Very Young Avengers Assemble for Target Toy Commercial [Video]
We thought Hasbro had completely satiated our collective appetite for The Avengers movie role play toy advertisements with its amazing rap-infused commercial, but it seems there was still room in our hearts for another serving. Casting four grade school aged boys as the Hulk, Iron Man, Thor and Captain America, the retail chain Target brings many a superhero fan’s childhood fantasy to life as the group searches for Loki — presumably to beat the crap out of him with Hasbro’s various Avengers toys. The fantasy is momentarily suspended as the young “Cap” obtains a role play shield from his shopping mother, who is no doubt hoping her son and his friends don’t knock over another aisle of scented candles or whatever and get her kicked out the store. It’s a bummer that Black Widow and Hawkeye have been left out of the battle, but I’m just going to assume they’re off somewhere being master assassins with Nerf products. See the full commercial after the cut.
