Nearly twenty years since they were last seen in the Movie Universe, "Gremlins" have struck again in Toobworld!

This time they appear in a BT Business blipvert which debuts May 5th to illustrate the need for great IT services in your business.
The hapless businessman in the ad is portrayed by Peter Jones, who founded the telecommunications firm Phone International Group. But because he's seen working as a drone in a British office instead of in his own company office suite, he's obviously playing a character.

BT has licensed the Gremlins from Warner Brothers and they will be featured in a massive campaign that will range across several different media universes.

But it's nice to know that the world of Billy Peltzer now has an official televersion. The two movies have been mentioned in other shows before, from 'Law & Order' to 'Lost'. But for the most part, the references have been easily splainable. In fact, with 'How I Met Your Mother', Marshall acknowledged their existence with his splainin on the proper way to feed them.
