MacGuyver's teenage years.

God, I used to be able to recite this ad, it aired about every eight seconds on Nickelodeon back in the day.

Then and now, I want to punch this kid in the mandibula.
Rodents of Unusual Size - 2007-10-23
Everyone knows someone like this. He embodies that guy you just want to punch.
Aelric - 2007-10-23
add a college goatee and you got the weaselly know-it-all from every class discussion session in college.

Oh my God, you're right.

This was one of the last ads I'd heard credited to Stan Freberg. Snotty kid there is his son.
Roachbud - 2007-10-23
Why would a teacher give a kid an A on a report for only using one source of information?
cognitivedissonance - 2007-10-23
At least he doesn't have Stan Freberg's crazy swede-fro.
Hooper_X - 2007-10-23
This ad was about a decade and a half before its time, really.
oswaldtheluckyrabbit - 2007-10-23
Is that the Bill Nye announcer?
cognitivedissonance - 2007-10-23
No, that was Pat Cashman.

Two questions:

Is this Moe Berg before he formed Pursuit of Happiness?

Was that too much of a Canadian reference?
Xiphias - 2007-10-23
The Voice's indifference to the kid is pretty great. "Uhuh. Yeah. Mmmhmm."
Cap'n Profan!ty - 2007-10-23
Isn't there something out on the internets about this kid all grown up? I seem to recall something.

Wait, there's an 80s tag, but the copyright is 1991?! I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO THINK!
Jeff Fries - 2007-10-23
It belongs to the twilight zone between the 80s and 90s along with Blossom, Guns N Roses, and Saved by the Bell.

It's not so much 2007 now as it is Nineteen-Eighty-Twenty-Seven

Don't forget Fine Young Cannibals

When the cold war ended the 80s brought out the neon and decided the party had go on a little longer.

Fingasmcgee - 2007-10-23
I have something called the internet and It's like my very own research library but it doesn't take up shelf space, thats what you get for being born before its time
joyofdiscord - 2007-10-23
One report on "Space" and another on "the Human Body." Those are pretty broad topics.

Bonus points for promoting the old "copy it all out of the encyclopedia" tactic of high school report-writing.
Portaxx - 2007-10-23
Five stars because I distinctly remember my dad saying "keep wondering, kid, since that's not your 'mandibula.'" As such I demand that this have a "mandibula" tag.
kingarthur - 2007-10-23
I'm not watching this. You can't make me watch this.
fatatty - 2007-10-23
Did this actually sell any encyclopedias or just incite domestic abuse?
Caminante Nocturno - 2007-10-23
I never called, and I always imagined the announcer getting angry at the kid for convincing him that I would.
Doctor Arcane - 2007-10-24
Um. He has an interesting blog now. NSFW

WOW. "I've been in therapy for 15 years..." He sure likes titties a lot.

Gwago - 2008-02-04
What the hell. It's like a demented POETV in there. I just watched a child birth for Christ's sake.

And yeah, that dude loves his titties.

baleen - 2007-10-25

God this commercial used to piss me off so much. They played it ad nauseum on Saturday mornings.

what a terrible piece of cock
FABIO2 - 2007-12-09
How ironic he starts off sitting next to the very instrument that lead to his product's obsolescence (like, ONE year later).
joelkazoo - 2009-01-05
Is that Les Lye as the narrator?
