They Didn't Obey the Rules

I was obsessed with GREMLINS when I was a kid. It was just one of those pitch-perfect movies that finds you at the ideal age. Not yet jaded enough to hate on the treacle. Also, I was obsessed with owning pets when I was growing up—and I wanted a dog for FOREVER—so this kid (in his 20s, but he's still living at home) getting a weird pet for Christmas was all the hook I needed.

I guess this U.K. company ponied up the rights to use them in a commercial. Too bad it's just a commercial, but seeing those old puppets in action is real nice.
