Silver Surfing

When I went to watch the Pirates 3 movie recently, I saw this billboard for 20th Century Fox's upcoming summer flagpole: The Rise of the Silver Surfer.

I've seen pop out billboards before but not on this scale. There was no branding or letters anywhere - just the Surfer popping out of the board.

Which leads me to think - someone is going to walk home with that after the movie is done with. Much infighting is sure to ensue.

Very nice... my wife would be disgruntled if I brought this home as a "companion" for my life-size Darth Vader cut-out :-)

Scott I'll call you if there is a grab for this. Four hands are better than two at elbowing and poking the competition. I can keep it - you come visit. Win, win for everyone.

Scott and Aspi, Here's a money making scheme. The 3 of us could commission replicas of this in plastic or metal and sell them.....my kids would be first in line at the store.

Mind Rush, we'd have royalty issues. Unless we invent a similar character - like the "Metallic Skier" or something. How about "Shiny Surfboarder" - he could look similar but would have a goatee.
