Hot mug of Watchmen

02.18.2009

Simply by virtue of being a big superhero/comic book movie, WATCHMEN is susceptible to all kinds of merchandising. And as is often the case, some of that merchandise is decent, some of it is rubbish, and some of it is... just a little bizarre.

Submitted for your categorization: The Organic Coffee Cartel introduces "Nite Owl Dark Roast" Coffee, and a contest to win tickets to the movie's premiere. WATCHMEN photographer Clay Enos has enlisted his Organic Coffee Cartel (OCC®) to produce a first-of-its-kind movie tie-in coffee for WATCHMEN, the upcoming film adaption of the celebrated graphic novel.

OCC has introduced Veidt Enterprise’s "Nite Owl Dark Roast," a limited-edition confection and collectible designed for fans and organic coffee gourmands alike. And with just ONE run of cans produced, this is sure to be a distinctive and rare collectible. A portion of the proceeds from the special roast will be donated to charity.

OCC is sponsoring a contest for one lucky customer to win two tickets to the Los Angeles premiere and after-party for “Watchmen” on March 3rd, 2009. Orders must be placed before February 26th, 2009. Full contest rules here.

For the matter, the company producing the cans, as "darkstrEam" pointed out, the majority of the $ goes to charity.

And what Watchmen and Coffee fan wouldn't want something like this? You could certainly do much worse when it comes to Watchmen merchandise.

doesn't really hurt anyone, and it's a bit of fun that benefits a charity - one can take such things too seriously y'know.

Bah

Well actually the fact that Veidt Enterprises is on it makes it look like something that should be in the movie because Adrian Veidt is a big sellout in the comic but I still think this is something that should stay in the movie. Alan Moore has every right to grumble.

As somebody who has never read the Watchmen graphic novel, nothing about that coffee says 'Watchmen' to me. If I hadn't seen this Joblo article, I would've had no idea. If this is supposed to be a shameless marketing plug it could stand to be a little less vague.

I've worked for starbucks for 3 years and Id quit if an OCC shop opened up down the block. With a name like that, Who the fuck wouldn't want to work for you. I'd feel like I'd be working for a Columbia coffee cartel, lol
