I was browsing through the Trenches recently and came across an intriguing post from “captcarl74” about a restored, full-color version of the classic “Adventures of GIjOE Sinking Capsule” commercial. WOW! Along with the previously posted spot for the Mobile Support Vehicle, this has to be one of the greatest GIjOE commercials EVER.
It’s got everything. Great music. Great narration. Great action. Great storyline. Great photography and shot angles. Great kid actors (look for the one that mouths “Wow” at just the right time). Hilarious! If you haven’t seen this superb spot in a while, you owe it to yourself to watch this fully restored version again. It is AWESOME!!!!!! The best line is the last one which captures the heart of why we love this toy so much…“Make up a different adventure EVERYDAY…with GIjOE!”
A big thank you to eagle-eyed, captcarl74 for his heads-up on this great video!
