This isn’t exactly news, but I thought it was pretty funny…
CHUD reader Josh was recently at a Century Theater in Illinois and snapped this quick pic of an especially provocative arrangement of teaser posters for Superman Returns, Eragon and the new Pirates of the Caribbean. For clarity I included the original posters outside of their overly illuminated hanging homes, but the implication is fairly obvious, and it doesn’t involve pitching Twizzlers or nachos (unless you do it differently than I do).
Was this an actual subliminal marketing decision? A happy accident? The work of a bored and creative usher? Considering there are newer alternatives for those posters you have to assume it was somehow deliberate, although I’m not sure why a theater chain would be promoting copulation. The floors are usually sticky enough already.
Thanks again to Josh, who immediately thought of CHUD when SEX entered his mind.
