Indiana Jones & The Products Of The Lucasfilm Marketing Machine
Can you tell where this post is going? But first up, some sad news. I hope you're sitting down...

Mickey, how could you?

CADBURY have dropped the PHIL "How Come Peter Gabriel Gets Respect And I Don't?" COLLINS track In The Air Tonight and the gorilla from their ad campaign - see the story, in full, HERE. I'm sure the gorilla will be okay but what about Phil? What about Phil?? [MRS LOVEJOY] Won't somebody please think about Phil??? [/MRS LOVEJOY] In better news for him, it looks like that THE SAMARITANS will be doing a new campaign for teen suicide. They're gonna use Sussudio and subtely change the lyrics.

Cate, how could you?

Yes, that is a can of DR PEPPER. Or, as it now called, [SHORT ROUND] Doctor Jones! [/SHORT ROUND] So you'll need something to snack on while you're drinking out of CATE "I Didn't Sign Up For This!" BLANCHETT's head. Oh, I know!

Temple of crunch!

Yummy! An M&M Cookie Ice-Cream Sandwich! Interesting that they are using a RAIDERS pic on the front. 'Old' men can't sell? (Yes, I am aware he was a kick in the arse off of forty when he did that one). If that gets you craving some real ice~cream then don't worry, the marketing dudes have struck up a deal with kiddy~killers NESTLE!

Someone's going to hell for this one.

But that's okay 'cos you get free stuff to ease your conscience. Our friends in JAPAN want to get in on the act too, though they do it in much more interesting fashion. Here's a collection of, erm, 'things'?

Even in Japan, MARION's got a kitchen utensil.

Yeah, freaky. EMPIRE magazine was always quick to exploit STAR WARS, with their eight million covers a year that they do, so it's no surprise that they've done an INDY special. Looks quite nice.

June 1st 1952: My boss wants me to go to Peru. He's dreamy.

I would like to wonder how, as the cover suggests, that Indy Comes Home? I thought EMPIRE was made in the UK? To finish with, here's a couple of stills from the forthcoming flick, INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTALL SKULL, enjoy!

RAIDERS is back!

"I hope he doesn't shoot his load in my face"


'Til the next time,
C.
