BEHOLD: The greatest toy commercial of all time

Watch this commercial, and then try and tell us you don't want one

Wil Jones

You are likely an adult now, and have to spend your money on responsible things like bills and food  and Netflix.

But as a child, nothing brought as much joy as watching toy commercials, just dreaming about all those incredible toys that you’d beg your parents to buy – be they Transformers, or Beyblades, or Mega Drives, or many other magical products. They’d hypnotise you during the ad breaks of CITV or Cartoon Network, with loud music and flashy editing making the toys look far more exciting than they could possibly be.

But behold – we have found the greatest toy commercial of all time:

It’s from the late 1980s, and it,s for the SUPER TURBO TRAIN  – THE WORLD’S FASTEST TRAIN

SO POWERFUL IT CAN DO WHAT NO OTHER TRAIN CAN DO.

RACE UP A WALL – DEFYING GRAVITY.

Turn off the lights – AND YOU’RE IN NIGHT GLOW.

That music is so good! Now we’ve just got to wait for one to turn up on eBay…
