Wow, I need a haircut. Bad.

Other than the fact that my hair is beginning to make me look like I am a cast member of Dazed and Confused....this is one of the better, if not the best, TV spots we've had done on us....Pogo seemed to really understand the designer toy concept. Nice.

Then scroll down on the list of clips under the player...we're 9 spots or so down the list at the moment.

It also airs M-F at 7p, 8p, 9p and midnight on CLTV for you Chicagoland peeps, but I think I'm late in posting this, so our run on the tube might be over now.

Sorry, I couldn't find it...someone else stole the title "Nerdcore"

Just kidding, that took a bit to air, there was a pink sarge on the shelf, and a full set of CGR.

wow, the shop is bigger than what I thought looking at the pics. And I learnt that rotofugi is in fact pronounced as rotofuji :oops:

Your personality is what won me over. That and your collection of 80s vintage metal T-shirts.

Great spot. Kirby did an excellent job of explaining designer toys and Shawnimals got a lot of airtime.

One quibble; a Baseman Egg Qee is not a "whatever".

That made me laugh. Also when they focused on the Kozik grenade and said "simple". :lol: I am sure the artists would not agree with those statements.
