But what is interesting is that Hefner makes a vocal cameo in Hop, the animated feature from the makers of Despicable Me, which was released last month.
i have not seen the movie, but i have read various reviews.
The Playboy Mansion element of the movie has escaped most reviews i found, with the exception of the Hollywood Reporter and some family-oriented organizations.
And the movie has been out more than a month now.
Hefner’s reach into our society continues to expand. Of course the excuse is that most kids will miss what’s going on in the scene where E.B. — the main character — tries to get into the Playboy Mansion; that element is just to amuse the adults who took their kids to the theater.
But the dialogue apparently does mention the phrase “sexy bunnies” a couple of times and the main character insists that he is, in fact, a “sexy bunny.”
So here we have a pornography magnet and his empire getting referenced in a movie for children where the main character is claiming to be a “sexy bunny.”
