Hollywood loves a sequel. The cash-cows of popular franchises can be milked for decades! Who’d have thought you could squeeze a single film out of Big Mama’s House, let alone two follow ups?!
So with the world admiring RPatz in his latest outing Water for Elephants I got to thinking about wringing some more cash out of that franchise with a raft of sequels.
I immediately discounted Guinness for Toucans or Kia Ora for Crows as way too obvious – but here are some ideas for the next installement…
Midori for Dolphins
Irn Bru for Weasels^
Ribena for Squirrels
Flat White for Kangaroos*
Beer for Possums*
Earl Grey for Killer Whales
Limeade for Penguins
Lucozade for Kingfishers
Red Bull for Gerbils
Real ale for Badgers
Peppermint tea for Wrens^^
Special brew for Meerkats
Martinis for Lions
This is by no way an exhaustive list and all suggestions are welcome.
