Freebie Friday: Gift With Purchase Watches
I came across these three watches whilst cleaning out the cellar. They are all gift with purchase pieces. Above is a Talking Krusty the clown watch that was part of a Burger King promotion from 2002. The weird thing is that I found the box in an earlier purge and threw it out thinking the watch was lost. The even weirder thing is that the battery is still working after 13 years (although Krusty’s “Hoo Hoo Ha Ha” catchphrase sounds slow and menacing — just like the evil Krusty Doll in The Simpsons’ “Treehouse of Terror III.”
Speaking of evil, here’s another Burger King promo piece from the terrible Star Wars prequel The Phantom Menace. It’s from 2005 and features Obi-Wan Kenobi on one side and Darth Maul on the reverse. I don;t know where Burger King is getting its batteries, but this ten-year-old timepiece is also still keeping time.
And finally, a fancy Christian Dior Eau Sauvage gift with purchase watch. Of course it would be nicer (aka more saleable) if it said Dior on it, but it’s not a bad-looking timepiece.
