Shortly after Trailer A debuted on November 17, 1998 and in time for the busy Thanksgiving weekend, the first teaser poster for TPM and similarly rendered banners appeared in multiplex lobbies nationwide.

The image became iconic almost overnight: everyone from Bart Simpson to Dennis the Menace to Weird Al Yankovic has used the imagery. To this day it remains a favorite among fans and movie poster connoisseurs.
