While learning Chinese at university, we had a project where we created a little night market where each team has to come up with their own little stand. Our team came up with a movie selling stand to sell illegal VCDs (a very Chinese thing to do since piracy is rampant in China).

Part of the project was to create an advertisement that must be all in Chinese and contain two idioms.

I made the commercial in Flash and reused a lot of characters from my previous animations.
You will see Saddam Hussein, JoJo the Sad Monkey, David Lynch, HoBag, Horse’s Rabbit, Isabella Rossellini, Tom & Tom’s mom.

Watch Crazy Tom’s Movie Stand Commercial

My Chinese in the commercial is a little embarrassing. It’s awkward with each word over-pronounced. But it is what it is.

For those who don’t speak Chinese, the commercial is basically Crazy Tom going crazy. It’s probably funnier if you don’t understand what’s going on. But if you really want to know, continue by clicking the more.. link.

Tom introduces himself by saying he’s insane.

He then proceeds to tell everyone to quickly quickly quickly come come come buy buy buy his VCDs. He then threatens people who don’t buy his VCDs by saying he will turn them into MONKEYS!

Tom then goes on to list the types of movies he sells from dramas that make you cry, comedies that make you laugh and kung fu films that feed your taste for violence.

Tom goes on to say he’ll sell ANYTHING. Even his own mother.
