Ronald McDonald - Burger King Wants to Ban It

Around the world, plenty of Hollywood movies get either banned or edited in order to meet certain strict censorship laws or adhere to cultural sensitivities. But this instance of Burger King‘s Russian division wanting to ban the recent adaptation of Stephen King’s It might be the most ridiculous situation of this kind that we’ve ever seen.

Reportedly, Burger King has filed a complaint with Russia’s Federal Anti-Monopoly Service (FAS) with the hope of having It banned in the country. Why? Well, they believe that the cannibal clown Pennywise at the center of the movie shares too much of a resemblance to Ronald McDonald, the mascot of McDonald’s, and purport that the movie somehow acts as an advertisement for Burger King’s fast food rival.

VOTD: How ‘Wonder Woman’ Should Have Ended

How Wonder Woman Should Have Ended

With $410.6 million at the domestic box office, Wonder Woman is not only the highest grossing film of the summer, but it’s the second highest grossing film of 2017, coming in behind Disney’s remake of Beauty and the Beast. While we wait for Wonder Woman to hit Blu-ray and DVD next week on September 19 (it’s already available for digital download), the money is still pulling in some cash at the box office. But the film’s success doesn’t keep it safe from lampooning.

How It Should Have Ended has stepped up to give Wonder Woman the comedic conclusion treatment by imagining a variety of routes the DC Comics movie could have taken. One of them includes a fantastic reference to Moana, which shares plenty of traits with Wonder Woman, while another features a crossover cameo from a certain Marvel Comics superhero. Plus, the ending features a fun twist on the usual way the HISHE videos come to a conclusion with Batman and Superman.
