Now this is sweeter than a lollipop-sucking Eliza Dushku!
Warner Bros’ “Watchmen” have some terrific tin-advertising planned for jars of coffee.
â€œWatchmenâ€ photographer Clay Enos has enlisted his Organic Coffee Cartel to produce a first-of-its-kind movie tie-in coffee for Zach Snyder’s highly-hankered-for flick.
On Tuesday, February 17, OCC will introduce Veidt Enterpriseâ€™s â€œNite Owl Dark Roast,â€ a limited-edition confection and collectible designed for fans and organic coffee gourmands alike. A portion of the proceeds from the special roast will be donated to charity.
One side of the uniquely crafted steel can resembles artwork straight out of the â€œWatchmenâ€ universe; the other side features Enosâ€™ striking black & white portrait of Nite Owl, played in the film by Patrick Wilson. And with just ONE run of cans produced, this is sure to be a distinctive and rare collectible.
â€œMaking an imaginary coffee into something real seemed like a fitting and fun way to honor the multi-layered world of â€˜Watchmen.â€™ And having a majority of profits go to charity seems a little like something Adrian Veidt would do,â€ says Enos.
â€œZack Snyder and the other filmmakers got behind the coffee idea early on and suggested the contest to me. I am so excited by the idea of making someone’s day not just with great coffee but with an opportunity to be a part of the celebration for the highly anticipated film,â€ says Enos. â€œItâ€™s a dream in the making.â€
â€œNite Owl Dark Roastâ€ Coffee is only available online while supplies last through the OCCâ€™s webstore at http://www.organiccoffee.com
