The Toy Story universe is filled with toys. The original featured all the classics, from Mr. Potato Head to Monkeys in a Barrel. With the sequel Toy Story 2, we got a few new cowboy and cowgirl toys, amongst others. In the third Disney and Pixar film, the CG, 3D, and HD Toy Story 3, our lovable group of toys is dropped off at a daycare center filled with new toys added to the mix; some classic (Like Barbie’s Ken) and some not-so-authentic, like Lots’-o-Huggin’ Bear. In an effort to make the not-actually-real toy products seem real, Disney and Pixar created a number of fake commercial ads, pretending to be from 1983. First up is Lots’-o-Huggin’ Bear, voiced by Ned Beatty in the film, who even gets a Japanese version of the commercial. Check them out! Think they’ll help build a buzz (Buzz!) for the film’s launch on June 18th?
