Fake Nostalgia, Pixar Style

Posted By on April 26, 2010, 10:59 AM

Isn't it entertaining re-watching vintage commercials for your favorite childhood toys ... especially when those toys didn't actually exist? ---

This video -- in all its grainy early-1980s glory -- finds children smiling beatifically at Lots O' Huggin' Bear, their favorite stuffed critter. But Lots O' Huggin' Bear didn't exist in the early 1980s. He's a new creation for Disney/Pixar's Toy Story 3, and the commercial is a viral fake.

It's the little touches of hilarious brilliance like these that make everyone trust implicitly that, despite a somewhat generic-looking trailer, Toy Story 3 will in fact be just as awesome as everything else that has come from the animation pioneer.
