The Revenge of Orville Popcorn

Looks like Godzilla vs. Megalon‘s semi-almost- kind-of-controversial “Orville Popcorn” sketch might not be too far off the mark after all.

Last month (I’m playing catch-up, okay?), Orville Redenbacher was brought back from the dead via that great necromancer of the modern age, CGI. The 30-second commercial used a real-live stand-in for the body, but fabricated the late Orville’s head via the creepiness of computers. [video] How long will it be before Orville’s popcorn empire regains its prominence? How long until the coming popping-corn overlord seeks vengeance on those who’ve wronged him? And what the heck did happen to his son?

Incidentally, you don’t by any chance suppose that it was this very skit that crippled Rhino’s Volume 10 set, do you? It’s out-there, but nothing would surprise me, at this point.
