Volkswagon Feeling Carefree Commercial
- 80s pop culture is a hot commodity today in TV ads. VW gets in the act by remaking the music video of A-Ha's 'Take On Me.' LOVE. IT.
TOPPS Leaks Details for 2014 Garbage Pail Kids Release - Strange Kids Club
- Can't believe they are still making GPK! Was in the local comic shop last week (had been awhile) and found some GPK Chrome packs sitting at the register. Had no idea they were still around and at $3.50 a pack!
- There are a couple that could be successful, but Thundercats and Voltron have already been rebooted as animated shows. I can't imagine live-action working for either of them. Curious to see if they can make the rumored MOTU live-action work or if it will fail...again.
- Never had a My Pet Monster, but I remember the rich kid that lived two doors up the street had a Teddy Ruxpin. Always wanted to pop in my Run DMC Raisin' Hell cassette album and see if Teddy could keep up.
