Because they were taking the piss out of the show.calbergerac said:I thought it was funny, yeah. But why did they have to beat up that Pikachu doll? And what was with the Piglett Toy(Winnie the Pooh)? PIGLETT(not DIGLETT) isn't even Pokemon. And don't those two have a little TOO much time doing that weird theme song spoof?
It IS funny. In a freaky way.
i have been into the show since 1998 when it came out i remember one of the animé where homer was saying wtf is pokémon?Dogasu said:The best commercial I've seen aired back in...1999? 2000? Waaaaay before a lot of you got into the show, anyway.
The commercial aired back when Kids' WB! could actually make good commercials. In it, Robin (from "The New Batman Adventures") keeps bugging Batman to sing him a bedtime song. Batman hesitates for a bit, so Robin keeps bugging him until he finally gives in...and sings the Jigglypuff song! I think Kids' WB! actually got Kevin Conrad (Batman's VA) to do the commercial, and the result was hilarious.
I remember that the old school Bulbagarden site used to have the commercial up for download, but that was before NOA sent a cease and desist order causing the site to take all its video clips down.
Sailor Bambii said:I remember one for Ruby and Sapphire. People had their pictures taken in a photo booth with a Pokemon from R/S that looked just like them. I remember this old lady who looked like a Shroomish and this rocker guy who looked just like a Zigzagoon. It was cool and weird and I loved it.
I also remember one where the kids were saying the motto but it was for the trading cards instead. I thought that one was sorta cool.
OMG...I've seen that too...;_; poor Pikachu.calbergerac said:There's another weird video I saw with two idiots lipsynching the Pokemon theme song and hitting a stuffed Pikachu doll with a baseball bat. One of them licked the camera. It was freaky and stupid.
I remeber that comercial! It was alsome!!!! X3;; I remember a weird comercial.. I think it came in 1999? Anyways, Pokemon figures were like everywhere, (i dont remember it very well) And then they started falling from the sky and a kid was catching them in his Pocket?
