From the wizards at Hell Laboratories

Why would you want a doll that laughed incessantly? And why would you make a commercial THIS creepy unless your real intention was to terrorize children? (Not that I oppose the terrorizing of children, mind you. I just want advertisers to be up front about it.)

    I saw “My name is talking tina” while i was babysitting once…I’m not even going to push the button

  3. Carrie Says:

    That is the creepiest commercial ever! It’s like a horror film at :07 and :09. Freaky!

  4. Christina D Says:

    That’s… really freaky. I’m not sure what else to say about it.

  5. Dave Says:

    Can’t sleep…Baby Laugh A Lot wil kill me…can’t sleep..Baby Laugh A Lot will kill me…

  6. Randy Tayler Says:

    Oh my word that’s frightening. I can’t believe it didn’t end in blood.

  7. Q Says:

    Wow. I was just as frightened by the little girls doing their zombie-from-Thriller turnarounds than I was by the doll…

  8. Heidi Says:

    Wow, oh wow! Shouldn’t the girls have been a little more scared, and why was the baby on a rocking chair, or horse or something rocking. That makes it even more creepy.

  9. Joe Says:

    It’s sad when the doll has more teeth than the people.

  10. Karen Says:

    OMG!! I watched it without sound and it was horrifying. It really, truly looked like scenes from a horror film. *shudders* What year was that from? Was it really meant to sell a toy?

  11. Lohengrin Says:

    Dear me. Those kids looked way happier than I would be to hear that demonic laughter.

  12. David Manning Says:

    Oh come on. It’s not that creepy.

  13. Clumpy Says:

    Dave, a commercial with horror movie editing, Linda Blair headspinning, an announcer who grows more and more intense to the sound of children’s laughter and copious missing teeth isn’t scary?

  14. Devino Says:

    Why Eric, why?

  15. Laylabean Says:

    That’s just wrong on so many levels – not the least of which is the chubby yarn bows in one girl’s hair. I used to wear those and they looked like crap on me too.

    Wow, that was real?
