The Time Has Come: Avatarize Yourself

by Alex Gerage

As if Happy Meals weren’t enough, McDonald’s is now offering the chance for internet users to “avatarize” themselves. Simply upload a picture from your computer or Facebook page, follow a few steps in the program, and you’ll see what you’d look like if you were blue and lived on Pandora. The program is very much like the “Zombify Yourself” promotion that was released in October to promote Zombieland. I suggest giving it a shot, especially if you enjoyed Avatar. You can check out mine below. 




Normally, I would argue that this viral is a little late to the party. After all, Avatar has been out for almost four weeks. But as we’ve seen, Avatar is no ordinary film. It seems poised to become one of the biggest films of all time, and has positioned itself to be a major player during awards season. In other words, Avatar is still very much in the cultural consciousness, so promotions like these are likely to remain relevant.    


Did you avatarize yourself?  Link to your picture in the comments section!
