After a not so successful attempt at comedy (”The Pacifier”), it’s good to see Vin Diesel bounce back with this:

    That video made me want to hide under my bed and never come out. The nightmares are going to come back I just know it. I need to call my mom.

    On a silver lining, at least I found this in the related videos:

    I wonder if the toy tastes better than the candy.

    You want to be disturbed by a commercial? Try these with Ah-nald…

    If they ever let Arnie run for President, these will cause his opponent to win in a landslide…

    Mr. Diesel’s acting skills have improved. he may be spending less time at the gym, but he is finally exhibiting symptoms of having a personality. his eyes weren’t glowing this time, either.

    I had no idea Vin Diesel was going to play Bilbo Baggins in the new Hobbit movie! He certainly has the accent down!

    Seems more like Robin Williams to me.

    My 7-year-old thought that was the most hilarious video ever. So, kiddie comedy gold, I guess.

    Someone tapped my inner shroom.

    The kid who eats the toothpaste has since developed an incurable facial tic and mutters incessantly “minty my a**”, but he has become the Minister for Overseas Development.

    Disney had a product like this, for about a week. I thought it was genius! I wanted them badly. I finally got one and it came with Aladdin and a flying carpet.

    Shortly thereafter, they were discontinued. Some little idiot kid tried to eat the plastic toy inside and ruined it for the rest of us. The uncharitable little jerk.

    Did you know that Steven Spielberg sought out Vin Diesel specifically to cast him in a bit part written for him in Saving Private Ryan?

    Honestly. That’s like writing a dramatic role in a film specifically for Rip Taylor.

    That’s not Vin Diesel… That’s Wallace Shawn taking a break from the production of Aunt Dan & Lemon!

    Vin Diesel as played by a cracked out Patrick Stewart…

    Don’t do drugs, kids.

    Why, Mike? :(

    See what happens when you eat too much candy with toys inside them.

    Kinder eggs are pretty cool. I got a smart car in one last week.

  • 18 Charlie W on Aug 26, 2008 at 3:24 pm

    Vin Diesel himself is filled with nougat.

    Wow… these McCain campaign commercials are making increasingly less sense.

    Bill Bailey on Kinder Surprise –

    “I’m English, and as such I crave disappointment. That’s why I buy Kinder Surprise. Horrible chocolate; nasty little toy: a double-whammy of disillusionment! Sometimes I eat the toy out of sheer despair. I call them the Eggs Of Numbing Inevitability. And when I buy them, I always ask for them in the third person: “Bill Bailey would like the Eggs Of Numbing Inevitability.”"

    Until the day I died I never stopped screaming…

  • 22 Libby on Aug 27, 2008 at 6:22 pm

    At least now I know what my nightmares will be like tonight.

  • 23 TeeJay on Aug 27, 2008 at 8:53 pm

    That was truly horrific.

    My keyboard is all wet from the crying. :’(

    Poor, Vin.

    ….Wait, what am I saying? Screw you, Vin. I had a lot of stock in The Pacifier (as much as Star Wars fanboys had in Episode I) and my world was destroyed by its sucky-ness.

    I’m…not terribly sure I can forgive you for this one, Mike.
