I’ve been pretty mesmerized by the classic old Action Jackson commercials from Mego. They have a lot of charm and I decided it might be fun to take a crack at making one of my own. The Action Jackson commercials actually got Mego in a lot of trouble because the early ones showed AJ doing things without a kid performing the action, which is a no-no. I sort of followed that tradition here, but did my best to insure that Jackson was moved in a way that you could tell someone was manipulating him.

I also poked a little fun, but I’m quite happy with how this turned out. I’m sure there will be more of these to come. I wanted this to seem like a commercial that someone unearthed off an old 1970’s Betamax tape. Classic fun.
