The world's largest convenience store chain may get a movie make-over if all goes as planned, as 20 Century Fox is in talks with 7-Eleven to make over 11 of their stores so that they look like the Kwik-E-Mart. The Kwik-E-Mart, of course, is the convenience store that appears in almost every episode of the Simpson’s and this is all part of the promotion push for the Simpson’s Movie, which comes out July 27. So how much would you pay for a knife like this, but wait there’s more! The source says:
Customers also will be able to buy products inspired by the nearly two-decades-old show, including KrustyO's cereal, Buzz Cola and iced Squishees (the cup says Squishee, but the contents will be Slurpee). The chain also will use pictures of Simpsons characters to promote 7-Eleven's line of fresh foods, such as placing the face of Homer and his classic "Mmmm . . . sandwich" quip on sandwich wrappers.I've never been hungry enough to sample any of 7-Elevens line of "fresh foods" and no amount of cartoon comradery will make me do otherwise, but I would trek whatever distance was necessary to go to a Kwik-E-Mart. I would also watch two hot chicks make out, but then I'm pretty open minded.
