"Join our protest against the fruit flingers"

Here's a parody (MPEG) of that commercial with the zillion superballs. It looks like it must have been at least as much work as the original!

      Was this a sad attempt at link-whoreing, or did you actually have something to say?

    The irony (about the superball commercial, that is) is that although I told my sister they were real superballs, she said it looked as if they'd done the whole thing with computers.

    Ahhh nice bit of viral advertising there, I like the way they went to the extra effort of setting up a couple of fake news sites.

      Well, yes, but it's awesome in its own right, too. The juxtaposition of the happy colors, hippie music, and reference to the superball version is delicious with the smashing windows and watermelons, and the refusal of the fruit to bounce. It's like the evil version. It would be more complete if they squished the frog, though....

    Hmmm... bit of a waste of fruit, no?

      It must have been CGI. Since I have no way of proving this, you'll just have to take my word for it.

    Did that superball ad ever get shown nationally? I don't recall ever having fast-forwarded past it.

    That's unbelievably awesome. Apparently Tango are well-known for their odd advertising (Try Googling "tango advertisement"). And now, they're subverting other ads and twisting them to their own nefarious purposes!
