Retrun Of The Killer Tomatoes – FilmSack Edition
Opener: ahhh….The 80s. A time when a young man could find himself delivering pizza on a Honda Spree one day and the next …visiting a sex shop with a tomato. A very hot tomato. Wait, I just got that….tomato is a euphemism for hot woman. Crap..I may have to reevaluate this movie.

Pizza boy scooter Honda Spree.
She’s quiet the tomato…Tara…

Break the 4th wall so we can discuss product placement. When did that become a thing.
In April 2006, Broadcasting & Cable reported, “Two thirds of advertisers employ ‘branded entertainment’—product placement—with the vast majority of that (80%) in commercial TV programming.” The story, based on a survey by the Association of National Advertisers, said “Reasons for using in-show plugs varied from ‘stronger emotional connection’ to better dovetailing with relevant content, to targeting a specific group.”
“How about a Crest”
Does Crest still make those tubes?
I mean the movie was zany enough….but after the director calls cuts due to budget…it gets odd.

A punch to the gut is not the same as a punch to the nuts. But it seems like movies during this time would take that leap of faith.
Saved by the 4th wall.

I loved this movie series when I was a kid. I remember making my grandmother purchase a membership to a local movie rental joint just to be able to watch this when it came out. Just TRY and find the original on DVD these days. LOVED the cartoon. everything (timewise) lined up perfectly for my childhood with this franchise. I was doomed to be a weirdo. WEIRDO PRIDE!
