Glen's "Southern Nights" to rock out from limited edition bags of Doritos!
Nooooo, I am not making this up!
In fact, the entire official soundtrack from the film, "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2", will be available to PLAY on specially-designed Doritos bags incorporating cassette players.

Read about this unique marketing campaign by Doritos and Marvel Studios (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 film):

Doritos & Marvel Partner for 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' Promotion: Exclusive
Billboard

Listen to the 'Guardians 2' soundtrack using this bag of Doritos
Techspot
:arrow: http://www.techspot.com/news/69092-list ... ritos.html

You won't be able to purchase this limited edition Doritos bag from your grocery store.
"The custom bags will be available for consumer purchase on April 28 via Amazon.com/Doritos while supplies last."

Sounds a bit "cheesy" to me. :roll:

P.S. to Cowpoke / Wikipedia editors

The first "Guardians of the Galaxy" soundtrack spent two weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and was the tenth largest selling album of 2014 (543,000 sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan).

I'll bet Vol. 2 will chart, and it may be the most unusual charting compilation album listed in Glen's discography! But will you have to list the Doritos bag, too? lol

I caught some of Convoy the other day, and it was the part where you can hear Southern nights in the background during an evening rest for the drivers of the convoy trucks.
Dee, you will of course know it starred Kris Kristofferson as the rubber duck. I bought the album at the time and of course went to see the movie to hear Glen.

Ha how cool! I loved the first movie. I am certainly going to see this new one!
Wikipedia: I would add the compilation if it charts.

Glen Campbell's "Southern Nights" is introduced to a new genre of fans in 2017.
"Southern Nights" is one of the tracks on a new superhero film, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, based on the Marvel Comics superhero team Guardians of the Galaxy, produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. It is the sequel to 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy and the fifteenth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film is written and directed by James Gunn and stars an ensemble cast featuring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, Sean Gunn, Sylvester Stallone, and Kurt Russell. In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the Guardians travel throughout the cosmos as they help Peter Quill learn more about his true parentage. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 premiered in Tokyo on April 10, 2017 and is scheduled to be released in the United States on May 5, 2017, in 3D and IMAX 3D. (Source: Wikipedia)

"Southern Nights," Glen Campbell's groovy 1977 version of Allen Toussaint's song was a childhood favorite for Gunn: "It's a little bit of a different flavor for the movie."

From the film's playlist on YouTube:



:?: Glen Campbell discographers: would this compilation soundtrack be a legit addition to Glen's discography?

Remember this prior post under "Glen Campbell on YouTube and Other Video Sites"?
ORIGINAL POST & VIDEO FROM THE DONNY & MARIE SHOW :arrow: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=29&p=5297&hilit=finger#p5297

NOW UP FOR AUCTION! Description and photos below!

Glen's purple and maroon rhinestone outfit custom-created for this Donny & Marie show is now up for auction along with other celeb's entertainment memorabilia:

A Glen Campbell rhinestone outfit from The Donny and Marie Show
A purple and maroon jumpsuit lavishly decorated with rhinestones, diamond-shaped patches, and rhinestone fringe in a western style, culminating in maroon velvet bell-bottom trim and silver tassels, bearing an interior tag inscribed,"Cotroneo Costume / Hollywood / Mr. Campbell Glen / EC 2 / Size 40," and "EC 2" handwritten in black marker on the inside back. Accompanied by a pair of matching arm cuffs, matching belt, a red rhinestone-studded scarf (not original to the costume), and the original rhinestone-decorated sunglasses. Campbell wore this creation when he appeared on ABC's The Donny and Marie Show, which aired on October 21, 1977. Just off the enormous success of his song, "Rhinestone Cowboy" a couple of years prior, Campbell showed off his comedic chops in a spoof which combined his hit song with the James Bond thriller, Goldfinger, called "Rhinestonefinger." At the time, Donny and Marie were in their teens and were the youngest performers in television history to host their own show. Glen Campbell was a regular on many television programs during the 1970s variety show craze."

I wonder who is in the Glen Campbell Family Quartet?

Sellers, 49, is now board president for Alzheimer's Arkansas and will be one of three people honored at the organization's fifth annual Champions Gala!, to be held Thursday at the Little Rock Marriott. The fundraising event is designed to show some love for Arkansas caregivers who tend to those with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. Also to be honored are Patricia Rose Carlton (whose name has inspired a rose motif to run throughout the program) and Michelle Byler. The event will include a VIP reception, silent and live auctions, entertainment by the Glen Campbell Family Quartet and a special reading by former caregiver Karen Hayes.
