It’s hard to think of an improved person to close out [email protected]’s Saturday night celebrations. Kevin Smith appeared remotely and talked Son-In-Lockdown, unmasked a new Funko Pop, and dropped the very first look at his new movie Killroy Was Here. Plus, Smith chatted about a brand new podcast that he created with his daughter, Harley Quinn Smith, and unveiled how to get your personal Mooby’s Cow Tipper. All in all, it absolutely was a great follow-up to his Bill & Ted Face the Music panel from earlier in the day.
Kevin Smith is a huge San Diego Comic-Con fixture for decades now. He comes to promote, work, and in addition be a fanboy. So in 2010 was somewhat different, but Smith was still able to work and promote, while hopefully getting some exciting news. As for exciting news of his own, the director recently revealed he will be celebrating his birthday, August 3rd, with a particular Jay and Silent Bob Reboot screening followed by a Q&A at the Paramount Drive-In Theaters. All proceeds from the event will benefit the LA Food Bank.
In addition, it has been announced that the Mooby’s pop-up at the function is going national. The pop-up restaurant, which originally opened in April in Los Angeles, is dependant on the fictional fast-food chain from Dogma, Clerks II, and others. The Mooby’s pop-up is now obtainable in select cities across the United States with delivery kits from Gold Belly. So, fans who have been enticed by the chocolate covered pretzels and the over the top Mooby’s Cow Tipper, you will soon be able to get your hands on them, though you may proceed with caution on those pretzels.
The Mooby’s pop-up was so successful which they ended up running out of food, which also includes the Mooby’s Messy Lasagna Sandwich-also available vegan-served with a side of Hater Totz. The Mooby’s idea was from the team behind the Saved by the Bell-inspired Saved by the Max and last year’s Good Burger pop-up, so Smith knew it was in good hands. Additionally, all the proceeds went to No Us Without You, “an organization that helps feed undocumented restaurant and bar workers who’ve been hit by the recent wave of under and unemployment.”
Kevin Smith remains out there entertaining fans and making a huge difference in the world together with his usual style. While this year’s [email protected] has been a bit weird, it will always be nice to see Kevin Smith speak about the things that he loves, and there are a lot of them, including Bill & Ted Face the Music, that may now open in theaters in September while landing on VOD at the same time. 2020 has given the world lots of free time and Smith is using his to bring some positivity into the world, which is desperately needed at this time.
