After finally getting a chance to get some hands-on time with the new G.I. Joe game (check back for our impressions of the gameplay within the next couple of days), I talked to some of the developers a bit about the franchise's following. Inevitably, the fantastic G.I. Joe PSAs were brought up, and we began talking about the parody videos that accrued million of views across Youtube. Apparently they are bigger fans than you'd think, to the point where they had every voice actor contributing lines to record a "PORKCHOP SANDWICHES!" for use during the game.
Sadly, it was not meant to be. They ran it past Hasbro's legal department, who took issue with the phrase's inclusion and shot it down. They fought the fight, but it just couldn't happen. Apparently there are already some lawsuits going on involving the PSAs, and they didn't want to take a chance to harm their case. Understandable, but regrettable.
In case you're wondering, they were planning on using it like an exclamation. When characters would turn a corner and seen an enemy they might have yelled "PORKCHOP SANDWICHES!", which would have undoubtedly grabbed a smirk from just about anyone playing. Hell, if X-Men 3 got away with throwing in "I'm the Juggernaut, Bitch," there's no reason they shouldn't have been able to get this in.
