View Full Version : Anyone seen The Simpsons cinema advertising yet?

I dont know if this is new but it was just put out here in Australia. They are using a fully life size 3D model of the Simpsons sitting on their couch, made from a hard plastic not cardboard. And you can sit next to Homer on the left of the couch and have your photo taken (if the cinema allows).

Yeah, they have both of those at my theater too. I think they're pretty neat. It was funny, when I was leaving the theater after seeing Waitress, I was walking with my friend and out of the corner of my eyes, I saw the thing for The Simpsons, then I saw someone moving next to Homer and I screamed because I didn't know people could go in there and I thought one of the things was moving. ;)

Anyway, I've seen the trailer attached to a few movies. The last being Shrek the Third, I believe.

I saw this at my local theatre and thought it was completely awesome. I really need to get a picture with me on the couch while they still have it around. Well thats all for now GOoD JOURNEY my fellow schmoes.

It's blurry, but I did it real fast because I didn't want to get kicked out of the theater. And yes, that is me sitting there.

Fuck that thing. I work at a theatre and it took me 5 hours to build that fucking thing. Everytime I see a kid crawing on it I flip my shit. Why must the studios tourture us poor theatre employees with insane standees as of lately. I took one look at the huge silver surfer standee and said hell no.

yea we have one exactly like that at our theater in fort wayne (Rave) I took my little nephews to see Surfs up and they went and sat on the couch

Hey if I still worked at a theatre it would be an honor for me to assemble this. Then again THE SIMPSONS is my favorite show and I have watched it for the last 18 years. Hard to believe it has been such a long time. Well thats all for now GOoD JOURNEY my fellow schmoes.

Well here's the picture I took with it. It didn't come out the greatest but oh well:


Well thats all for now GOoD JOURNEY my fellow schmoes.
