Within the Nineties, Taco Bell, KFC, Pizza Hut, McDonald’s, and Burger King typically selected chaos with their tie-ins, just like the Batman Endlessly glass mugs or the Hercules plates. Heck, even when massive occasion movies just like the Star Wars prequels got here out, quick meals mascots just like the Taco Bell chihuahua and KFC’s Colonel would get their very own in-universe sagas.
io9 appears again on a number of the most spectacular and random toys, cups, and different film tie-ins that had been born out of sheer ingenuity to entice children and their mother and father to chow down.
