Bullet Man Commercial from the UK

Well, the gods have decided they don't want me to do coloring book threatre today, it's complicated but I haven't had power for much of the day. So in it's place I offer this 1976 British commercial for Action man (the UK name for G.I. Joe)

While stateside,
G.I. Joe was going into "Super Adventure", Action Man was always close to the military roots. Even integrating goofy characters such as Intruder seemed a little more plausible somehow. Plus Mike Power Atomic Man has a bitching fro!

I totally forgot about that helicopter with the claws in front until I saw this commercial. I used to love playiing with that thing.

This is why your website rocks.
