The Smurfs in preparation for the opening of their movie rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange on Friday. Dressed up in their best blues, the three popular characters took to the podium above the floor and rang the bell that had started the day’s trading.
While the costumed-characters were in the best of moods, those on the trading floor seemed in a daze due to the debt crisis debate that has made the markets very flexible. In what couldn’t have been a good time to be blue and provide a little entertainment, The Smurfs were overshadowed by the potential crisis budget that has America on edge. While the Smurf characters were noticed, it appeared that the serious order of business prior to the bell ringing took first priority.
The Smurfs seemed to take the not-so-good timing at the stock markets in stride and gave it their best for the moment. The Smurfs stars including the little folks in blue and actors Neil Patrick Harris, Jonathan Winters, Hank Azaria, Jayma Mays, and Sofía Vergara. The storyline centers on their latest adventure of where they find an off-limits grotto along with a blue moon, so a magical portal within the grotto transports them into present-day Central Park in New York and their journey begins.
