Phantom Menace Watch 1: Let's Party Like it's 1999!

This February a mysterious phantom menace will once again cast its shadow across our silver screens, as George Lucas' critically maligned Episode One returns, this time in glorious 3D! Personally I am 100% on board   with the film, because for good or bad it is amazingly entertaining. Did I mention that I also think that Batman and Robin is amazingly entertaining? Look, seriously, it's going to be great - turn that frown upside down, have a beer, and just go and have fun with it.

But what's exciting me the most now is the realisation that we are about to be flooded by all manner of bizarre merchandising tie-ins. Sure, it's not going to reach the outlandish levels of 1999 hype, but there's no reason we can't enjoy a 1999 lite. I am hereby committing to help cover some of the more bizarre tie-ins on the road to making our upcoming few months more phantomy and menacey. And what better way to kick things off then this  batshit insane commercial for Brisk Iced tea. Seriously, check this out...

Now honestly tell me you're not excited for a bit of Episode One! Come on! I am going to break each and every one of you.

It really feels good to finally break out the "Star War" label again...

  1. So freaking weird!

    I'm really excited about the onslaught of Star Wars merchandise though. It's been too stale for too long.
