Benjamin Collison Collides Star Wars and Lord of the Rings
Benjamin Collison, whose deviantART username is Ferret42, is a London-based artist and it's clear he's as humorous as he is talented. Yup, that's an illustration of Yoda taking on the Balrog that Gandolf famously defeated. Collison's title for the picture, 'Pass you shall not,' parodies Gandolf's dialogue in Yoda's infamous speaking style. And one does not simply walk into Mordor, but I guess you can when you're being carried on the back of Boba Fett.
Implications - Franchise crossovers often reinvigorate consumer interest in the series involved as it offers viewers new content that's simultaneously familiar, but refreshing. Corporations looking to generate interest in a goods staple can similarly look to collaborate with other equally-famed product lines.
