Bud Light Human Fishing

Thanks for this one, Zai Redwinters! So, get ready for this ad: tons of people grabbing Bud Light bottles floating around.. only to be yanked away!

Two guys out on a boat, first, one guy’s friend gets lost.  Then another girl grabs a hanging Bud Light while on a park bench, and is yanked away from her boyfriend. (<3)  A guy on the street, a man in his office, a man through his chimney, a man from his front lawn… And one guy in a white collar is held up as a trophy by the alien!


Hard to find other alts for this.. :X <3

Rice Krispie Treats - “I want One!” Got a craving? - Girl (Gym)

So, this ad is related to the previous Rice Krispie Treats ad campaign; kids freaking out because they want a Rice Krispie Treat, but don’t have one and are teased by another’s enjoyment.

In this case, the girl flashes back to 5 minutes ago, where she was enjoying this delicious treat in Gym. When she finally comes to, she gets ‘animated’ about her desire.

After realizing that the treat was only in her memory, her face turns into a claymation caricature of her old one, but then the camera is above her, seeing her crazy face get larger and more monstrous, her eyes springing out of her monster head.

FYI, though, at the tagline “Got a Craving?” the girl suffers the eye-spring claymation again.  Kinda cool, def worth a look.  Done by Robin Willis at the Bent Image Lab, but they got no trace of this now.

Couldn’t find any alts, kids :( <3

Rice Krispie Treats - Remember to Share (1996) - Boy claymation freakout

Much thanks to ThatGuyWithTheVHS (ads) (who has a lead request, take a peek) for posting his original HQ copy.

So, this ad features one boy pretty much making food porn out of his Rice Krispie Treat snack. His friend goes insane, by the climax of the ad being unable to contain himself.

If you take a peek, first he morphs into some Shrek-look alike, gets a crazy gigantic grin, and the camera changes to above the pair.  The friend’s face grows in size to fill the frame, now a grinning red monster with big blue lips; the eyes bulge out, tongue lashes around..

And his friend offers him his own. No harm, no foul, eh?

At the very end, though, with the tagline “Got a craving?” the friend’s eyes claymation wildtake/bug out again.

There was one other in this series featuring a girl.

This was done by Bent Image Lab’s old director Robin Willis.


Thanks, ThatGuyWithTheVHS! B)

Ratchet & Clank - Sheepinator ( Backyard)

So, in this ad, kids are about to transform a cat into a sheep.. using the gun from the game.. until the cat jumps down and the parents come back.


I can’t find it on, though. Hm…

Ratchet & Clank - Morph-O-Ray - Chicken Poof

Another one WhatIReallyLIke (and MonsterMaster13 ) have recommended to me— in this ad, friends turn their friend into a chicken.  Kinda weird afterwards, when they’re all running around, chasing their ex-friend. One guy’s like, “We can change him back, right?”  Haha… 


PS2 “I Am the Wolfman” - 2D cutout rearranged to wolf-parts

So, a notable mention from MonsterMaster13; I’d say to note the mood; a bit zany and nightmarish.  So, that’s kind a cool if you want something more surreal!  Basically, a mad scientist imagines how his life’d be if he were a “Man-dog”.. pretty intense. hm..

So he rides a rocket elsewhere, terrorizes prey.. etc.  I bet you can guess why this’s in 2D instead of hardcore 1st person, right? :P <3

Also, this was done by Tim Hope.  (We’ll remember you, broseph)

Alts: (Full ver, thanks MM13!)

Hi-C 1999 - Full Throttle Taste - Jet Kids

Starting at 8:35 in the attached video! (Thanks, MonsterMaster13! I haven’t found any other easy access copies of this..)

So, in this ad, a flying boy needs to land. Because he’s basically a jet with a colored jetstream behind him.  He lands, and they refuel him with Hi-C.. before he returns to the sky with the other kids in their jet formation.

But not before flying everywhere and shocking the people in the flight tower and so on :)  THey get all shocked, so I imagine they’re a bit intimidated by the attitude of these jet kids.

Hard to find alts, anybody able to help?

Fruit Roll-Ups: Stretchy Faces -1999

Thanks to MonsterMaster13 for this!  … You don’t remember? You sent it to me in 2012!

(Guys, I promise. When I started, I didn’t imagine I’d have such a busy life, haha. B) 

So, in this ad, this kid (Steve) walks around the Fruit Roll-upS factory saying hi to two coworkers.. The first, Shawn, has a really tall-stretched face.. and kinda greets him creepily. (Shawn, you know you’re stretched out. Don’t play dumb!)  The next coworker, peering over blueprints, answers Steve’s concerns about Shawn as if they’re nothing. Because her face is also stretched wide, too. :O

Pretty cool, though I wish they stuck more to the older mascot… >u> <— selfish, I guess

Alts: (at the beginning)

Milky Way Crispy Rolls (1994) - Magic Ride

So, in this ad, two kids are having fun at a fair, while a mom manages to get MIlk from a nearby farm/cow/milk can… Whatever.  IT joins them at the festival, and the twins cause mischief by using the magical effects of the star to make two placards (what are these? They look like movie shoot things) fly and be hovering surfboards for them.  So, they fly around the fair.  YMMV, really.

Dextro Energen (1995) - Stress, Head Effects

So, this guy’s so stressed at his job that two bullet trains fly through the air into his ears, and behind his pupils inside his eyeballs… Eyes widening, and such. So, his head explodes. AHHH.  Then when it reforms, it morphs into a gauge/meter showing how his energy levels are drifting into the red.

So, he takes Dextro, and the meter shows back up and points back in the other direction! :D  ANd he’s good!  Until he sees a coworker suffering the same thing, and mid-Subway-entry into the coworker’s brain, he tosses Dextro to him.

I’d say YMMV, but this makes the morphing front-and-center importance. :)
