Danny DeVito as Pikachu? The Internet Says “Yes”


The internet wants Danny DeVito to be the new voice of annoying, yellow Pokémon icon, Pikachu.

In a petition posted to recently, 40,000 people who need better hobbies showed their support for getting the diminutive actor hired to play Pikachu in Nintendo’s upcoming 3DS game, Detective Pikachu.

Why? No one really knows. But one comment sums it up by saying, “Why would I not want this?”

At that point, Taxi fans from around the world threw their support behind the idea.

Then came the fan-made video by YouTube user Teahollow1 which featured DeVito’s voice and likeness being played over the game’s teaser trailer. And a meme was born.

Though support is strong the movement needs 10,000 more before it can be formally submitted to Nintendo of America for consideration.

So, what are you waiting for? If you’re still trying to catch ’em all, make sure DeVito is in your corner when the game arrives next year.
