John, Paul, George and Ringo are all identifiable in the Boot-lego Beatles band. Revolver to Legolver in my personal favourite if you consider Heather Mills.

Implications - The use of iconic toys and iconic band covers is just another mash-up meme that pop culture enthusiasts have created. With the development of constant sharing via social media, memes have the potential to increase a fan base. For companies, this is a great way to revive a product. Ideas such as generating a competition to create fan-based art surrounding the product is a great way to create a buzz amongst consumers. The effect of pop culture coinciding with the Internet is beneficial for companies to capitalize on.
