It's a remote-controlled helicopter that also makes a farting noise, like a flying whoopee cushion. The infomercial is hosted by a young, fast-talking, super-enthused kid who shows all the hilarious ways fartcopter can be used to make your friends laugh. Oh, and also if you switch fartcopter to DRONE mode, it becomes a military-grade killing machine. Kids love that too!
The Cinco Family/Corporation is a fictional corporation which spans the television and internet works of comedian Bob Odenkirk. From 2007 to 2010, the comedy television program Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, served as an outlet for Cinco Products skits.
Carried over from Tom Goes to the Mayor and online material available only on BobandDavid.com, the Cinco Family/Corporation parodies the typical "soulless corporation". A similar corporation called Globo-Chem appears in Odenkirk's Mr. Show.
Companies owned by the Cinco Family include Cinco Dairy, Cinco Sweets, Cinco Home Entertainment, Cinco Banking, Cinco Insurance, Cinco Styles, Cinco Chemicals and Toy Division, Cinco Games, and other canon and non-canon subsidiaries. The commercials and infomercials use green screen and special effects with the intent of mimicking the standard format of infomercials from the late 1980s and early 1990s, often lampooning technology from the same era (such as the Cinco MIDI Organizer). Generally, the goods and services sold by Cinco companies are a bizarre assortment of useless, pointless and/or physically harmful products, at least three of which require the removal of all of the user's teeth.
King Star King was originally an Adult Swim pilot created by JJ Villard and developed by Tommy Blacha that premiered along with five other pilots as part of the Adult Swim Pilots contest on adultswim.com. The series has since been green lit by Adult Swim and will premiere sometime in 2014.
The pilot aired on Adult Swim's Toonami block during the extra hour added by Daylights Savings on November 2, 2013.
King Star King features a punk rock, modern day he-man who falls from the realm of the gods to land as a fry cook in a slummy waffle joint. King Star King must regain his memory to defeat the evil (and adorable) Spring Bunny and rescue his love, the megababe Princess Snow White. Only then will King Star King regain his rightful place in the heavens.
Mike Judge moderates a panel with the tender souls behind Superjail! (Christy Karacas), King Star King (JJ Villard and Tommy Blacha) and Mr. Pickles (Will Carsola and Dave Stewart).
