Grab One of Eli Roth's Thanksgiving Shirts or Posters
Remember Eli Roth's fake trailer in Grindhouse titled Thanksgiving? Who could forget that disgustingly hilarious work of cinematic art! Well in honor of that wonderful holiday arriving in under a week, NECA has created a poster and shirt of the fake trailer, which they're selling over at Hot Topic. They feature a Thanksgiving turkey with a butcher knife in it and say simply "Arrive hungry…leave stuffed." Show how big of a fanboy you are by sporting this shirt down at your local theater or in front of all your friends. I am personally buying one of these and wearing it to Thanksgiving dinner with my family on Thursday.
The shirt is $18 (click here to buy) over at Hot Topic and the poster is only $4.50 (click here to buy). I think the best word to describe the poster is repulsive, but then again, some people may want that on their wall! At least the shirt isn't that disgusting.
Here's what Roth had to say about the shirts and posters, saying that he's trying to eventually turn this into a real movie.
"The first step towards turning a fake trailer into a real movie is to convince the unsuspecting public that it actually exists, and what better way to do that than with a Thanksgiving t-shirt and poster of the Dan Frisch turkey?? They will be for sale at Hot Topic," says Roth. "We're planning on doing more stuff, including action figures, depending on what the demand is. And who knows? It may even turn into a real movie one day…"
I'm a huge fan of any and all movie-based t-shirts and will always support great shirts related to movies, whether cult classics or promo items. This one just caught my eye and was worth mentioning for its cult status. And for the fact that it would be perfect to wear on Thursday in front of all those relatives who don't have a clue what it all means!
Eli Roth also has an entire film in the works featuring fake trailers titled Trailer Trash (click for more info on the film). That's slated for release next August 22nd, 2008. And if that goes incredibly well, which we're expecting it to, then expect more ridiculous shirts and swag.
