A Bevy of Hunger Games Merch, Promotion, Stuff . . . *facepalm*

Listen, guys, I love The Hunger Games and I’m excited as anyone for the film to come out this month, but some of the ways it’s being promoted, official or otherwise, just baffles me. Let’s take a look, shall we?

  • Mattel to release a Katniss Barbie Doll.  What the what?  I think the best response to this is “It’s hard to imagine little kids reenacting the bloody combat of the Hunger Games in Barbie’s Malibu dream house.”



  • Though the Daily Burn seems to be completely serious in their creation of a Hunger Games workout regimen, I personally find myself more appreciative of Jezebel’s sarcasm-laden Tips to Get You Hunger Games Skinny.

Put on the most beautiful dress you can find, cover yourself in gasoline, then light yourself on fire. Not only will this make you like Katniss, the Girl on Fire, but it will also make you burn mega carbs as you run around screaming for help.
