Pop Fusion

Companies further capitalize on pop culture by creating iconic hybrids

Implications - Classic pop cultural characters have a definite appeal to the general population. However, the sameness that is recurrent in these icons may become a little mundane. By merging distinct pop culture characters to form unique combos, businesses boost the popularity of all the icons featured, presenting their fans with something that is both familiar and new at the same time.
