G.I. Joe and Jem Appear Together For Second Time in New “Fa La La La Love” Honda TV Commercial

Bottom Line: Despite Hasbro “deep-sixing” our favorite 1:6 scale action hero, GIjOE is clearly, a long way from being retired as an American icon. In a second TV commercial in as many months, Adventurer Joe and his hot date, Jem, are featured together (again) in a new 30-second TV spot for Honda automobiles. This time, Joe is clearly the star, singing, dancing and kung-fuing his way into Jem’s heart. Our only beef? The animators took the quick-n-easy way out when animating his mouth in this spot, utilizing what looks like a simple, cut-out paper mouth stuck onto Joe’s face. The result is cheap and “fake” looking. Otherwise, this spot is terrific fun to watch. Enjoy!

    AT Commander accomplished his mission! Hell yeah! It really is a pity that an automotive company had to pay tribute to an icon of our childhood while Joe’s parent company ignored his 50th birthday.

    Since the number of views each of these new videos gets determines which charity gets a donation from Honda, we’ve got to get more Joe fans watching that spot! Currently the Skeletor and He-Man spot has the most views — nearly double what Joe and Jem have. So spread the word and let’s help make Joe the winner!
