Burger King Wants Your Friends To Hate You

I know we’ve been afraid of The King for a few years now, but I’ve officially become convinced that Burger King is pure evil.

Just yesterday, BK announced a brand new Facebook application entitled WHOPPER SACRIFICE.

What’s the gimmick?  Here goes…

You install “Whopper Sacrifice”, and upon clicking it, you get a list of your Facebook friends.  For every 10 friends you highlight, and choose to delete, you get a coupon for a free Whopper.

Here’s the catch!  Your friend, who you “sacrificed”, gets a message indicating that you feel that they are less important to you than a Whopper.

Thanks BK and Facebook!  I can only imagine the legion of scorned exes and fairweather friends which are making burger lovers’ life a living hell today.

Billy Mays…REMIXED

Alright internet, I hear you loud and clear. 

You’re loving on Vince, the bizarrely laid back pitchman behind Shamwow and the Slap Chop.

But me, I remember the pitchman that let us all fall back in love with TV ads…Billy Mays.

With his jet black hair, his 3-pack-a-day voice, and constant yelling…he made you want these amazing products EVERY TIME.

And now, he’s gettin’ gangsta. Check check it by clicking play above.

GHOSTSPY: A Look Into Ghostbusters 3?

Chalk this up to “viral marketing”…

Word is spreading fast around the internet about a website that hints at being an inside look into the production and filming of GHOSTBUSTERS 3.

Bit of an issue with that, though.

While word came out earlier this year that Ghostbusters 3 was greenlit and heading into scripting, there have been no announcements about anything further.

So what is this site?  Like I said, most likely, viral marketing…

Maybe it’s for the Ghostbusters game. Maybe it’s for the 25th Anniversary Blu-Ray coming out this June.  Maybe it will eventually be for Ghostbusters 3.

All I can say is…click the link, look at the footage (still on YouTube…how odd), and choose for yourself.

Say what you will about Michael Bay’s Transformers, the fact is, the flick made a metric shit-ton of cash, and was enjoyed by audiences worldwide.

So, of course, 2 years later, we’re now looking at a sequel, the intriguingly titled TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN.  And today, we get the first look at it’s poster.

That’s it up above, and those eyes? Internerd rumor sez that they belong to the new Decpticon Jetfire.  Is he the fallen?  Guess we’ll find out when TF2 hits theaters complete with Skippy LaBeef in the main role in June.

WATCHMENGATE Continues: A Producers Take.

As we comic fans watch the movie making titans at Fox and Warner Bros battle over the fate of the film adaptation of Watchmen, one of the things that has stuck out the most is how the people involved in the creation of the film have remained quiet.

You’d figure for the years of hard work and labor the cast, crew, writers, animators, caterers and whoever else have put into the film, at least one of them would step up, and have their voice heard.

Well, that day has come.  An exclusive to the new movie site HitFlix, headed by one of the best writers from AICN, Drew “Moriarty” McWeeny, this letter from Watchmen producer Lloyd Levin holds nothing back, and if anything, left me with more respect for the team dedicated to making the “unflimable” graphic novel a silver-screen reality.

I’ve included the full text of the letter behind the cut.  I only hope come January 20th, whatever the outcome, Fox and Warner Brothers can unite to bring this film to the masses.  It needs to be seen. It needs to be heard. Make it so.
