Your $5,000 Ass Here

eBay Movie Couch

Via MTV’s Movies Blog comes the mother of all Simpsons merchandise.  If it looks familiar that’s because this is one of the promo pieces that were shipped to theaters for the movie.  I don’t recall the one at my local multiplex having an extra seat next to Homer (there was a rope around it to keep people from breaking it), but what do I know?  It is neither cheap nor small, the eBay description lists it as 12 feet long and weighing in at approximately 400 lbs and the “BuyItNow” price, before shipping, is $5,000.

Somewhat bizarrely, that’s not a television remote Homer is holding.  It’s a disappointingly generic “Candy” box.  It’s neither a product tie-in brand or a fake Simpsons brand, it just says “Candy”.  I could see super-paranoid movie people not wanting to use his more customary Duff can there; putting a beer can (even a fake plastic one) where children might see it could piss of teetotaling morons, after all.  But why not a remote control?  Did a product tie in fall through at the last minute?

Useful Legal Tidbit

Even though it’s obvious to anyone with a functional frontal lobe and a shred of morality, we feel the need to include this disclaimer. This website (which openly advocates for the cancellation of a beloved television series) is in no way, shape or form affiliated with the FOX Network, the News Corporation, subsidiaries thereof, or any of Rupert Murdoch’s wives or children. “The Simpsons” is (unfortunately) the intellectual property of FOX. We and our crack team of one (1) lawyer believe that everything on this site falls under the definition of Fair Use and is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. No revenue is generated from this endeavor; we’re here because we love “The Simpsons”. And besides, you can’t like, own a potato, man, it’s one of Mother Earth’s creatures.
