If you have spoken to me at all during the past three months, you may already be aware that I have become passionately obsessed with Adventure Time on Cartoon Network. Since the show is ostensibly for kids, it airs during the network's hours of kids programming (which are most of them), which means I sometimes get to see some pretty nutty commercials. Today I saw these gems:
For Future Denists: Play Doh Dr Drill & Fill Playset
For Glamor Girls with a Passion for Crustaceology: Xia-Xia.
I can't find a video of the commercial, but the product is apparently made be the same people who made the weirdly popular Zhu-Zhu pets, which are little robotic hamsters on wheels. My guess is that the company, Cepia, thought to themselves, "how can we make the same product, only more bizarre and for girls?" And the answer was clear: Sparkly Hermit Crabs.
