What a difference a decade makes. In 2002, when Men in Black II was released, I couldn’t have been more excited. (What? I was 15 at the time.) Not only did I love the original, but I knew all the dance moves to Will Smith’s theme song and felt a sense of personal success whenever made reference to their character names, J and K. My initials! And then: I saw Men in Black II, hated it, and honestly haven’t liked a single film of Will Smith’s since.
Maybe that’s why I couldn’t give two shits about Men in Black III, which comes out on May 25. Heck, I even forgot how soon its release day is, until I was trolling the ice cream message boards and noticed that Baskin-Robbins is coming out with MIB-themed flavors. “Pink Surprise Cake,” anyone?
It’s yet another lame promotional tie-in between a movie and fast food company, which got me thinking: what other sh*tty products and toys have chain “restaurants,” like Burger King and Taco Bell, given away over the years, not only for movies, but just in general? Here are 15 you can purchase online.
