Buy n Large. (flash) "Because at Buy n Large, we want you to leave your life to us."

Yes, it's a marketing site for a movie. But it's cool, entertaining, and surprisingly deep.

What movie is this for?

It is somehow even more poignant that they are making such a clever commentary, and doing it to make money. Metacommentary! I think it belongs here for sure.

Says the guy who recently linked to a marketing scheme by a clothing designer.

Copyright date on that pseudo-site is 2057? Bah, the Corporate Powers That Be will have that level of consolidation by 2017 easy. Maybe 2015.

At Buy & Large, your family is our most valuable asset.

Heh. OK, that was worth an FPP.

Haha Disney.

The trailer is actually kind of horribly creepy to me. And I won't directly link it, because then it really would be a marketing post.
