Spy vs. Spy TV ad

Spy vs. Spy sell out! Mountain Dew has roped in the infamous black & white spies to shill their beverage. Quicktime needed to view the commercials. [via waxy.org]

At the risk of asking the obvious, why proliferate their sell-out by posting it here?

Oh, and Mad Magazine has ads now. Yep. They took the plunge a couple years back. I know. Nothing's sacred.

Cool. I haven't seen Spy vs Spy for ages.

Okay, the ads are funny. I was worried for a moment that they were going to try to kill each other by tricking them into actually drinking Mountain Dew.

Yeah, the ads are funny (and well done in keeping with the original artwork style), but Bill Gaines is spinnin' in his grave.

With all the bullshit/predictable/commercial/product placement vehicular/sentimental tripe that passes for cinema these days, maybe the television commercial is the last remaining place where we'll be able to find true cinematic art.

The commercials are awesome, sell-out notwithstanding.

it's true. commercials now are better than movies. If you're counting entertainment value per dollar spent.
