Greetings Program

Master Control Program Moses

“I desire macaroni pictures.”

TRON is my favorite movie of all time. Though the film virtually bombed at the box office in 1982, it has since gained cult following status. Every once in awhile, a direct reference to the classic pops up. For example: Homer 3D, Tony Hawk’s “I am Sci-FI” promo, Family Guy, and in South Park when Moses is portrayed as the Master Control Program.

TRON Honda Civic

The latest homage comes in the form of a Honda Civic commercial. This one is particularly nice as it captures the essence of the original, much more so than anything else I’ve seen. Special thanks to Tron-Sector for the find.

End of line.

One thought on “Greetings Program

  1. I love this movie. I always have. A couple of months ago, I watched it with my boss’s kids. They are 6, 7, and 9. They liked the movie, but they gave me massive crap for the ‘bad special effects’. When I stressed that the movie was 24 years old, I was ignored :P

    In other news, I am disturbed about the age-targeted marketing techniques that are pointed at me now. I know that’s the norm, but I find it irritating. Like they’re dumbing me down and suckering me in because I liked a certain genre of music or movie. Have you seen the car commercial with Slash playing in it? Good grief.
