    If you remember 90's toy commercials well, then you'll think this thing was done spot on for the ridiculous, energetically frenzied toy ads of that time. Back then, announcers sounded like their life depended on it to sell you this toy, and half the shit the toys interacted with in commercials were items they themselves would never include. Items that some team of small-scale set designers whipped up by using whatever wasn't nailed down at a recycling center, some added in styrene, wild paints you would never use in the practical world, and colored lighting effects that would make a 90's underground dance club seem tame. The play setting itself had become a selling tool and a non-stop generator of imagination and creativity. How many times do you recall seeing an action figure getting hit with a missile and falling into a giant vat of green "toxic" ooze (not included) or having a vehicle plow through some foam blocks (sold separately), ramming into the bad guys full-speed? These were those times, times when the environment itself was an accessory, common household objects became deathtraps, and toy advertisers ramped up children's imaginations to levels beyond those of hyped up ravers on a sweet mixture of PCP and ecstasy. These my friend, were the toy commercials of the 90's.

    It's kind of Transformers/super robot-related. Watch it to the end to see what I mean. It just gets more and more ridiculously funny.

    Seen it before, like a year ago so it's old news, but I still get a kick out of it every time I watch it. Awesomeness!

    edit: Just to let you know...this has now become a You Tube favorite here at the Star-Spangled Banner Flag House.
    We'll be giggling all day.
