Funko is bringing two icons from the Cool Runnings movie to life. Santa Coffe and Irving “Irv” Blitzer are the two new additions to the Funko Movie line. The Jamaican Bobsleigh team is here, from the hilarious and heart-breaking Cool Runnings 1993 movie!
“Feel the Rhythm! Feel the Rhyme! Get on up, it’s bobsled time! Cool Runnings! ”
Cool Runnings has become a cult classic and is loosely based on the 1988 debut of the Jamaican bobsled team at the Winter Olympic Games in Calgary, Canada. Doug E. Doug plays Sanka Coffie, a championship pushcart driver, and Irving “Irv” Blitzer, played by John Candy, is a double gold medalist at the 1968 Winter Olympic.
The movie Cool Runnings introduced, in a funny way, a sport still little known in the world. The film presents the difficult mission of forming a bobsled team from scratch, with athletes who knew nothing about the sport, much less stepped in the snow.
