tmnt making of coming out of their shells

youtube

as a child, i owned a VHS tape called “TMNT - The Making of the Coming Out Of Their Shells tour”. it’s about thirty minutes long, and it sticks with me to this day, because it’s such an incredible, bizarre representation of what brand management and franchising and marketing was getting up to and into in the 90s, with a level of ludicrousness that’s just hard to really wrap your head around until you actually watch it. i never got to actually see the tour in person myself. i don’t know how or why i ended up owning that tape, only that i watched it at least a dozen times as a kid.
