After 24 years, gremlins still wrecking stuff

Don't feed them after midnight. Don't let them get wet. Don't let them out in the sun. Invaluable rules for living with a college roommate. Oh, and 24 years ago, Gremlins taught us they were also the rules for keeping your pet mogwai happy and healthy. There was no mention of an expiration date for gremlins, so I guess we can’t blame Britain’s BT tech-service company for bringing this ’80s icon back for a new TV spot. Maybe this will open the door for more pop-culture comebacks from 1984, like the sand worms from Dune, or Slimer from Ghostbusters, or Indiana Jones! Via Cinematical.
