Wasn't the doll sitting by the window last night?

Eric Snider links to what is possibly the scariest television commercial of all time. It's not the baby doll that gets me (certainly the Elmo dolls are no less creepy), but the slasher movie editing and deranged announcer. This commercial debuted in a time long before children's laughter and reanimated dolls were standard horror fare, so it's possible that they wouldn't be as terrified of this video as EVERY SINGLE MODERN PERSON would, but I still like to think there was some element of evil in this commercial's production.

  1. I have just taken the time to view this video, and I must agree that it bears more resemblance to a horror movie, than a commercial for a laughing doll. The mad cachinnations of the announcer, near the end of the piece, were particularly ghoulish.
