Milk-fed thumb toy whales on crochet doll

A Japanese crochet doll loses a street fight to a little rubber thumb figure in this animated milk commercial for the BC Dairy Foundation. The thumb guy reminds me of Gumby, but not in a good way. The ad’s pretty ho-hum, but it reminded me of the epic, insanely violent and un-P.C. Jimmy vs. Timmy “Cripple Fight” on South Park some years back. Why do people keep adding speed-metal to that clip on YouTube?
