A hacky sack movie? Maybe with ICM signing on to rep Wham-O

01.31.2011

Have you ever thought that hacky sack would make for a great movie? What about Slip 'N Slide? Or maybe even Frisbee? Well brace yourself because this could all be possible.

ICM agency has signed the iconic toy company Wham-O for representation. Most of you have used a toy from Wham-O like a Frisbee, Hula Hoop, or Super Ball. Products like those have been around since the 1950's and '60's. Later down the line they sold things like Slip 'N Slide, Hacky Sack and Boogie body boards. Today they are still selling millions and millions of products.

ICM will look to, "package Wham-Os unique products for movies, television, music and online content in the same vein as it did with Atari. So far, the agency has guided three Atari properties into the film realm: Asteroids at Universal, Rollercoaster Tycoon with Sony Pictures Animation and Missile Command at 20th Century Fox."

Wham-O was founded by Arthur Melin and Richard Knerr, who traveled the world to find inspiration for toys. Thankfully a few of their toy ideas didn't take off like do-it-yourself bomb shelter and the "instant fish" idea that consisted of selling mud with eggs from a unique species of African fish. Sadly, those fish would not mate in America. We all feel robbed.

I can't wait for this. No wait, that's wrong, reading this article made me go stupid for a moment. This is the worst idea since Twilight.

Yeah.

Okay, that's fine. Sometimes you have to TRY something before you can be sure it is a stupid idea. So, that's okay. Why worry? It won't be around long enough to make us suffer.

To even have this as a topic is a slap in the face to anyone that works in the industry and takes pride in their craft. For fans of movies in general, it's a reality check that some parts of Hollywood are circling the bowl in drastic fashion.

A HACKY SACK MOVIE?

Hopefully the hippies writing the script use the pages for rollin' doobies instead. "Like Dude, weren't we supposed to be writing somethin'?" "Forget it Dude, lets just go play hacky sack."

Extra tidbit : The Hudsucker Proxy (my favorite Coen bros movie) was also the first thing that came to my mind when I read the news. It was an awesome movie, but in no way does that mean that doing a "slip n slide" movie is a good idea...
