We can all breath a collective sigh of relief, because the highly anticipated Pitch Perfect 2 has hit theaters and it was (say it with me, now) aca-awesome! Moreover it was aca-mazing, hil-aca-arious, and any other word I can insert "aca" into. With the return of our favorite Barden Bellas came the introduction of rival a cappella group, Das Sound Machine. In Pitch Perfect 2, the German ensemble is called on to take over the Bellas' tour after Fat Amy's (Rebel Wilson) unfortunate — albeit, epic — wardrobe malfunction during a performance for President Barack Obama's birthday. Although pegged as the villains for the sequel, I don't think I'm alone in admitting that the crew making up Das Sound Machine served up some epic performances that we all want to re-watch ASAP.
Although (spoiler alert) Das Sound Machine invariably loses the World A Cappella Championships to the Bellas (woo hoo!) at the film's conclusion, I doubt that this would be the end of the road for Das Sound Machine. With Pitch Perfect 3 potentially being in the works, would Das Sound Machine make an appearance? I would certainly hope so. Just in case you disagree, I've laid out a few reasons that the aforementioned crew should definitely make a comeback.
The "Heated Mess" Line
When the Bellas first meet the members of Das Sound Machine, some smack talk immediately ensues. Pieter Krämer (Flula Borg) delivers this epic diss: "Your team is like a heated mess. A mess where heat is applied to it, so is now even messier." I need more of these elongated "hot mess" comments in my life, don't you?
Flula Borg Is Amazing
Borg's portrayal of Pieter was amazing and hilarious. Along with his performance, the lead guy in Das Sound Machine is also a very talented DJ, YouTube star, and wonderfully goofy in real life.
Birgitte Hjort Sørenson Is Also Amazing
Sørenson plays Das Sound Machine's female lead, Kommissar. According to Beca (Anna Kendrick), Kommissar's "sweat smells like cinnamon," so what else do you possibly need? Sørenson is a theater vet in real life, enjoys knitting and reading, and made an appearance in Season 5 of Game of Thrones. Yup, we need more of her in our lives.
Those Epic Performances
Of course the Bellas will always be my top contenders, but Das Machine certainly proved themselves to be worthy opponents during their riff offs and World Championship performances. I need to hear more, more, MORE!
They're Going To Want Revenge
We didn't get too see much of Das Sound Machine's reaction after losing to the Bellas, but what we did see at a glimpse were the members looking more than a bit miffed. Obviously they're going to want revenge, along with a slew of riff offs. Bring it!
We Need To Know More Of The Leads' Backstory
With all their sharp-tongued comebacks and tenacity, there just has to be an interesting backstory for Pieter and Kommissar. We got to see Bumper's (Adam DeVine) softer side in the sequel, so who knows what a second appearance from Das Sound Machine's leads could entail.
Love Interest For Chloe?
Due to her fierce dedication to the Bellas, it would make for a seriously interesting plot point if Chloe found herself enamored with a member of Das Sound Machine.
Who Are The Other Members Of Das Sound Machine?
While the leads of Das Sound Machine were given some exposition, we didn't really get to meet the various other members that were working overtime with those highly choreographed performances. This topic most assuredly needs to be explored in Pitch Perfect 3, right?
Kommissar & Pieter Are Big Pitch Perfect Fans IRL
Look at how kind, humble, and charming these two are! They clearly were very excited to come onboard for Pitch Perfect 2, so I'd be willing to wager that they'd be game for another sequel.
Let's keep our fingers, toes, and whatever else crossed in hopes that both Pitch Perfect 3 and a reappearance by Das Sound Machine are in the works!
