The Ford Fusion Has A New Spokesperson, And It’s Sailor Moon

Sailor Moon for Ford Edge

Sailor Moon's busy schedule of fighting evil by moonlight and winning love by daylight doesn't leave a whole lot of time for after-school activities --- especially when you consider how much is taken up with eating, sleeping, and taking the easy way out. Now, though, it seems that young Usagi Tsukino has finally found a job that fits into her busy schedule: She is the new spokesperson for the Ford Fusion.

DC’s Latest Kentucky Fried Chicken Promo Comic Is Already The Best Comic Book Of The Year

Kentucky Friend Chicken Presents: The Colonel Corps

DC's latest promotional comic for KFC is a sequel to last year's "The Colonel of Two Worlds," in which Colonel Sanders teamed up with the Flash to fight Colonel Sunder, his evil counterpart from Earth-3. It involves an attack from Sunder that causes eleven of the Colonels Sanders of the Multiverse to each forget all but one of the Eleven Secret Herbs and Spices, meaning that they have to all team up to remember how to make fried chicken, including the Colonel Sanders of the Kingdom Come universe or the far-off future of the Legion of Superheroes. It posits that Colonel Sanders and Kentucky Fried Chicken are multiversal constants within the construct posited by Multiversity and Convergence, on par with Superman and Batman.

And it is the single best DC comic of the year.

DC And KFC Just Put Out A Comic About The Colonel Sanders Of Earth-3, Remember This For Next Year’s Eisners

KFC: The Colonel Of Two Worlds

So you remember a few months ago at San Diego, when Kentucky Fried Chicken put out a comic about Colonel Sanders and his various adventures as part of an attempt to get comic book fans to eat even more fried chicken than the not insignificant amount that we already do? At the time, I wondered whether this was going to be the start of something bigger, like an ongoing series, or maybe even a League of Extraordinary Gentlemen-style shared universe that would team him up with the Burger King and Wendy in a battle against Ronald McDonald.

It turns out that I was wrong, but not because I was thinking too big. I was thinking too small. This week, KFC and DC Comics put out story called "The Colonel of Two Worlds," where the late Harland Sanders is not only incorporated into the DC Universe, but into the DC Multiverse as a character important enough to have an evil counterpart on Earth-3.

Jon Burgerman Turns Movie Posters Into Hilariously Violent Action Scenes

Photo by Jon Burgerman,

I'm not really here to spoil your weekend with The Hard Questions, but I think there's an interesting debate you can have about whether advertising can truly be art. Like, we all have movie posters that we love, but does the idea of trying to sell you something change the nature of art? Does turning an aesthetic into a commodity cheapen it, and if so, what about all the Renaissance art that was commissioned from working artists in order to do just that? Is the Sistine Chapel really any different from Drew Struzan's Indiana Jones posters?

Folks, I don't know. I do, however, know that you can take existing advertisements and transform them into something that's fun and engaging.

That's exactly what artist Jon Burgerman has done with a series of photos called "Head Shots," where he takes the standard action movie poster to its logically violent conclusion while traveling through the subway. It's a pretty fantastic use of the stuff that's already out in public, and you can check out a few of the best ones below

‘One Piece’ And ‘Dragon Ball Z’ Throw Down In Real Life For The Best Video Game Ad Ever

Goku vs. Monkey D. Luffy art installation for J-Stars Victory Vs.

Apologies to anyone in marketing who might be reading this, but video game ads don't usually do much to get me excited. I think the last one that really made an impact was the one for Saints Row IV where they misspelled the name of the game and then went back to correct it all while blaring dubstep, and showing you explosions, but even that wasn't exactly "memorable," you know?

Now imagine that you're heading over to the department store, thinking about picking up a new video game, and you round the corner to see Goku from Dragon Ball Z and Monkey D. Luffy from One Piece in the middle of a life-sized brawl that has shattered the street, snapped a lamppost and flipped a car. Well, if you're heading to the Shibuya Parco store in Tokyo, that's exactly what you'll see, as an awesome promo for the upcoming J-Stars Victory Vs. And it is awesome.
