Cheated! I never got a Lots-o’-Huggin’ Bear…

Do you remember Lots-o’-Huggin’ Bear?

Do you still have yours?

If you answered yes, you are delusional, but Pixar is brilliant for creating this commercial to introduce a NEW character to the Toy Story franchise.  The past toy story movies have incorporated CLASSIC toys into the animated films, but in Toy Story 3 due out in June, a new toy makes its debut in the form of Lots-o’-Huggin’ Bear.

So how do you make a fake toy seem like a classic childhood fave?

You make a commercial that looks and sounds like the 80′s and you post it on YouTube.

Still…

I feel cheated, that’s a cute bear.

    So this is the part of childhood we should have no recollection of? ha ha
    How can they say it’s circa 1983? He reminds me of a little Sully!

    That is hysterical! I was trying to remember that bear, but then telling myself that it would not have been important to me because I was graduating high school.
    Disney is a genius at marketing!
