Following the massive success of ‘The Hunger Games’ movie (not the book, which had no success because it’s a book) and because people like to do the same thing over and over again to make money, a new block buster is in the making.
So movie goers should be avidly anticipating the Fall 2012 box office release of the ‘Thirst Games.’
Early trailers show that the movie is most likely a poor recreation of the Hunger Games with mass amounts of product placement, seeing as it is sponsored entirely by Gatorade and funded by Pepsi Co. Clips from the trailer suggest that the entire movie is just people working out, yelling and dripping sweat. Several clips have an athlete hanging their head then looking up intimidatingly.
So who will star in The Thirst Games? Soft drink stars such as the 7-Up Guy, who claims his name is Orlando Jones and that he has done other important roles. His history on MadTV shows otherwise. Opposite of 7-Up Guy is Cam Newton, whose portrayal of a man who didn’t want to be in this movie was so moving that it earned a him role. The Hawaiin Punch Guy shines in a supporting role as well as a bottle of Gatorade played by Samuel L. Jackson.
So come Fall 2012, expect the Thirst Games to shatter all box office records and become the largest product placement movie of all time. Powerade is not expected to make a similar push. They have no money. And All Sport is no longer a sports drink, but a key element in rat poisons and hair removal products.
