World Turned Upside Down

Ok, let me set the stage. Mike Judge (creator of Beavis and Butthead and Office Space) made an uneven but still wildly inspired and hilarious movie last year called Idiocracy, about the triumph of stupidity in America. Fox did nothing to promote the film and it died quietly. But now it seems that someone is making and selling the fictional soft drink from the movie.

Of this abomination, one blogger wrote - "So, to recap: Fox wouldn't support a film about Brawndo, the energy drink that destroys plants, debases the human race, and makes those who drink it 'win at yelling', but they are now putting wholehearted support behind the actual drink." Awesome.

Now watch the commercial...
