One wonders how much moolah DreamWorks dropped on this new promotional Tropic Thunder LOLcat featuring Ben Stiller‘s Tugg Speedman. I’m not the one. Rather than take on Hollywood’s cause du jour, Global Warming, Speedman’s preferred charity is Pandas. Mmm/blech, Panda Express.
This week also witnessed the unmasking of Speedman’s Tom Cruise-biting website, leaving many (employed) bloggers to declare Cruise’s IRL site victorious. And this wouldn’t be news if we didn’t mention that I Can Haz Cheezburger just launched a new celeb-skewering site called Totally Looks Like. Example: Glenn Close’s face…totally looks like…Peter Weller’s head in RoboCop. (theirs).
Discuss: Would you like to see more studios use/resurrect the LOLcat format to market blockbusters? If so, explain. If you feel the new viral strategy “rapes geek culture” as one reader commented, add your magic to the LOLcat here and share below. Would you go see I Can Haz Cheezburger: Theatrical Movie?
