Vintage Action Man Sailor Appears in 2014’s New “Singing Toys” TV Commercial For Freeview (UK)

Look at those lips! As this super closeup reveals, the creators of this new spot for UK's Freeview have really outdone themselves by perfectly and expertly animated his lips. Over the years, we've seen a lot of crudely animated lip movements in GIjOE-related TV commercials—but this isn't one of them. WOW! (Photo: Freeview)

Look at those lips! As this super-closeup reveals, animators of Freeview’s new UK TV spot realistically animated Action Man’s lips. Over the years, fans have seen a lot of crudely animated mouth movements in commercials—but this isn’t one of them. Spot on, Sailor! (Photo: Freeview)

Bottom Line: Blimey! America’s GIjOE isn’t the only 12-inch action figure to appear in a new TV commercial this year. In a brand-new spot just released over in the UK, a table full of unsold toys at a “jumble sale” begins singing an old Foreigner tune as an amazed janitor looks on. The “star” of the spot is a vintage, blue-eyed, fuzzhead Action Man Sailor, complete with facial scar and UK sailor’s uniform. Although his appearance is all too short, watch Action Man’s face carefully; his lips are EXPERTLY animated. Overall, a very enjoyable commercial. Enjoy, mate!
