Star Wars Marketing Is Even More Absurd Around The World

Star Wars Marketing Is Even More Absurd Around The World

Human culture has reached a point of no return. The overwhelming barrage of Star Wars merchandise has pulverized the last remaining crumbs of our consumer dignity. Consider this product and cry with us: Star Wars Chicken Hot Dogs with Built-in Ketchup. And it gets worse.

The following photos were taken in several supermarkets in Hungary, just two days until the premiere of the new Star Wars movie. The movie’s not even out yet, and it’s hard to find food that’s not Star Wars-branded. What’s especially odd is that the new food items aren’t even necessarily specific to The Force Awakens. Behold the force of Lucasfilm’s marketing machine.

The dark side of the Star Wars merchandise

The ketchup is strong with this one

A million geese cried out in terror…

…at the sight of Darth Vader Foie Gras

Liver long and prosper… wait wrong movie…

Action-packed sliced chicken breast

You get six slices per pack

And it’s actually pretty bad
