It is the distant future, the year 2015. The Chipmunks had broken up for a while, each going away to do his own thing. Alvin did an experimental album with Chip and Dale, Simon formed a band called "Sca-Wirrel," and Theodore became a big time wrestling champion, until he was beaten by Mickey Mouse.
After five months of that, the Chipmunks reformed and did a collaboration album with the Chipettes called "AAAAAAA!" When the album was released, it became a major hit almost immediately. They did an AAAAAAA! world tour, starting with the USA and then going on to other nations. Little did they know, on their way to Japan, they would face a situation where the only rule is to survive.
On the S.S. Guppy, a cruise ship, Alvin, Simon and Theodore were lying outside on the deck, relaxing in the sun.
"Man," said Alvin. "R and R, that's what it's all about, rest and relaxation."
"I'm sure glad we're no longer in that studio," said Simon.
"Yeah," said Theodore. "It's nice to just get away for a while." Suddenly, all three chipmunks heard a voice.
Alvin sprang up and ran. He ran, ran, ran until his legs could no longer run, but somehow, Dave still caught up with him.
"DO YOU KNOW HOW MAD I AM AT YOU?!" yelled Dave.
"I don't wanna know," said Alvin, who immediately slumped over and played dead.
"I'm not mad at you at all!" said Dave.
"Well, you see," said Dave, "thanks to this album, WE'RE RICH AS H**L!!!"
"Aaah, Dave said a cussword," said Theodore.
"Just let go, Theodore," said Simon. He'd never heard Dave swear before either, but at least he wasn't acting like it was a bad thing. Alvin had heard Dave swear a lot, mainly at him.
"Heck yeah!" said Alvin. Suddenly, out of the ship came Brittany and Jeanette.
"Guys," said Jeanette, "we've got a concert in two days. Aren't we gonna rehearse?"
"Yeah," said Brittany, "I don't want to tick off those nice Japanese people. I looked them up on Sickapedia and I couldn't believe that they actually did some of those things Sickapedia says they did."
"Right," said Alvin. "Let's get going!"
