Omni Consumer Products, founded in 2006 by graphic designer Pete Hottelet, is a company that creates "real-world" versions of certain products created in movies.[1] The company takes its name from the fictional corporation of the same name featured in the RoboCop movie and television franchise.[1] The company's products include a "Brawndo" beverage inspired by Idiocracy, "Stay Puft Caffeinated Gourmet Marshmallows" inspired by Ghostbusters, and a "Tru Blood" beverage inspired by HBO's True Blood series.[2] The company also has licensed the rights to produce and market "Sex Panther", a Eau de Cologne in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. For a few months in 2009, Omni Consumer Products was a sponsor of Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier's podcast, SModcast.

The company contributed $25,000 towards the construction of a RoboCop statue in Detroit.[3]
