In commercials, it’s a common trick by toy companies to cast kids who are older than the toy’s target audience.

However, LJN was really pushing the envelope with this one. I bet an hour after posing their action figures for the camera, these two kids were buying their weekly Clearasil supply and hitting on the cute girl from Algebra II class.

Yeah, at that age I’m not so sure I’d still be playing with wrestling figures like these kids are…

    Collecting? Maybe (in fact nowadays it’s even likely the collector market would be that old). But a couple of teenagers that look like they might even be old enough to drive actually acting out matches with the figures? That’s a bit iffy to say the least and bordering on absurd.

    But I bet you wish you had them all now.

    At my current age I’d totally do that commercial now. You think those punk kids can sell those figures? Just wait until you see me cut my “mad” and “dope” shilling skills.

    We’re talking Lord Alfred Hayes level of shilling here.

    Those kids look like they should be trying to steal beer from their parents for Friday night rather than playing wresting toys 😛

    “Can you tell the difference?” Yes, the real wrestlers actually have movement.
