Superhero Yearnings

In the lead up to next week's premiere of SUPER, I encourage you to listen to This American Life's Episode # 178, "Superpowers".  Among the highlights are the battle of invisibility vs. flying -- what does it reveal if you want one over the other. Plus it's got Chris Ware, Real-life Wonder Twins, & Kelly McEvers, whose done virtually everything one needs to do to be considered SUPER. As this was done by Ira quite awhile ago, we can't take credit for it as part of our guerilla campaign.  Perhaps you've seen other aspects of it though.

SUPER's Guerilla Marketing Campaign

I am forbidden to reveal how this was done and it would be wrong for anyone in the film to actually take credit.  These things take months of planning.  Most places forbid you from putting anything in the water supply -- and I am not saying anyone involved in the film actually did anything remotely related to such action.  Did you know though that there are already over 300 real-life Superheroes patrolling the streets of this great land? And yes, sometimes they get their nose broken.

You say you are not aware yet, what I am speaking about, when I say SUPER?  It opens on April Fools Day.  Seriously.

Watch this.

It's nice to see though that the super stealth guerilla campaign's seeds have been planted overseas too.  And how others are now taking the bait.

Thanks to Shade Rupe for the tip!

Superheroes Go Simpsons

We should all become Simpsons characters.  Let's face it, even before they say something, just looking at them makes you laugh.  What if when we dreamed we became ourselves but in the Simpsons style?

During The Great Transformation they are going to start with the Superheroes, leaving us Normals for the next wave.  Dean Fraser over at Springfield Punx has jump started the TGT for us.  These are just some of his creations...
