Olde VS New: Madballs

Alright, we’ve played with the toys and we’ve seen the artist’s work (the blog from which I stole the following, in fact), but this is the real clincher. Below, I present one of the original Madballs TV ads and a brand new one for Nickelodeon.


Not bad, though it is missing the high-pitched voice tinged with insanity. Bonus points for use of the phrase “totally gross!”

One thought on “Olde VS New: Madballs

  1. I find the “Gross for one, gross for all” line to be truly inspiring, but I am impressed they put together a pretty good ad in these modern times.My only complaint is that the new voiceover sounds like a guy pitching blues clues and not the micromachines guy huffing helium.
