Ugh -- those CBS ads are annoying. Thanks CBS -- I'll make it a point to avoid whatever lame sitcom you're pushing.

I'm a robot made out of meat, and I approve this SLYT.

I'd go see a movie adaptation of Where's Waldo in a heartbeat. Really.

I liked it. Well done indeed.

I was somewhat disappointed that they didn't also need to find a pair of binoculars, a walking stick, three men in trouble, Santa Claus, four roller skates, a pet turtle, and a beauty queen.

The Saturday morning cartoon version of Where's Waldo can't hold a candle to this!

Oh, it's out there. It's just really hard to find.

That was a great idea and well done.....but. It should be The Waldo Crowne Affair.

Isn't that the sequel, where he wears circle and spiral patterns instead of stripes?

That was so good. Does anyone else remember the Where's Waldo game for the NES? Man, that was one of the worst video games of all time.

I feel bad that I thought this sucked. I will try to like it with future viewings.

No kidding, right? Just recently, YouTube has started going all Super Ad on the popular videos. Seems like a crappy way to reward videos for being popular.

Hilarious! - this instantly put me in a better mood.

You're better pray Jerry Bruckheimer doesn't read mefi or you'll be eating your words once the first stills start leaking.

I really want this to be a real movie.

Is it me or does waldo look like Andy Samberg?

Seems like a crappy way to keep corporate media happy and out of the courts

Ha, ha. You crazy Americans! My viewings are ad free. Sometimes its good to come from a pissy little country at the bottom of the world.

Not to mention Wenda or Wizard Whitebeard and his scrolls. Check them out at the Waldo Wiki.

You sure know how to give a guy a heart attack while scanning through MeFi.

You really don't remember, do you? We didn't pick you. You picked us. You volunteered. Right here. Right here, even after you were warned.

I've watched this twice. From inside the houseUS. No CBS ads. ?

Are these the same guys who did the Minesweeper trailer? I keep wanting to hate these but they always end up making me laugh just enough that I keep watching to the end.

I thought Waldo was dead, He disappeared from the local newspaper, I thought he Bourned his Identity.

"W. Whitebeard" is listed as Waldo's handler in the agent file sequence.
posted by zennie at 10:39 AM on September 24, 2008


He changed his name to Wally and moved to the UK.
