The Glory of Copyright Infringement

I saw this in a dollar store. Yup, an honest to goodness all American, red, white and blue Dollar store. I’m not even sure where to start. First of all, the toy is not even an Indiana Jones style fedora; it’s a plastic cowboy hat. Second, they made no attempt to even disguise the fact that this is CLEARLY Indiana Jones. All the manufacturers did was draw generic Spanish facial hair on Harrison Ford. Worse yet, it looks like the tried to transform his whip into the handle of some sort of fire arm, yet they didn’t air brush out or even try to cover up the fact that the other part of his whip is behind his head. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this; it’s absurd and outrageous. It’s a good thing George Lucas doesn’t know about this, or these guys would be living in card board boxes cleaning up Bantha shit for living.
