These fake ads promote 'Toy Story 3' with toys that never existed, and have gone viral. The spots are designed to look like 1980's toy commercials for Lots-o’-Huggin’ Bear. The Lots-o’-Huggin’ Bear is a character in 'Toy Story 3' and is a soon to be released toy, but the lovable teddy bear was not a toy in the 1980's.

The fake ad production is so convincing that people don't realize the VHS tape static crawling along the bottom of the screen as the video streams is just part of the ruse. Stats for Viral Video Spoofvertising Trending: Older & Average
