We’d like to thank Will, Adam, Judd, and all the rest at FoD for seeing the humour in John Oates reuniting with his mustache. Here is our little teaser that got released a short while ago, for the show J-Stache:
Yes, that is John Oates as John Oates. Dave Attell is quite the dirty voice of an even dirtier mustache. John may have crafted countless chart topping hits, but his true calling is to star in an animated show were he embraces his former iconic self… for better or worse.
We went with a more retro 80′s cartoon look (read as poorly drawn) with the animation on this one, and purposefully let the director, Jesse Norton, draw most of the animation on this. He grew a handle bar mustache and went on a bender of cheap blended scotch, Clint cigars, elk jerky, and reruns of the 1988 season of Geraldo’s talk show. This was the result.
Check out this recent interview with John talking about the show:
Then when you’re done with that. Listen to him introduce this song. There are some out there that still believe Oates is the Garfunkle to Daryl. Blasphemy! Listen to him introduce!
Then listen to him play.
Then listen to the whole room,
then the world,
then the very fabric of space & time
sing along with him:
