If you have been dreaming of a well painted Liger this Holiday season instead of a White Christmas, this may be as close as you’re going to get.
I don’t know about you, but 12 years later and my best friend and I will randomly bust out in complete Napoleon Dynamite banter as if it were yesterday that she was having a showing of the movie. And of course we had foods such as “tots” on our themed menu. How could you not? Pocket snacks for life!
So imagine my surprise when I was just minding my own business and this gem of a commercial appeared before my eyes via TMZ (via Facebook as I’m not keeping up with TMZ).
Napoleon, looks righteous as EVER in his gold puffed jacket, while Pedro appears to be rocking some Iowa fashion straight from the movie, styled in the era of the late 80’s, of course.
Okay okay, the TOTS. Napoleon asks if Pedro is snacking on some “Cheesy Tots” then proceeds to ask for one, but instead takes all of them. AGHHH! One would get their hopes up that a dang quesidilla is coming on the menu next, but who knows? If there ever is a sequel or remake or reboot for Napoleon Dynamite, this ad sure did get my attention. Napoleon Dynamite is in that pop culture sweet spot right about now, so it’s nice that the home of the Whopper realized that in their marketing efforts. I’m sure Jon Heder and Efren Ramirez didn’t mind either. Napoleon and Pedro gotta eat!
Napoleon finishes by asking for the rest of Pedro’s drink, of course. So go out and enjoy the day, and don’t forget the best pocket snacks of the century are available at Burger King. Have it your way. Gosh!
