The Goofiest MOTU Commercial Ever

…and let me tell you, MOTU commercials know from goofy. But this one…well, you’ll just have to watch it for yourself.

I don’t know whether to feel sorry for the announcer (who I believe is Victor Caroli, who did a lot of these ’80s boys’ toys commercials–and the narration to Transformers: the Movie), or to respect him for being willing to rap a disclaimer. Still, I have to believe there was a lot of laughing in the recording booth for this one.

P-p-p-p-p-power, Master Power. Some guys got it, some guys don’t.

    The one rap commercial in the beach has "Keno" from the movie TMNT 2 :secret of the ooze.

  2. Young Richard

    Obviously the work of Rappor, evil master of rapping.

  3. After the video ends, one of the thumbnails leads to a Castle Grayskull version of the same rap.

  4. Mario

    "Some guys got it, some guys don't."

    Fucking genius.

    Mine would be a parody of this vintage Battle Armor He-Man commercial, and every time Beastman hits He-Man, the kid has to stop play and change out the panels. -Or- comically, have a screen saying "forty seconds later" with some of that elevator music playing in the background… and for every subsequent hit, you'd go back to that same schtick.

    @PrfktTear: I think you need something ridiculous like Jimmy Fallon's writers for those commercials nothing gets cornier than them.

  8. PrfktTear

    I think we need some new MOTU Commercials… *mind is buzzing*

  9. I remember this campaign. It was near the end, wasn't it? My favorite is definitely the one at the beach.

    I think these ads were part of why I stopped being interested in MOTU back in the day.

    @Crazy: This is the Spydor one. I heard about it because it was referenced in's "Roast Gooble" podcast and has since become a running joke.

  11. There were several MOTU rapping commercials. I can't see this at work because youtube is blocked so I can't tell what commercial this is for, but I know the Spydor commercial was one and at least 2 others. What is this one?

    I felt it necessary to spoof the epic LandShark commercial in a recent review I did on BattleCat.
    (Shameless plug)

  12. That was awful. Why the hell did Mattel go w/ bad rap as creative direction on this one? Ha!
