7-Elevens Turn Into 'Simpsons' Kwik-E-Marts


www.cnn.com

Over the weekend, 7-Eleven Inc. turned a dozen stores into Kwik-E-Marts, the fictional convenience stores of "The Simpsons" fame, in the latest example of marketers making life imitate art.

Those stores and most of the 6,000-plus other 7-Elevens in North America will sell items that until now existed only on television: Buzz Cola, KrustyO's cereal and Squishees, the slushy drink knockoff of Slurpees.

It's all part of a campaign to hype the July 27 opening of "The Simpsons Movie," the big-screen debut for the long-running television cartoon, which loves to lampoon 7-Eleven as a store that sells all kinds of unhealthy snacks and is run by a man with a thick Indian accent.

Personally, as a HUGE Simpsons fan, I think it's funny. I know I'll go to one of these Kwik-E-Marts just to check it out. I'm waiting to see when the first protests will start though...........

I think it's hilarious. I don't know that I would drive out of my way to go to one (the nearest to me is not really very close) but I think it's a really fun idea. If it was closer to my house I would definitely go check it out.

I'll have to dig up my Kwik-E-Mart hat!

I wonder if the KrustyO's will have the special surprise KrustyO in them?!
