G.I. Joe’s Robot Friend “Dies” While Playing Chess

Bottom Line: In yet another intriguing “Joe Sighting” on TV, GIjOE has just been spotted in a commercial for Energizer Batteries. In this clever spot, our 1:6 scale hero is shown competing in a grueling (6-month long) chess match with a toy robot friend (ala Toy Story) who suddenly collapses and “dies” from battery leakage and corrosion. It’s all a little shocking, but Joe’s reaction to losing his buddy is priceless. (Who knew Talking GIjOEs were so emotional?)

  1. The chess board is set up incorrectly. There is always supposed to be a white square in the right hand corner for each player. This board has the opposite.

    You are correct, Randy. Every chess player looks for that the first moment they look at a board. It’s unfortunate when advertisers don’t pay attention to details. They appear foolish to those who know the correct setup…..
