BOOM…err

‘Andre the Giant Has a Posse’ is a street art and viral marketing campaign based on a design by A created in 1989. But apparently ‘Andre the Giant’ was trademarked. So A,fearful of a lawsuit decided to use the slogan B for his design which was inspired by the movie C, a cult classic sci-fi film by John Carpenter from the previous year. In it, the protagonist discovers that the world is actually run by aliens hiding in plain sight, but can only be seen through special sunglasses. This ended up in making it even more iconic.
This film also had a certain dialogue which was spoken by that manliest of men hero of the eponymous tetrology of video games. It tends to send mooks clamouring for a certain confectionery.

Give me A,B,C, the dialogue and the video game franchise.

    • The game franchise has the same name as the protagonist… Its Duke Nukem. The line is “It’s time to kick ass and chew bubble gum, and I’m all out of gum”. It appeared in the movie as “I have come to chew bubble gum and kick ass and I’m all out of bubble gum.”. Hence the title of the post. You may now cringe.
      Everything else is correct. Good crack.
