2004's Napoleon Dynamite was one of the biggest success stories out of the Sundance Film Festival, launching careers for Jon Heder (Napoleon), Efren Ramirez (Pedro) and writer-director Jared Hess. It's also one of those rare hits that permeated popular culture in a huge way and yet they never produced a sequel… until now…
… kind of.
Heder and Ramirez reunited for a new Burger King campaign tied to the return of their cheesy tots, an amusing reference to the tots-related moment in the film itself. Neither actor looks like they are completely reprising their individual roles — Heder seems reluctant to fully go there — it's like Napoleon grew up and just became your average dude — but those hankering to see Napoleon and Pedro back again talking about the magic that is cheesy tots, this might just be your jam of the week.
