The odd couple here is Ben Franklin and the Frankenstein Monster. Actually this really isn't such an odd pairing when one examines the elements that tie them together. of course Electricity and Lightning Bolts are the key (pun intended)! Then there are their names which both include Frank, hence the design title.

The year is 1988. The streets are running red with squashed ketchup sachets from McDonalds (and some blood as well). A ruthless drug lord known only as 'Mr Big' (aka Joe Pesci) is winning over the hearts and minds of impressionable kids in his greatest role since Tommy DeVito in Goodfellas. It seems as if the entire world is teetering on the edge of collapse... But then, seemingly out of nowhere, a "giant mecha-robot man" (see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twjUr4aB2zo) appears to save the day, before turning into a jet and flying away, only to return in the form of Christopher Walken wearing a white fedora and zoot suit. He then proceeded to sing a Beatles song, before disappearing, never to return again. Until now... Using the advanced computer-technology known as 'the mouse', we have been able to recreate the likeness of the fedora-wearing, relaxed Jheri curl rocking Christopher Walken for your wearing pleasure. Ladies and gentlemen, I giveth you MOONWALKEN!

The Philadelphia 76ers have the bravest fans in the league. This was never more true than during the first game of the new season when one stood up to Russell Westbrook, who did nothing wrong. But that is neither here nor there. BEN FRANKLIN ALTERNATE.
