Man. All my friends and I thought this was hilarious.

Why they ever made a CG version of this I will never know.
For a moment in my life, I watched TV just to see that commercial.
I should have also mentioned that despite this, I still managed to rip my thumb off at age 12. Proof commercials don't work.

I never thought to ask "What the hell were you doing backflips in that place anyway, ASTAR?"

This was shown on WUAB 43 in Cleveland OH late night awhile back. I thought I was on crack delivered by the one eyed god of virgin corn oil...

...and I was.

Fuck you, ASTAR! There, I said it. Little shit was just showing off.

Have to admit though that you rarely see commercial with production values that awesome.
I was looking for this before to upload! Man, ASTAR is right besides Peter Venkman and Master Shredder in terms of vivid childhood memories.

What era was this aired in? I'm going to assume the 80s... man do I ever miss practical special effects.
Mid-80s. The Internet doesn't get more specific than that, but I remember seeing this as a kid as early as 1987 or so. I don't know where the War Amps got the money to pay for it, but it was worth it.

I was still watching this in the early to mid nineties, so it had some major satying power. The CGI-Remake was a complete bastardization.

Stay out of clocks, kids
...like kids who aren't already missing an arm don't feel shitty enough about it...


Quit talking down to me just cause I'm human. Bad enough you're always flaunting your reattachable arms. Prick.
I'm six again!
