Remember that first time you saw the original A Nightmare On Elm Street? Freddy Krueger was literally something out of a nightmare. He was creepy, maniacal, and just plain fucking scary. But as the later NOES sequels went on, Freddy became more cartoonish – like a Three Stooges episode. His evil was replaced with yucks and bad puns. And the marketing they did for poor ol’ Freddy around these times? Oh, the marketing. Case in point: Freddy’s Bubble Gum!
Oh, Freddy :-/ But anyway, my point of this post isn’t to scold those involved with pimping Mr. Krueger out to the world with terrible ideas and concepts – my point for this is to let you know that you can buy that unopened box of Freddy’s Bubble Gum on eBay right now! Yay? For those who don’t know – the container is just a plastic tube filled with terrible tasting gum with a picture of Freddy at the top and a “clever” saying attached. I mean look, it’s nostalgic – even if I don’t agree with the direction they took him. So, if you want to own this piece of Freddy Krueger nostalgia….then head on over HERE to the eBay listing and snatch it up or make an offer. I would advise against eating that gum though.
