Becoming Superhero

Racing Batmobiles, Superhero Sneakers and Mega Ramp Skateboarding

— November 12, 2008 — Special
Imagine my surprise when I realized that the buzz today is about the Obama family’s Peruvian hairless dog.  I’m not saying that Peruvian hairless dogs are boring, I’m just saying these dogs lack the kind of superhero starpower we’ve come to expect from the Obama family.

Accordingly, today’s episode of Trend Hunter TV was created to be the opposite of the Peruvian hairless dog.  Instead of being something innocent and cute, we are here to teach you how to be a superhero.  From mega ramp skateboarding to racing batmobiles, this episode will unlock your inner hero. 

It’s not as easy as it looks.  You’ll need to learn how to hitchhike on cars, tackle bad guys and generally kick ass.  But the benefit is, like Sarah Palin, you’ll finally get your own action figure.
Trend Themes
1. Superhero Training - Opportunities for developing training programs that teach people how to be superheroes, including skills like mega ramp skateboarding and hitchhiking on cars.
2. Racing Batmobiles - Innovations in the automotive industry that focus on creating batmobile-style vehicles for racing and adrenaline-fueled experiences.
3. Superhero Sneakers - The rise of footwear brands creating superhero-inspired sneakers that combine style and functionality for superhero enthusiasts.
Industry Implications
1. Training and Education - The training and education industry can capitalize on the trend of superhero training by offering specialized courses and programs for individuals interested in becoming superheroes.
2. Automotive - The automotive industry can tap into the trend of racing batmobiles by developing high-performance vehicles with futuristic designs and technologies.
3. Footwear - The footwear industry can leverage the trend of superhero sneakers by collaborating with superhero franchises to create limited-edition collections that appeal to fans and collectors.
