The Best Toy Commercial EVER

You are about to see what WGTB thinks is the best (and most intense) TOY commercial EVER.

Before he was the star of a great comic book run, ROM: Spaceknight was a toy produced by Parker Brothers. It didn't do very well (the comic outlast the toy by years) and we won't soon see a ROM film trilogy like we did Optimus Prime and the Transformers. But that's okay because this commercial does the trick. The word usage and tone is mature; the music is scare-kids-out-of-the-basement freaky; and the length is akin to a movie trailer rather than a television ad. Overall I think it feels more like early Ridley Scott than a toy advert -- and that's what makes it so great. Enjoy!

Let me know what you think.
