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

Colgate - Fresh Confidence - Phillippines - 2 - FIRE HYDRANT, “Snow Lady” version of herself - Ice Cube Blender

So, damn. On the ‘plus’ side, there’s an alt for this recently released.  Yes, I mean plus as in additional to awesome CG already.  I like this one as ‘canon’, but… eh. I can make my own headcanon *cough*… Anyways..

So, this girl is trying the product in her bathroom. Sticks the toothbrush in her mouth and is all wide-eyed and head convulsey… Then her head turns into a fire hydrant with caps vibrating, literally bursting out water everywhere.  No mess, right?  So, she tries it again.

This time, it turns her into a frozen, snow-lady version of herself; and she’s cold everywhere else.. That’s OK.. But then after that, she becomes a blender, rapidly blending ice everywhere.

Hard to find alts, so here’s ManyMany’s HD copy..

Colgate - Fresh Confidence - Phillippines - 1; Fan Head, Water funnel, and Ice Cube

Hell yeah. So, this ad was popular enough to get more than one. But hold your horses.. They’re queued up!

So, in this ad, a guy’s having the product. OK. But when he’s trying the product, his head convulses rapidly between each try… And the first turns his head and neck into a metallic fan, blowing things all over his bathroom.. Cool.  Next, he has a giant water funnel/vortex replacing them.  After that, the vortex freezes around his head in a giant ice cube.  Eventually he breaks out.

So.. yeah! This stuff is like, usually perfect.

Done by ManyMany.asia.  Here’s a mirror of their Vimeo’s DL.

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 Adland.tv, 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…

Ratchet & Clank 3 - Spanish Ad

Nice find, WhatIReallyLike; I couldn’t find another copy of this. Maybe if I knew spanish better… :/  Anyways.. 

In this ad, two neighbor kids have a comical gun fight, shooting at each other with bigger and bigger artillery.  Until they destroy something the little sister values— her little dog’s doghouse.  So she poofs them into sheep.

Ratchet & Clank - Mootater 640 - Woman into Cow

WhatIReallyLike, thanks for the note on this!

Basically, some jerks transform a dude’s girlfriend into a cow, and then tell him his girlfriend’s hot. (She’s a cow.)   Then they run away from him instead of making him a cow, too.  Does that make this less of a prank? Hm..

Anyways, YMMV, but worth a peek.

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. :)

Louis Vuitton & Yayoi Kusama App - Tentacle Bursting, Dot Becoming

So, this guy uses this app to make two things change before his eyes.  First, he uses the ‘waves’ part of the Vuitton/Kusama app to make tentacles *burst* out from this awesome pot in the living room.

Then, despite my hopes that he’d use the same part when his playful friend shows up, he instead chooses the ‘dots’ setting. So, she begins turning into layers of dots, before they get blown away by the ad continuing on.

Winner Taco - Changing Window Wiper

FYI, this ad is kinda an alternate cut of a whole ad, which included the parts shown from this other copy.  Thanks to WhatIReallyLike for another fine contribution!

In this ad, the ad exec is reading reports about people worried about turning into a polar bear due to eating the product.  He claims it’s unlikely, but the window wiper goes up, eats a winner taco.. and on the way down, is a bear. YMMV on the costume. :(

But woot!  I wonder if they’ll release a new ad in the series now that the product’s coming back? *crosses fingers*
