This Christmas, many kids will be glued to the TV, adding the toys they see in commercials to their wish lists. And Christmas morning, they’ll unwrap their presents, elated they got that super awesome Hot Wheels set. Then they’ll actually play with it.
The ads made them seem so great. Look at how fast they go! ZOOM! WOOSH! That’s gonna be so cool flying from my window!
But as this mock video from Jest shows, it ain’t so hot. Just watch the video and imagine what horrible awakenings these children are in for this Christmas. Welcome to the world of hyperbolic advertisement, kids. [Jest via Buzzfeed]
