I'm not sure how I missed this little nugget of weirdness, but apparently a press release was issued by Warner Bros. a couple weeks back, informing the world of their plans to issue a line of toasters this September in honor of some of their hottest properties. The toasters will not only be branded with film and television show logos, but will actually burn images of beloved characters into the slices of toast they produce.
Some of the properties involved in this bizarre money making scheme? Nightmare On Elm Street, Friday The 13th & Gremlins. I shit you not.
Anyone else simultaneously scratching their head over this and secretly craving some Freddy toast? I mean, it is fucking stupid as can be, but I am in the market for a toaster and I'd rather have one that burns Freddy into my toast than one that doesn't. Just sayin'.
OK stop it, John. Resist the urge. This is fucking bottom of the barrel lame and you know it. RESIST!!!
Sorry inner self, but if a Freddy laugh emanates from the bowels of this thing when the toast is ready, I'm afraid resistance will be futile...
