Toxie Opens the Stock Exchange?

Yes, you heard that right; your favorite b-movie mutant and mine, Toxie, rung the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange Monday morning!

From the press release:

"August 31, 2009 (New York, NY) – On the morning of August 31, Lloyd Kaufman’s iconic monster superhero the Toxic Avenger rang the bell at the New York Stock Exchange. This momentous occasion was broadcast live on Fox News and CNBC."

There is actually video available at the NYSE website, but unfortunately no embedding. From a closer look, it appears to actually be the cast of "The Toxic Avenger: The Musical" now making the rounds (and hits) on off broadway!

Regardless, Toxic Avenger and NYSE were two names I certainly didn't expect to see together in today's headlines!

For more info on the musical, be sure to check out the official website!
