Kool-Aid Man's Footprints in Cement

Field review by the editors.

Hastings, Nebraska

Kool-Aid Man would have difficulty surviving in the wild, as his tracks are easily recognized. They resemble smiling balloon faces, although not the same smiling, finger-drawn face that fills Kool-Aid Man's drippy pitcher body. They are also slightly unsettling, and reminded us of nasty cinematic space aliens that absorb humans and leave only their faces as surviving appendages. If Kool-Aid Man approaches you, it might be wise to break out the flamethrower.

These footprints were made in a slab outside of Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood and were later moved here to satisfy Hastings' pride in all things Kool-Aid. The date of the prints is given as 2000, six years after Kool-Aid Man (the suit) was augmented by Kool-Aid Man (the digital software) in television commercials. As slick as computer animation had become, it couldn't leave tracks in wet cement.

Oh Yeah! - Kool-Aid Man's footprints in cement.
