    In this article, Popon.net will shine the spotlight on a very neat beverage cooler that was spotted at a local supermarket. Complete with mask and cape, this display featured a dimensional Batman figure that appeared to be popping up and out of a cooler filled with refreshing Mountain Dew products. The entire cooler was wrapped with a graphic showcasing the Mountain Dew logo and a web link to the Batman microsite. Sporting wheels for mobility, the display was easily moved to specific merchandising areas within the store.
