Gun-Totin' Kid Knocks Man From Window

Classic Commercial for Toy Gun

By Published on .

File this spot for Mattel's Tommy Burst Detective Set under the category of "they don't make 'em like that any more." I'm talking about both the spot and the product. The guns look real, makes a horrendous sound and produces smoke. How awesome is that? So awesome that a friend of mine sent this to me with the subject heading: "Best. Commercial. Ever." I don't know about that, but it's still pretty good.
