This is how 'Toy Story' should have been made: Instead of a tale about childhood toys trying to find their way home, the film could have been about Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister drinking whisky with Buzz Lightyear and corrupting their owner's mind with pure rock 'n' roll. Apparently, someone out there shares our sentiments, proven by this creation of a Lemmy Mr. Potato Head.
