He looks like a Nerd (the candy) and Wilkins, the forgotten Muppet.

Man. Man. If we ever do Top 50 Commercials, I know what I'm voting for. I'm voting for Hero Quest. But I'll probably vote for that dumb chow mein dragon too!

Man, I love Willikins.

He's like Kermit, except with unflappable stolidism replaced by disproportionate cartoon-violence.

Wilkins, a coffee so great, you must be threatened with death to convince you to drink it.

EDIT: I can't decide which is my favourite: the one where Wilkins cleans his blade after killing Wontkins or the one where they are playing cards and Wilkins gives up any pretense of a joke premise and just fucking shoots Wontkins. Also, the black market one has a creepy vibe to it.

It's been a while since the last time I saw those commercials, I'd forgotten how very psychotic Willkins is.

Wilkins Coffee commercials were the Hostel of their day.

I nominate Top 50 Star Trek Episodes.

I won't have time to host it, though Oh, I hope somebody volunteers for this before the voting closes.

If someone wants to pick up the baton and CAN host it, go ahead. And yes, if you agree to it and then immediately hand it off to a certain, let's say, crimson porcupine, that's good too. But whoever nominates has to take the responsibility if the scarlet erinaceus (I LEARNED A NEW WORD TODAY!) isn't responding because perhaps he doesn't have the time this time around.

EDIT: Dammit, now I just need to watch some hedgehog videos.

Here's one:

Why, that hedgehog isn't very fast at all. I have been misled!

Serious submissions are typically in bold. Believe me, if you'd bolded your suggestion then Johnny would have listed it, because that fucker errs on the side of caution and lists every submission, no matter how obvious of a joke it is. We have someone almost every round who has to swing by and say "I wasn't serious" when their bullshit ends up listed.

Dammit. If nobody volunteers before voting starts then I'll have to withdraw the nomination

Cute hedgehog, though.

I have had much less time for TT recently, but I will still humbly submit Top 50 Star Trek Episodes and if it somehow wins the poll will find a way to make the time.

EDIT - Oh, I'm too late. Oh well, hopefully for next time.
