DC will produce Watchmen branded toasters - yes, toasters - as part of a new Warner Bros. home appliance branding initiative.
In the "we swear we're not making this up" department, The Outhouse received a press release from Dynamic Forces today advertising a new line of toasters branded with iconic Warner Bros. properties, including Alan Moore's oft-exploited Watchmen. The toasters singe an image from the property into the bread as it is toasting, reportedly, "making a fun impression on your breakfast, lunch, or midnight snack." So if you're the type of person who believes midnight toast binges would be greatly improved by a burnt image of Doctor Manhattan's dong, this the product you've been waiting for.
Fanboys have spent the better part of 2012 arguing over the controversy created when DC announced that they would be producing Watchmen prequels titled Before Watchmen, and Moore himself has been vocally critical of the prequel project, as well as all other adaptations of his work, all comic book projects done after 1995, and bread cooking devices of any kind. The Outhouse reached out to Moore for comment, but was rebuffed sternly by his beard.
Other properties up for the toaster treatment are The Wizard of Oz, Gremlins, Nightmare on Elm Street (yum!), and Where the Wild Things Are. Look for these toasters, and hopefully more kitchen appliances, in September.
