The year 1987 marked both the release of the movie “Mannequin” and the final season of the children’s program “Today’s Special,” which featured a mannequin that came to life every night and entertained kids. Obviously, both media ventures were marketed to very different demographics, but what if they had decided to cross-promote?

I think I found the answer to that question while shopping yesterday at the Westfield Topanga Mall in Canoga Park. I had already passed this lingerie store’s window display once, but a closer look left me scratching my head.
