Jurassic Park is one of the most recognizable movies ever made and because of it, it’s gotten tons of song parodies over the years, whether totally original or just writing lyrics to the main theme the franchise has gotten quite a few of them. So let’s take a look at some of the best musical parodies & tributes that Jurassic Park has gotten over the years.
Jurassic Park is one of the most famous franchises out there with kids and adults and yet it never really got an amazing fast food promotion but at the very least it has gotten some fast food love along side with some decent promotions and nice commercials to go along with them so let’s take a look at them.
McDonalds had the rights for Jurassic Park when the original movie came out however they couldn’t really get figures made for the Happy Meal since they had just gotten off from the controversy of making toys for the PG-13 movie Batman returns so they had a policy of no toys for movies rated above PG. They made up by having Dino Sized value meals which were a big hit and eventually became standard even though they weren’t originally meant to stay. Continue reading Jurassic Park Fast-Food→
Inspector Gadget is one of those weird franchises that has quietly had a few shows through out the decades without anyone really noticing them, in fact a lot of these shows I didn’t even know existed. Let’s take a loot at the theme songs of all these shows, since we know that the original show had the now classic opening theme and see if any of the future shows were able to match it.
Time can pass really quickly and here is one such example; Ten years ago “do u liek mudkips” was one of the most popular copypasta’s at 4chan. It felt fresh and so stupid that it was awesome, also back then there weren’t as many nostalgia ridden Pokemon fans which made the whole atmosphere better, besides the original copypasta which is below one other great thing it brought us was this song:
We have a new Magic School Bus cartoon but what we never had was a live action movie. Thankfully the internet has got us covered in this respect so why don’t we take a look at some live action parodies of The Magic School Bus.
The first one we have is a few years old but easily the best one as it really was able to pack every reference in and bits of personality of each student into the short 2 minute trailer without it feeling forced. This is a movie I would stay up for the midnight showing and cosplay to while listening to the opening of the show. Continue reading Magic School Bus The Movie Live Action Compilation→
Banjo-Kazooie was a game that wasn’t in my radar and yet when it came out I knew I had to have it. It wasn’t just me as we saw that this franchise is still fondly remembered. I remember getting copy of the game at Best Buy and the last bonus gift which was the soundtrack and a t-shirt, it was all pure luck too since i had no idea it was even a thing until I got into the store. Anywho, the game was the hit of the summer and Keebler was there just in time to take advantage of this.
Find the Magic Puzzle Piece with Banjo-Kazooie was a contest that Keebler cookies had where you could win a bunch of Nintendo swag just by getting lucky and eating cookies. I loved this commercial and it took me years before I was finally able to find it. The best part they even shrunk the commercial into magazines as I remember reading the ads on magazines like Disney Adventures Continue reading Banjo Kazooie’s Find the Magic Puzzle Puzzle Piece Keebler Contest→
I really enjoyed the live action version of Watchmen that we got, sure it messed a few things around but I think nerds online were a bit harsh on it as it kept itself fairly true to the source material. But now it seems like DC may be making an animated movie based on Watchmen to set things right. Who knows if it’ll happen and if it does will it be a part of the DCU animated films? In that case it will be around an hour and ten minutes since that’s how long they’ll last and all the regular flaws that we see in them. They’d really need to make it into two movies like the animated The Dark Knight Returns adaptation for it to work. But hey at least the animated Watchmen wasn’t made in the 80s right?
