In a spoof that pokes fun at the number of summer blockbuster movies resurrecting childhood characters, a new video gives iconic food mascots like Mrs. Butterworth machine guns, ammo, and a mission.
The mock movie trailer, which aired on an episode of Conan Tuesday night, pit the iconic maple-flavored syrup character, Mrs. Butterworth against "the greatest forces of evil ever assembled" - the Hamburger Helper glove, Mr. Peanut from Planters, and kiddie character Dora the Explorer.
In the action flick - set to release on August ‘39' - Mrs. Butterworth is an angry, machine-gun wielding Terminator out to avenge the death of the Quaker Oats man.
"When justice runs thin, only one woman has what it takes to pour it on thick," says the narrator.
