Hey, now I'm just some dude with his wife and his cat in an apartment in Texas, but I at least thought I was hip to the ways suits in Hollywood sell movie ideas to each other... and pamphlets wasn't one that I had in mind.
Yep. Supposedly, one of the ways MGM is trying to attract investors for its projected 2010 remake of Robocop is through one of those fold-y paper things you find at rest stops along the highway.
Okay. But couldn't they have at least generated a better cover for the pamphlet than the above? Dude just looks like a model with some super futuristic sunglasses on. I mean look how full his lips are. Is he gonna kiss me or arrest me?
But the best part of the pamphlet is the flip side (CLICK TO ENLARGE)...
And, I mean, how is this done?
In Hollywood will you just regularly find these underneath your windshield wiper when you walk to your car back from lunch like most of us would find a promo card for a rave or the newest pizza joint?
I can just imagine Lindsay Lohan getting in her car, driving down Sunset Blvd., and then noticing a pamphlet for the Back To The Future remake flapping in the wind. Then she gets all pissed and turns the wipers on, even squirting wiper fluid on there in hopes to dislodge it before yelling at Samantha Ronson to try and grab it, but then they just giving up and doing coke lines off of some of the vinyl Samantha has in her bag...
I mean, do the residents in Beverly Hills and Malibu walk to the front of their homes and find fliers for The Shining remake jammed into the crease of the door and rubber-banded onto their doorknobs? Is this how it goes down? Say it ain't so, Li-Lo.
