Aqua Teen Hunger Force

This is biggest thing since the Tinky-Winky gay scandal. I'm watching the show now. Thanks to Huge Tiny Mistake for the pic.

Number one in tha hood, G.

My first introduction to ATHF was ayt work where we Authored a few DVDs for cartoon network. Our contact at the network is heavily into the show (her name appears, blacked out, in a memo reproduced on the back of one of the boxed sets - you have to tilt it in the light just the right way to see the name). I told her that Meatwad was my new role model, and she asked me if I could trabsform my body into a hot dog. I refrained from making any "Polish sausage" jokes, or any response at all, on the grounds that I might be immediately terminated.

Obscenity would be a little hard to prove with a character as sketchy as a Mooninite. In the picture above, it could easily be assumed that it is holding a cross.

I think that up until this incident this publicity campaign was probably a resounding failure. Three weeks and nobody noticed? And using a character only recognizable to people who are already fans? And no message attached? Maybe this was phase 1, and there was a second phase coming - a "find the Mooninites" game for each city , say, or a "Mooninite Invasion" campaign. But just sticking obscure characters in obscure places doesn't do much to advertise a product.

I think the jailhouse steps interview with the two promoters in Beantown should be nominated for YouTube video of the year.
