I'm always entertained to see goofy, unrelated things inexplicably branded with something I like. Such is the case with the new Norton Internet Security, which has Snake Eyes on it, and is being likened to the GI Joe team. I found this over at Topless Robot.
From Buy.com's product description:
Norton and G.I. Joe Team Up
G.I. Joes secret team of highly trained experts is organized to defend humankind against global domination whenever and wherever theres a mission. As part of the teams special ops, the Joes always know about the evil doings of the Cobra organization before it takes over the world.
Likewise, Norton is always working to detect emerging threats before they take over your computer. Nortons speed and strength is a smart and ready defense that goes unnoticed but is incredibly effective when it makes a preemptive move.
Together, Norton and G.I. Joe will strike first before online evils do.
Oh, but it gets better. Norton is having a sweepstakes, which you can enter here.
So it appears that they've fully integrated Norton with the GI Joe image. They have a comparison page that likens GI Joe to Norton Security, character by character. My favorite bit:
Like Snake Eyes, Norton Internet Security 2009 nimbly anticipates malware's next moves, proactively blocking threats to stop online identity theft, viruses, spyware and other enemy threats dead in their tracks.
Because that's exactly what Snake Eyes does.

Yeah that was especially tacky and pointless product placement when Rex decided to scan the nanobot development computer before downloading any information, obviously more bothered about getting viruses on his memory stick than that a brace of F-16s was about to flatten the place.
Perhaps if he'd not bothered he wouldn't have been partially blown up and the whole movie could have been about something else...

They slap Snake Eyes on that, but I have yet to see any adult sized Underroos. I have got to find some bigger ones. The ones I'm wearing right now are so tight that they have made me sterile. Hasbro has no idea of what adult collectors want.
I love Joes. They are delicious.
