Deliciously appropriate product tie-ins

In the history of bad super-hero costumes, I think the Joel Schumacher Batman and Robin Nipple designs have to take home the Oscar (pardon the pun). His fetishistic take on these iconic figures put a stake in the heart of the movie franchise, which made this product tie-in ad I found in one of the Great Random Comics Pile just about perfect:

Batman and Robin Fruit Snack

Batman's glare seems to be saying "Yes, I'm being called a fruit right here on this box, and because I have been given nipple armor (not shown), I am powerless to react. Not that there's anything wrong with that. And Robin, if I've told you once I've told you a thousand times, get your left hand away from there!"

  1. Don’t forget Batman’s extra long codpiece that he keeps tripping over in that movie.

  2. Dude, that is hilarious. And he wore a codpiece? Well, I guess I don’t fit in with the people of this particular ad… but do you, Frankie?
