Big Train trumped by real-life

The Big Train sketch which depicted Hall and Oates as a crime-fighting duo has been trumped by official product: a cartoon which depicts John Oates and, erm, his moustache as a crime-fighting duo.

You heard:

"In a cartoon setting, the mustache has its own personality," Oates says from Aspen, Colo., where he's finishing his latest solo album. "Just as I'm represented as the John Oates of today, the mustache is the John Oates of yesterday. The focus of the music will be on the back catalog, but it's an open-ended situation. There's even talk of the mustache trying to bring new bands into the picture."

Hopes a full reunion depend on John Oates' mullet completing its stint on Celebrity Rehab next year.
