Vintage Lots-o'-Huggin' Bear Commercial Uncovered!


The year is 1983 and your child really needs a new plush companion. What can a loving parent do?

Who would’ve thought — Lotso (AKA Lots-o’-Huggin’ Bear) is the perfect solution! Check out this vintage commercial for the jumbo pink teddy bear that was recently uncovered on YouTube, conveniently embedded below:

After watching "Lotso, Lotso, Lots-o’-Huggin’ Bear" you’re probably thinking one of two things: "I didn’t know Lotso was a classic toy!" or "How did Upcoming Pixar fall for this?"

Well, as convincing as this commercial is, after a little digging around it’s clear that this advertisement is a super clever and amazingly executed viral video made by Pixar! Yup, featured here is the Toy Story Collection Lotso that was revealed earlier this year at the NY Toy Fair! Or is it…?

You decide! What are your thoughts on this vintage Lotso ad?
