GiG Pretenders Commercial
Mr. Denim Jacket over the Shoulder here apparently has special powers. Because when his hands turn blue, he can rip a Pretender shell in half. Which doesn't exactly sell the longevity of the toy very well. Outside of the neon horror and toy mutilation, the commercial does do a decent job of selling Finback to viewers. It's hip and cool, perfect during an afternoon of children's television at the time. I'm kind of impressed and maybe a little frightened to let that kid around my toys.
