Burger King Promotion

Hey, im new here, and pumped for the new Indy flick,

I've heard here and there that Burger King will be included in the promotion for KOTCS, What do u think theyre planning and when it starts??? I wonder if its going to be like the Star Wars ROTS line. I hope they have toys, crowns, cups etc. I love collecting burger king toys. What do u all think???

I think it'd be pretty nifty and somewhat likely that BK would get the SD toys going for Indy, possibly a collection spanning the entire series of films as the SW toys did a few years ago.

This saddens me.

Godamned marketing. We're a world defined by our symbols rather than one where we define our symbols. You know? Whatever happened to creativity and artistic expression? The value of expression. Now there's no value unless it can be plastered with a Burger King logo.

Meh.

Indiana Jones is such a SERIOUS artistic expression.

Nicely put. Unfortunately, I share your sentiments. I've decided to adopt moedred's logic of legitimation, though. It's much easier that way:

I merged the "King" with the rest of fluff news.

This moedred seems wise. I admit that I feel the same way about the surge of commercialism. I tend to like things that aren't so commercial. But if Indy 4 is good I'm going to have to like it anyway and just ignore all this commercialism.

Wit limitless composition time, the wisdom of King Solomon or Burger is achievable! I'm pleased with the marketing onslaught. Notice how these promotions all say "only in theaters" below the movie title. Licensees could learn a thing or two from Lucasfilm about herding people like cattle into theaters. If this repels a few, fine, more bacon and pepper jack Indy Whoppers for me!

Meh.

I get where you're coming from RA, but come on. Indy hasn't really been in the spotlight very much in the past 20 years. And this whole ordeal is going to come and go pretty quick... at least, this level of marketing will.

Besides, advertisements have never worked on me anyway. It doesn't sadden me to see the Burger King dressed up as Indy. I think it's kind of funny.

Doesn't mean I want to go buy a whopper.
