TJR’s “Video Pick of the Week” #16: “The Adventures of GIjOE: The Kayak Attack”

The members of the Central Illinois GIjOE Collector’s Club (CIGCC) have just released another of their entertaining club videos. As usual, the members hope to remind other fans and collectors of the fading fact that GIjOEs were meant to be played with, and demonstrate yet another way to do just that.

In their past videos, the CIGCC has shown us how to create a self-towing convoy of vehicles using only pieces of nearly invisible fishing line, how to have a huge “backyard battle,” how to “swap noggin’s” between figures, and how to practice for and participate in the time-honored tradition of a GIjOE “parachute drop.”

This time around, the club has created an all-new, fan-fantasy GIjOE commercial entitled, “The Kayak Attack.” In it, a son decides to pit his vintage 1966 Sea Sled against his Dad’s modern-era “Super Sea Sled” to in attempt to determine which is the fastest.

Bottom Line: We love seeing children, teens, men and women (of all ages) playing with and enjoying their GIjOEs. Here at The Joe Report, we say, FREE YOUR JOES! When you grow tired of looking at them from behind all that cellophane, we recommend that you follow the lead of the members of the CIGCC and rediscover just how fun it is to PLAY with GIjOE. Go, JOE!
