Kwik-E-Mart comes alive

A dozen 7-11 stores, including one in Chicago, turned into the fictional convenience stores of "The Simpsons" fame this weekend.

The Kwik-E-Marts, along with the 6,000 other Seven-Elevens around North America will sell Simpsons-themed treats during the month-long promotion. Among them: Buzz Cola, Krusty-O's cereal and Squishees, the slushy Slurpees knockoff.

It's all part of a campaign to hype next month's opening of "The Simpsons Movie" based on the long-running cartoon show.

The cartoon loves to lampoon convenience stores for their unhealthy snacks.

Advertising officials with 7-11 say the promotion shows they get the cartoon's joke.

The Kwik-E-Marts will be covered in industrial foam and given new signs to replicate the animated look of the fictional stores.

People are saying that the reason they aren't selling Duff is because the movie is PG-13 and they want to keep it family friendly. To see the other 7-11's that are doing this click here Thanks threefourtime
