For those of you who recall frightening tales of Bat Boy and other mutants and alien spaceships screaming out for attention from grocery check out stations, you are in luck! The Weekly World News who published the now defunct magazine – is back -under the leadership of CEO, Neil McGinness, who just published a new book entitled “Going Mutant.”
This week, Foundation CEO, Samantha Hart, was in the Big Apple and attended a book signing party for “Going Mutant” in the East Village. What’s the connection? McGinniss is a fan of Foundation’s Focus Creeps and enlisted the boys to produce an appropriately “creep-ie” teaser trailer to promote the brand.
The Creeps, Matt Egan and Jordan Grant traveled to Wisconsin, to a spooky nook called the Cave of the Mounds to shoot the Bat Boy in all his battiness. And who is behind that scary mask? I’ll never tell but from the look of the trailer which debuts tomorrow, it could be the real deal!!
Here are some snaps from the party in NYC.
