Commercial For Line Of Girl's Engineering Toys Features Giant Rube Goldberg Machine, Beastie Boys 'Girls' Parody
SHOES OFF THE FURNITURE.
This is a commercial for GoldieBlox, a new line of engineering toys aimed at girls. The ad features a giant Rube Golderg machine (designed by the same guy who created the one for OK Go's music video and not designed by women like it should have been) and is set to a parody of the Beastie Boy's 'Girls'. The Rube Goldberg machine (which takes up nearly the entire whole house and yard) is really impressive. The song? The song carries an important message, I'm just not sure it's a message best delivered in a Beastie Boys parody. It was no 'You Gotta Fight For Your Right to Math and Science,' I can tell you that.
Hit the jump for the commercial, then buy your daughter some educational toys this Christmas and save the pony for me.
Thanks to Monkey Commandant, who agrees American Girl dolls are everything that's wrong with the girl's toy industry. Plus they cost a fortune and my parents will only buy me one a year.
