Anonymous said: so there s a add where the classroom is in black and white then one kid opens a box then everything is in color even the teacher but she has turned young if you could if this ad let me know.

It doesn’t sound familiar; Do you have a time period when you saw it?  How recent is this?  I haven’t watched TV lately, so I’m really behind on this. ‘n’;; You guys watching TV could help me out a lot!

Are you in the USA? If you got any other details, that can help! :)

(I mean, is it candy? Food? Paint? Lunchbags?  What kind of bag? :)

ideasofmrriley said: watch?v=xsgoGkgjIyQ - YMMV on this one, but here's an ad featuring flattening. Sadly, the women who deflate here are out of focus. Maybe there's a longer one out there, or an alternate ad with female focus (which, IMO, should always be done with campaigns featuring weird stuff happening to men), I don't know.

This one is pretty nice! The fact everybody’s deflating is appealing to me, too. 

Seeing if I can find one with female focus/alt while I’m queueing this one. :3

PS: Thank you for putting this in during the long hiatus!

zairedwinters said: Here's a new lead though I'm grasping at straws here. I know ~nothing~ about the commercial beyond the premise. I don't know when it aired or what product it was for but I clearly remember seeing it aired. It had a large, upright CGI fish on a dock catching a small wriggling man, (real, BUT with exaggerated fish-like flopping SFX applied to him). The fish poses for cameras with his catch in hand (fin?). In the last few seconds of the commercial the human is thrown back in the water. Any ideas?

I remember seeing this exact one, and the one you sent me was one I didn’t know existed.. Part of a series, maybe, too?

But also to note: I can’t find that one anymore.

This is a lead.

I need y’all to read the above “ask” and the other previous postand let me know if you’ve seen an ad that’s the above, but isn’t the one linked HERE. (to be replaced with WWTA link)

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.


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

warnershane said: I remember this one commercial. It was advertising some sort of protein bar. It basically showed a few women at a baby shower. One of the women in said shower offered the pregnant woman some cake, to which the pregnant woman declined, instead sticking to eating said bar. Then, without warning, the face of the woman who offered the cake went all demonic and scary. If anyone has seen this commercial, or knows the name of the bar being advertised, I would be really grateful. Thanks.

Googled it a little, nothing so far..

I’ll put it out here. Anybody else have info on it?  I think I recall what you mean— that face was supposed to be the pregnant lady (or other heros) refusing some sugar addiction/politeness demon thing… I think.


So, the ad’s called “Pachinko”, which means it could be really interesting if we find it.

Kino Smile Mint.

Anonymous said: I remember there was a McDonald's ad back in 2002 for their Pinocchio toys. The little girl pushed her Pinocchio toy's nose which led to her dad's nose growing. Or there was one from the UK for a DVD company where the mom asked the kids where all the DVDs came from, and the dad's nose grew for some reason. Would be totally awesome if you could help me find these. I've had zero Lu k so far. Thanks!

That sounds really badass. Tagging this as a lead! And, googling now!

Anonymous said: Hi there, I found that you post a clorets´s commercial some time ago where a man gets a onion head. I am looking for another one that has the same premise, but is in a concert.

Anonymous said: Hey, Anon here. Love the work you do. I was just wondering if you knew anything about a commercial(may have been an insurance commercial, but can't be certain) where a woman was flattened by a steamroller, similar to the Indian Mint Elevator Ad. I remember seeing it a long time ago but so far haven't been able to find it. That's all. Anyways, see ya :)


I think I’ve seen that one!!! But that’s about all I got..

Any other help out there? I mean, insurance?  hm..

Marked this with other leads!
