On Tuesday afternoon, Sharon Osbourne posted a hilarious clip using a new social media filter that made her look like one of The Chipmunks.
For those that don’t remember, The Chipmunks are an old cartoon that date back to the 1950s. Others may remember it as Alvin and The Chipmunks. The three adorable singing chipmunks with high-pitched squeaky voices includes Alvin, Simon, and Theodore. Additionally, in 2007, an Alvin and The Chipmunks reboot came out in theaters. Since then, several sequels have come out as part of the long-running franchise.
While there isn’t a new movie or TV show coming out that we know of, there is a new filter on social media that can turn you into one of the furry creatures. With the help of a friend, Sharon Osbourne made sure to test out the hilarious new filter. It not only changes your appearance but makes your voice high-pitched like The Chipmunks as well.
Osbourne and her companion are sitting outside with palm trees in the background. The filter adds two little pig tails to the top of her hair. She’s adorned in a pair of round eye glasses (like Simon) and has the buck teeth to match. The two ladies in the short clip each have altered voices that sound much higher than normal. It makes for a hysterical conversation, albeit a short one.
“Do you want to go lay by the water now?” someone asks Sharon Osbourne.
“Yes, I do,” Osbourne responds.
“Smile,” they said back to her before Sharon amusingly obliges.
Sharon Osbourne Shares Condolences Following the Death of a Family Friend
Over the weekend, things weren’t quite as lighthearted for Sharon Osbourne and her husband Ozzy. They were each mourning the death of rock ‘n roll merchandising legend Dell Furano who they called a “dear friend.”
The 69-year-old merchandiser co-founded Winterland Productions and Epic Rights – a brand management company. Furano worked alongside numerous iconic artists. Just a few of his clients included John Lennon, the Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Led Zeppelin, Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, and many more.
When speaking to Billboard about merchandising, he told the outlet that things have changed over the years. Acts didn’t think it was “cool” and wanted merchandisers to stay out of the way at shows.
“In the ’70s, it was not cool selling merchandise, so we had to be careful,” Furano said. “Groups would say, ‘OK, you can sell, but don’t embarrass us. Stand in a corner.’”
Furano changed the perception surrounding merchandising, which is now a vital part of music and live entertainment. Along the way, he became friends with many of his clients, including Ozzy Osbourne and his wife.
“Deeply saddened by the loss of our dear friend Dell Furano. He was a truly honorable man and will be greatly missed,” Sharon Osbourne tweeted late yesterday. She added an old photo of Ozzy and Furano smiling for the camera together.
