    Thanks for sharing! Really a great idea and fits perfectly with introducing the new characters!

    Hopefully we'll see more of them!

    You can tell right off that these are fake because the poster actually wrote out a cohesive description for the video, for once.

[But I'm pretty good with the information, if I do say so myself. And you can hit me all you want with Walt Disney World.])

    Well, Pixar hasn't converted me to a Lots o Huggin Bear, yet. BUT, I did notice that "MrCrazycommercials" has a total of 14 other videos. I wonder if all those others are real, or not. One is a Strawberry Shortcake commercial that looks pretty real, But look at this one.

    And HIS Commentary is even funnier than the commercial:

    Get it "Purr" tenders because they are cats. Apparently people in the 80's hated cats so much that they had to pretend to be other animals... and why wouldn't the toy makers just create animals that kids did want... Further more these are not very good disguises and these cats are horrendously ugly no argument that they do need masks.

    MrCrazycommercials April 05, 2010 That kid doesn't need anymore cookies...

    MrCrazycommercials April 05, 2010 The Inchworm was a totally legitimate way for kids to get around. You were cruising in style if you had an inchworm... just don't get on it after a full lunch.

    MrCrazycommercials April 01, 2010 My mother never made bacon, but for some reason I remember her coming home with this Sizzlean bacon once... I don't know maybe the idea of having a magic spatula that levitated fake bacon got to her... But I digress. So it looked terrible and none of us wanted to eat it and my mother got all huffy and I remember us all having a bite simultaneously and instantly gaging. Thanks Sizzlean...

    MrCrazycommercials March 30, 2010 This commercial reminds me of a trailer for a Hitchcock movie

    MrCrazycommercials March 30, 2010 Do you remember this? This was a very practical toy. Part plush, part flashlight... before the glow worm kids would have to go to bed with both and that could get cumbersome.

    here's another comment on another commercial

    Not just fairies but star fairies and even thou they have wings they seem to need to fly around on a Pegasus... Don't get me wrong that's cool, but wow them some lazy Fairies...

    Wait a minute... so is the commercial real or not?
    I mean when I saw it, I was amazed at how accurate Lotso from TS3 looks to the commercial.
    Seriously if it's fake, genius marketing campaign haha.

    EDIT: Wow so apparently it is indeed fake.
    Well-played, Pixar... Well-played.

    Loved it! I thought the 80's feel to the video was real clever. Great other shares, Aladdin!
