I was just watching TV and I saw Orville Reddenbacher! I had heard it was coming out, but it was very freaky. My wife said "Who is Orville Reddenbacher?". I just felt uncomfortable watching it, because the eyes and the mouth were very goofy.

No no, it was part joke, part unnerved. I guess I never stated it was a commercial for popcorn. It was CGI Orville, and he was very freaky looking. I heard Jim Scott or maybe Gary Burbank talk about this the other day. When I saw the ad it was really really weird.

They have GOT to do this for Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Have a CGI Colonel pimp slap Pamela Anderson with an over-sized chicken leg and have one of her silicone implants pop out.

Can commercials win an Emmy?? :laugh:

Of course, Orville has always freaked me out, alive or zombie.

Saw the commercial last night while watching CSI. I don't know why but it kind of freaked me out too. Really strange.

CGI Orville currently resides in the 'uncanny valley'.

I didn't like the commercial at all. It spooked me a little.

When I first saw it I thought it was a joke. I thought it was some Saturday Night Live spoof. I kept waiting for the energizer bunny to appear or something. Anything.

I just think that once a man passes he should be left alone. There's no reason for them to computer enhance him and make it seem like he's still trying to sell popcorn. Let it go.

Heck, just use the film from the old commercials. That was just creepy.

Not an Emmy, but they can earn a Clio.

Exactly. It used to be called "respect the dead". Nowadays that has been chucked aside all in the name of selling and gross profit. Disgusting IMO.

The only nuance that I would disagree with on this one, is at least they didn't Destroy a classic performance, some clever editing, all be it frame by frame, was used to create that.

The Orville one... that's just too far off the scale.
