DreamWorks’ Shrek was first released on May 18, 2001.
The song “All Star” by Smash Mouth, heard in the opening credits, was only placed in the film for test audiences until a new song could be found. But test audiences loved it, and the producers kept it in. When the producers decided to keep “All Star” they decided to let the band sing the last song in the movie, “I’m a Believer.” (x)
Tumblr is quiet. Fandoms go about their business like any other day.
Suddely, they hear it.
A slight rumble can be heard from below their feet. Fandoms look to each other in concern.
The ground begins to break. Cracks rip open the floor beneath them. A bright green light shines out and laughter fills the air.
Through the cracks they can hear mumbling of “fuckass” and something about faygo.
It hits them like a brick. Fandoms began to scream and run in every direction as the cracks grow bigger.
HOMESTUCKS CRAWL OUT FROM THE GROUND, GRAY BODY PAINT AND ALL. SCREAMS FILL THE AIR AS THEY COME SEEPING THROUGH THE CRACKS, CLINGING TO THIER FAYGO AND DIRK STRIDER SHADES. THE RELEASE DATE FOR THE FIRST ACT OF HIVESWAP HAS COME.
