It's amazing what one can find when they clean up their basement. Yesterday, I stumbled upon a very old (empty) can of Pik-Nik fries that featured MegaMan on its packaging. Lo and behold, it was a promotional item I saved back in 2002.
Pik-Nik foods partnered with Capcom back in 2002 to celebrate MegaMan's 15th anniversary, breaking their tradition of a "no promotion" policy. The promotion called for consumers to enter in a sweepstakes to become a "Capcom developer for a day", what became of the winners however, remains unknown (are you one of them?).
In addition, winners were also rewarded a $5,000 scholarship for a school of their choosing (boy, I could use that kind of money right about now). Oh what fun! I miss these little cross promotions.
