The newly-redesigned Sonic the Hedgehog made an appearance tonight on late-night talkshow Conan to show off his new look to the host, Conan O’Brien.

It’s always cool — and very rare — to see animation industry issues, like the redesign of a character, become so mainstream that they serve as the source of comedy material. Be forewarned, though, this new Sonic isn’t particularly nice and tells the audience:

You people could have directed your outrage at any number of injustices around the world, but you chose to spend your time and energy complaining about the design of an animated movie character based on a video game from the ’90s.
