Mexican Sea Monkeys Knock Offs

Uncle Sea Monkey found this on the Mexican E-bay site. It's a Sea Monkey knock off, and McDonalds is involved.

Click Here to view the original listing (for as long as it stays up.)

A Google search turns up several sites referencing both Gluupy's and Sea Monkeys, but the site would seem to be down.

I can't help but wonder if they approached McDonalds about the happy meals and then got rebuffed when McDonalds realized that they were violating a patent.

And now their marketing mock ups are for sale on E-Bay.

It'll be interesting to see if we hear anything more about Gluupy's in the future.
