you almost got into fistfights with your friends on the playground over whether you were more of a Jem or a Pizzazz or a Kimber. One of the best part about cartoons from the 80′s is that a lot of the times during commercial breaks they would should these amazing public service announcements so that kids could get their learn on while rocking out to the Holograms. Thanks to you tube, you can enjoy some of the Jem ones from back in the day, which cover everything from not touching down power lines to why you shouldn’t shoplift to not stealing your parents prescription drugs. Everything a kid should know!

The producers of the upcoming movie have asked the public to submit ideas about the project to Tumblr and You Tube using the hashtag #Jemthemovie about what they would like to see. In case anyone was wondering, I feel it is very important to the upcoming film that a scene like this from the original cartoon involving one of the Starlight girls be included:

The producers have also put out an open casting call, asking kids of any age or gender who can sing, dance and act to upload a two-minute video showcasing their talents. By “kid” they mean 44-year-old women who badly wants to play like an aunt or something right?

      OMG, now I miss my Jem lunch box from kindergarten. Nevermind the fact that I had morning kindergarten and no real need for a lunchbox. I made my mom buy it for me anyway. I loved that thermos so hard.

    • Valerie

      Seriously. I can’t even.

      • Alicia Kiner

        I definitely had that lunch box, though I don’t remember actually using it.

      JEM! This is awesome news. Fun fact: my best friend and I agreed to dress up as rock stars for Halloween together in grade 4. My mom and I sewed a sparkly purple dress that matched exactly a dress my Jem doll had, and I sprayed some of my hair pink, the whole shebang. Turned out my friend meant more like punk rockers…she was so embarrassed by me. Oh well. I’m awesome and she sucks, obviously.

      Eve, you just made my day!!

      Before CMJ has a chance to tell the world that I sold her Rockin’ Roadster (with a working AM radio!!), I will confess, seeking absolution from her.

      • Valerie

        Are you CMJ’s mom?? How did I miss that? Your daughter has some serious GIF finding abilities. Nice work on the parenting front! :-)

      • momjones

        I’ve added her GIF finding abilities to the list of things that make me proud of her :-)

      • Robotic Socks

        Maybe you can teach her to UPVOTE her friends!

        >:(

      • CMJ

        If you sell She-Ra’s Crystal Castle you’ll be dead to me.

      • momjones

        Do you have a GIF for this?

        I had one of these with She-Ra and Glimmer and some horses/unicorns that went with it and my parents put it in the effing attic and it MELTED. The heartbreak!

      Wait, was her first announcement on not talking to strangers? Did we then see her loitering to see kids she doesn’t know for her to “help”? I love Jem, but I am suspicious of her stalking children. I feel I should alert the authorities because it is the right thing, and doing the right thing makes me … a superstar!

      Eve, why settle for an aunt? Just please, if a magic genie grants you the role of Jem, demand they tone down the creepy stalking of children in public announcements.

      My sister and I spent an excessive amount of time playing at being characters from the show, including coloring giant ridiculous earrings on paper, cutting them out, and taping them to our ears. I am going to pretend this movie isn’t happening, lest I get my hopes up, before they take a big ol’ dump on my childhood with their modernizations. Then if it’s good I’ll be thrilled, and if they bollocks it, I won’t be surprised.

      I want to know when was it ever legal for a ten year old to pick up prescription drugs.

      I wish Jem was actually randomly patrolling the streets …. There are ALOT of little shits out there who could use advice. Including my own little shits, from time to time. ;-)
