Guys like superheroes and girls like pop stars, so why not combine the two like Merlito has to form a monster that's appealing to both genders? The 'Avengers of Pop' and 'The Seven Villains of Pop' posters are clever photo manipulations that turn regular chart-toppers into heroines and villainesses in these fictitious movie promos.

Fans of top 40 radio will be no strangers to these Merlito creations, as some of the big names featured in these two posters include Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Beyonce Knowles, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Pink, Jennifer Lopez and Christina Aguilera.

Implications - Consumers enjoy pop culture parodies because they offer consumers a humorous experience, which is a welcomed diversion from everyday stresses. Corporations may consider injecting humor into their promotional campaigns to garner consumer interest.
