The Laws of Toyland

This is insane and awesome. Via Paul Blinov in an IM, this is an old ’80s pre-Tim Burton Batman ad from Canadian retail “giant” Zellers (think a slightly classier Wal-Mart with Canadian Olympics gear). The best part of the video by far is the Joker’s insane, horrible canned cackle.

Also, been working on a post on the frustrating formalism in video game reviews and a personal perspective on where video game criticism can go and move. Also, stupid and common criticism of critics that drive me up the wall and why they’re completely horrible.

    Just want to point out that I actually remember this series of commercials and it did in fact make me want to shop at Zellers. There was also a tie in promotion while they were airing that got you a free Batman comic with two packages of loose leaf paper during back to school. I can’t temember exactly what it was about, but it was one of those shitty out of continuity promotional ones that tried to keeps kids off the drugs or some such thing.
