Like many on social media, I follow people who are mutual fans of particular actors or movie/tv shows. etc. Today my Twitter and blog feeds were abuzz with news of the release of some merchandise featuring Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange. And here just a few years ago Benedict said in an interview that he never wanted to be on a lunchbox and stuff like that lol. The first thing that popped into my brain was a line from one of my favorite Mel Brooks films, “Spaceballs”, where he played a character named Yogurt.
“Merchandising, merchandising, where the real money from the movie is made.”
To be fair though I probably would be on the lookout for the pint glasses. 😛
Got to admit, some of the stuff looks cool (what can be cooler than Benedict though right?).
