In the HBO v. Starz marketing showdown between epic, old-timey fantasy series there is an interesting duplicate effort in terms of using food trucks as a promotional tool.
In one corner we have HBO's Game of Thrones with a food truck featuring meals created by celebrity chef Tom Colicchio.
In the other corner we have Starz' Camelot with a "traveling dining hall' featuring free turkey legs.
FREE TURKEY LEGS!!!!!!!!
The weather in NYC is shit today so it's unlikely I will be trying the food at either but regardless of my enthusiasm for smoked poultry, the HBO option clearly wins.
I will still absolutely watch both shows.
Has anyone had a chance to check these out?
