    I really liked the part where Bumblebee shows up. I still can't believe we're living in an universe where a live-action Bumblebee actually turns into a VW Bug!

    I loved it! I was waiting for the Delorean to show up! I do wish they used the Burton Batmobile from “Batman” and “Batman Returns”. But great commercial though.

    Just because someone has to be the nerd in the room who thinks demonstrating non-car knowledge on a mostly-car-things internet forum makes them look cool but really it only puts them on everybody's ignore lists partly because nobody likes bezzerwizzers and partly because they can't end a jokesy sentence to save their life:

    ..those aren't Velociraptors.

    As much as I can't stand Walmart itself, that was a really cool commercial.

    I originally thought that they were Procompsognathus (which appear a lot more often in the book), but the second-right one when they hit the screen has a Velociraptor rear claw.

    Not only is it a good ad it has good humour as well.

    *watches through sequence far too many times considering this is a non-car thing on a mostly-car forum*

    ..no, I don't see anything resembling a Velociraptor sickle. Might be a combination of the motion blur and a blurry car tyre in the background? Especially considering none of the others - at any other point in that clip - seems to have one.

    I'll tell you what I do see (and hear), however: an awful lot of this.

    The sounds they make are nearly identical to the Compsognathus from The Lost World movie.

    Their design is virtually identical to the Compsognathus from The Lost World movie.

    The bit where she asks if they're "hungry" is a direct reference to the above scene.

    They are, indeed, Compsognathus.


    Nominate me for most knowledgeable member of 2019 based on this one post alone. Or just nuttiest member for taking this way too seriously.

    Has anyone paid attention to the Ford pickup at the end? I know who owned it, It's almost as famous as Walmart. If no one knows the history of the truck I'll post it later.

    It's Sam Walton's truck, isn't it? Or at least one that looks like it.

    You would be right not very good focus on it, but you can see some rust on roof and the scratch on drivers side (rear bed). I believe it's been photoshopped. Plus the dogs not laying on tailgate.
