No matter what decade you were spawned, you've probably been the recipient of a Happy Meal from a certain popular fast-food franchise... but if you were already developing a taste for horror movies as a young pup, you might have found the included toys a little bit... well, tame for your taste.
We're guessing Artist Newt Clements might have felt the same disappointment growing up, so he's set out to remedy the situation by creating a series of Happy Meal concepts with the kind of themes any real monster kid would have loved to play with on the ride home (probably to their parents' dismay). He then pinned the completed works to his Pinterest board.
Sure, he's created some kid-friendly pieces (She-Ra, Little House on the Prairie) that would have fit comfortably in the “normal” Happy Meal format... but that's not what got our attention.
Frankly we'd rather play with Godzilla, axe-happy Jack Torrance from The Shining, or Regan from The Exorcist (no doubt with “realistic head-spinning action!”).
If only these had existed, our childhoods might have been a lot more fun... and maybe we'd grow up even more twisted than we already are.
Even if the company actually accepted any of these ideas (despite the irony of a Hunger Games-themed fast food item, it kinda seems halfway feasible from a marketing standpoint), the resulting legal battle would have been a horror story in itself. But we can still dream, damn it!
