McDonalds - Tiger Action Toys (May 2001) - “Jaw Dropping”

I think I need this as a tag. “Jaw Dropping”.. Much thanks to ThatGuyWithTheVHS for posting this!

Basically, after the segment with Ronald McDonald, two kids are playing with toys named “Shelby” from Tiger electronics… Hm.. But I guess it’s so cool, the boy’s jaw drops, and he even has to pick it up

Anything that legitimizes that a “TF Happened” is cool in my book.  Can’t find any other copies.

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.

Cheetos Mega - Inflated Bully

Wow, I don’t know what to say here besides awesome. Thanks for the link, Anon!

In this ad, there’s a love interest established between our hero boy and a red-haired girl.  Then a bully comes in and makes him feel lame, I guess.

So when the bully’s about to jump off the highest diving board, Chester Cheetah has an idea with Cheetos Mega— the boy holds it up so he can see both it and the bully and with one flick of his wrist..

The bully inflates in a quick bulge, drops down to the water, and is helpless. Everybody’s laughing.

Well, now I understand the shame joy in some of these kinks.. Anyways!  Def. pretty cool. Here’s some info from Anima Istanbul’s Vimeo:

DirecTV - Play - Marionette Son

Another in this DirecTV marionette series. Again, thanks for the info on this, Anon! :D

Basically, his clumsy son is also insecure about the wire complaints the dad sent his wife.  So, while honestly approving/validating him (? Placating?)  While walking away, his son’s swept up by something— the fan! And he’s spinning around.  His dad’s all cooing at him, “Look! You’re flying! I can’t fly.”  His son is busy enjoying himself, so I guess it’s more fun than it lets on.

Connected to the other ad in the series; check this tumblr for DirecTV.

Anonymous said: Hey, TGWTVHS here. I'm looking for a complete version on a "Tales From The Darkside" commercial from... 1988? It has a kid's head transforming onto several different movie monsters, and was done in claymation. I found a complete SHORTER version, but I'm looking for the longer one. Both are on youtube. Any chance you can help out? -TGWTVHS

Yeah, this’s hard to find. The best I got are the two things you likely found already; a 20s version starting at the Vampire head (partial), or the short version which has everything (?) sped up (alt).

Sigh, sigh.  Definitely posting a lead here. Anybody else spot the promo for this ad?  See the partial versions above! B)

Marking this for a lead; Basically, a guy in a graveyard has all the monster faces one after another; no change back in between.

EDIT:

Oh! and I updated this Spaghetti-Os ad with the high quality copy you posted! Thanks again, ThatGuyWithTheVHS B) <3

Irn-Bru Cut Out (“Summer Phenomenal”) - Magical Photo Op

Wow, major thanks, Anon. Definitely a new favorite for me.

So, basically, a couple (boy and girl) put their faces through this street sign, only to see that there’s an IRN-BRU on the other side for the characters to drink.

And that’s where the competition begins.  For most of it, the girl is in the lead, chasing away from the boy.  She ends up at a concert and leaps onto it, and her character even begins taking off her bra..  Or using her rain boots to slide down a muddy hill, spreading a wake of mud on her boy’s character..   Only to be done in by a cloud of bees.

So, the boy wins, runs back, and she’s already laying back, preparing a seat for him.. He takes a seat, and falls down a pitfall she hid!  So, she’s laying back and enjoying the drink..

… and as we come back to reality, we see only her face poking through the sign… 

That last detail’s kinda eerie, but I imagine ads (using only actors) live in this world of pseudo-consent…  (Ads don’t intend to piss us off, I figure.)  I wonder if they’re forced into living out the situation. :)

Anyways, def. worth a look. Here’s the info and alts!

Frozz - Kumis - Sentient/Prehensile Hair

So, in this ad, a guy with dreds feeds some Frozz to his friend.  Half of the dude’s mustache grows super long, and he whips it out to take one of the Frozz packs from his friend, and the mustache feeds him some.

Hm… Kinda cool.

Nissan 2014 Altima - Zero Gravity - People Floating

Found on the FloatsYourBoat Yahoo Group (Thanks!);

Basically, this girl begins floating after getting out of her Altima… And then her friend does, too.

Colgate Vitamin C - Bursting? Mind-Blowing? Gusher of Lemon Juice, exploding slices of a lemon bomb, and a vortex of lemon and lime

OK, So, they redid ad #2’s effects for a different product. Hm. I’m OK with that, I guess. B) <3  HQ Download from ManyMany.asia ‘s vimeo copy!

So, look at the previous #2 in this series, but have the following effects instead:

A gusher of lemon and lime juice erupts from her neck, then a lemon has a fuse of its vine burn down, exploding the lemon into slices of lemon lime at the viewer… before finally becoming a vortex of water swirling around, with lemon and lime slices filling up the bathroom and the frame in a pattern. (Damn, less surreal of, “Bathroom got filled with these”).

But pretty badass.  Hard to find an alt..

Note, in this version, she doesn’t cross her arms and ‘chill’, and the bathroom also gets destroyed.. X3
