RC Scorpion - Hedgehog - print

RC SCORPION remote control cars are tougher than those other remote controlled wimpy toys, and this is how Ogilvy London decided to communicate that.
If you don't want a remote controlled car, head over to Roadkilltoys for your very own squished raccoon.

Oh wow! I'm definitely getting one of those squashed racoons for my godson!
[The advert was ok too.]

I read "grandson" for a second and thought you might have procreated at age five or something.

Amusing this concept of "tough toys for tough boys". There is currently an advert airing in the US for Tonka which follows a similar concept using the strapline "Built for Boyhood". Thought I possibly saw another ad somewhere with another similar line but might have been for this company (and might have been on this site).

Love the squished hedgehog though.

Use a toy animal to keep the activists from throwing a hissy!

That's not the reason it's a toy animal. Think about it a little longer. It'll come to you.
