Grocery Store Wars
Alex Steffen, 2 May 05

In the tradition of the brilliant Meatrix, comes the latest from our allies at Free Range media: Grocery Store Wars.

It's a rough cut, but man is it awesome: Young Cuke and his teacher Obi-Wan Cannoli (who explains that "the Farm is a kind of a field, that creates all edible things... it sustains us and nurtures us, it binds us all together."), Chew-broccoli and Darth Tater ("now more chemical than vegetable, twisted and evil..."), the assault on the Death Melon and a kick-ass Mos Eisley cantina scene at the salad bar.

It's silly and cute and more impactful than a million finger-wagging hippies. This is worldchanging viral media in action. Look! Learn! Laugh!

May the Farm be with you!

(thanks for the sneak preview Tate!)\

Yikes!

OK how's this for finger wagging--

IMPACTFUL is not a word!
(Sorry I just couldn't let that go)


I so wish there were more of this kind of thing out there.

I've seen a number of very good Star Wars parodies and fan-fics. This might be the best one yet! Even more enjoyable to watch while eating a delicious organic Pink Lady apple =).

If I use it, and you know what I mean, it's a word, dude... ;)

agreed... way more impactful (i'll accept it's wordliness) than finger-wagging. thanks for the tip.

Along the same lines:
"Minneapolis website parodies new food pyramid"

We'll see how impactful it is over time, but I'm estimating it will be at least as impactful as several dozen hippies looking scornfully at you. :)

He he it's divisible, so no way is this reference at all impactful!! Phonetically, impact & ful are units capable of independent use.

really wanted to say, thanks for the store wars tip.
May the farce be with you!
