Kinder Surprise, a product apparently sold mostly in Canada and the U.K., is some kind of chocolate egg that has a toy inside. Judging by this old commercial, it caters mostly to children who don’t mind having wrenching nightmares starring an insane, unintelligible Humpty Dumpty. Extra points for anyone who can decipher a single word that comes out of this evil egghead’s mouth. Possibly he’s a character from some long-lost TV show that wreaked its own havoc with kids’ brains. They seem to have switched to more staid commercials recently, perhaps after losing share to the local loony bins. Via YesButNoButYes.
