Turns out spinach works even on toys. Headplay Toys made this badass realistic 12″ Popeye the Sailor Man. Well, if you could call a man with arms twice the size of his thighs “realistic.” Limited to 500 units.
Los Angeles’ Hero Complex Gallery presents an artists’ tribute to Popeye, celebrating the 85th year of the spinach-eating sailor. The show features works from over 100 artists and runs 9/5-9/21/2014. Online sales start on 9/6 here.
Jeff Tweedy and the band enlist the help of Popeye, Olive Oyl, Bluto and a can of Wilco spinach for their quirky new animated music video for Dawned on Me. If you don’t like Popeye, it’s still a great song.
