?Hello. The name assigned to me is Kelly. The year is 2048. After recharging myself for one hour, plugged into my futuristic human recharger (sleep became obsolete in 2035) I am ready to share some news with you. Let it be known that I am not even writing this article. I am thinking words in my head and Siri is reading my mind, crafting sentences at lighting speed, and posting it on the internet for you guys to read. Think back to 2018, when this all started? Do you remember how it all started? ?
2018, Present Day. Donald Trump is president and everyone’s fighting over whether a voice recording says Yanny or Laurel. And soon, you can buy products based on the craziest show we’ve ever seen.
Endemol Shine Group will partner with product manufacturers for everyone’s fav mind-bending anthology series, Black Mirror. In other words, Black Mirror merch will soon be available IRL.
The show is produced by House of Tomorrow, which is part of Endemol Shine Group. Endemol’s commercial teams will supercharge off-air opportunities for the brand across a broad range of categories.
“Given the number of things in Black Mirror that come true, we thought we may as well release them ourselves and cut out the middle man. We look forward to wind-up killer robot dogs and digital torture chambers. That or a branded keyring,” House of Tomorrow’s Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones said in a press release.
Killer robot dogs? Digital torture chambers? Sign me up! Fingers crossed for a “monkey loves you” plush.
Three seasons of Black Mirror are now streaming on Netflix. Watch one at a time and cleanse your soul with some sunshine after each episode. We can’t to see how these dope licensing opportunities will infiltrate into the real world. We’re only scared a little bit.
