The Marketing Adventures of Tintin



When it wasn't getting out of one thing and into another, Tintin was not spared the potential for product endorsement and promotional considerations as we see over the years in the following ads!


Is there be any end in sight..?


...guess not!

Snowy is the awesome. I'm not a dog person, but Snowy in that dog food commercial had me laughing out loud.

Also, live action Snowy in the UK news commercial was pretty damn cool.

Yeah, Blogger adds extra code when you upload pictures that throws the 'more' code off. Mila has the fix. I need to learn how to switch the code myself.

Heh, that's also probably the only time they got him to 'talk'. Most filmed adaptations never carry on that part of the comics itself, but I can see why (same with Snoopy).

Also, live action Snowy in the UK news commercial was pretty damn cool.

If you think that was cool, you outta check out the live-action Tintin movies from the early 60's!

I know how! Go under "Settings", then "Formatting" and type it in where you see the "Post Template" box and it should put it on each post you make.
