The Hasbro website promotes the "Oozinator" with "Sneak up on your opponents with a surprise bio-ooze attack! Just when they think you’re coming at ‘em with water, blast ‘em with a shot of icky bio-ooze! Shoot out globs of gooey bio-ooze and then drench ‘em with water! It’s a double blast attack that’ll keep your opponents on their toes and running during every water fight. With the OOZINATOR blaster you don’t just get soaked, you get drenched!"
Yes. That DOES sound fun. Quite. Indeed. And the reptilian design invokes images all sorts of creepy alien horror films. Kids dig that.
But did Hasbro mention that, after pumping the gun repeatedly, a stream of white cream shoots out?!
Don't believe me? Check out the commercial for the Oozinator here.
Most of the kids seem to balk at being hit with white goo as it sprays all over their faces and chests. Well, except for that Black kid in the yellow shirt who seems to be mashing it all over... His parents should get him to Jesus Camp ASAP!
As disturbing as it seems, it's also good experience for the girls and boys who play with Barbies around the neighborhood. They'll need the practice on how to take a white shot in the face soon enough...
