Universal Studios, Orlando, has recently added a new character to their midst, and it's a little on the strange side... The new recruit, a nudist troll named Guy Diamond joined the troll posse this year, much to the delight and bewilderment of visitors and bloggers. Guy is the only member of the posse of three that refuses to wear clothes, and at the end of his song, farts glitter into the air in celebration. People online are confused about the realities of such a job.
But working as a theme-park character is no laughing matter. Working at Disneyland is especially strenuous, with stories of strict work regulations, overheating and low wages, while at Universal Studios, employment can even be dangerous.
Universal StudiosUniversal Studio plays host to scores of holidayers every year. Showcasing colourful characters from its many franchises and entertaining guests with shows and rides.
Universal Studios sports a number of colourful characters. Characters at Universal Studios range from...
ShrekHere's Shrek and Princess Fiona. I have to say, that Shrek costume doesn't look very manoeuvrable.
MinionsHere's the Minions. Dreamwork's most marketable characters.
Madagascar AnimalsThe animals from the 2005 film, Madagascar - doing a little dance.
The SimpsonsEveryone's favourite satirical TV family, looking jarringly real.
MuppetsThe residents of Sesame Street have made appearances at Universal since the show's conception in 1969.
Jimmy FallonThis has to be the most realistic Jimmy Fallon costume I've ever seen. They really do go above and beyond.
Pretend RockstarsHere's some lovely young men playing dress up as famous rockstars, performing a regular slot at Universal Studios.
And now... drumroll please... Universal has a new recruit... He's gone viral recently, and for good reason.
Introducing Guy DiamondHe's adorable. He's joined the Troll Trio and caps off his little dance by farting glitter into the air.

AngerBut it's not only sweetness and laughs. Some people, like Karen here, are genuinely angry about the crudeness of the character.
