Check Out Splinter’s Fu Manchu Moustache In New TMNT Commercial

See more Ninja Turtle action and hear Tony Shalhoub voice a rat.

The new commerical for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles shows us a little bit of Splinter, the mutant rat who trains the turtles in the ways of ninjitsu. Being a rat of Asian persuasion he of course sports a Fu Manchu, and it sounds like Tony Shalhoub is doing a sort of Asian voice for the character. Is that kosher? Will people get outraged? I can't even tell with the minefield of racial politics in the 21st century whether an anthropomorphized rat will get anybody's ire up. Nobody tell Suey Park, I guess.
