We’re back with a new edition of Wacky Wednesdays and today we’ll be looking at a sticker from the recently-released Wacky Packages All-New Series 10 – 3-Racketeers.
Today marks the second time I’ve covered a 3-Musketeers related Wacky Package for Wacky Wednesdays – the first was for the 1970’s 3-Mosquitoes parody in August of last year.
The 3-Racketeers sticker is one of several bonus stickers from the All-New Series 10 that were released exclusively at Target stores and only within special double-packs. So this one is a bit unusual as it could only be found in those special packs sold at Target.
Let’s take a closer look at it:
The parody takes the 3-Musketeers idea and gives it an edgy Sopranos/Goodfellas transformation. Chocolate whipped becomes pistol whipped, and though the classic 3-Musketeers line “All for one, and one for all!” is not on the original wrapper, it is played upon and given a greedy twist here.
Here’s a look at the version of 3-Musketeers wrapper that 3-Racketeers was based on:
As you can see, the design and look of the original 3-Musketeers wrappers was kept largely in place in the 3-Racketeers Wacky. I think they did a very nice job.
And that’s everything for today’s edition of Wacky Wednesdays.
See you next time!!
