Rally of the Dolls

Published on .

Yes, these NFL on Fox promos may seem like vulgar knockoffs of the great Brisk work from Loose Moose, but that can be a good thing. These spots, done in Vinton "clay-mercial" style, are frequently disgustingly violent, and now that Celebrity Deathmatch is over, we need our stop-motion mayhem and we need it bad. Here, we get it in the doll-like form of Terry Bradshaw, the official idiot of the Fox football crew. He gets kicked by a babe, fried on a grill, liquefied in a blender, then ingested by an actual human, and, finally, ripped to shreds in a movie projector. Maybe his doll and Danny DeVito's doll can tangle on Fox Celebrity Boxing.
