In honor of New Year’s Day, when hardly anybody reads this blog, tonight we bring you something you can really get your teeth into, a documentary on the 75th Anniversary of Bazooka Bubble Gum.
It’s not too long and it has Pulitzer-winner Art Spiegelman in it.
The short film is directed by Daniel Brea of the award-winning indie short American Hate and produced by Chris McKee, an award-winning producer of the HBO series, The Black List. And it’s a nice look at the history of the company, which was split in two last year, as they sold off their Topps Trading Card company, and all its trademarks, to Fanatics.
Now they’re just The Bazooka Candy Company, but they’re still sticking with it, and ruining teeth around the world.
