Somewhere in the ancient ruins of Egypt,
lies a horde buried deep beneath the desert sands.
An unnatural force, bent on destruction,
not dead, not alive and nothing can stop them.
The new video game from the makers of Extreme Gamma Cube -
Dark Bunny, Revenge Of The Moomies.
It's milking time!
Cool! I've gotta have that.
-How are you gonna afford it?
-I could ask my parents for it.
They'll say if I really want it,
I have to buy it with my own money.
If I bought everything I wanted, I'd have to have so many jobs,
-I'd have no time to play with what I'd bought.
-Just like grown-ups.
Hey, I know how you can buy that game! Come on...
Just like I figured, you are sitting on a gold mine.
I don't get it, it's a bunch of junk.
Ssh! Not junk, merchandise.
You can sell this stuff on the school newspaper's website.
They've got a section for online ads.
Hey, I remember these.
You write a description of what you want to sell,
set up a contact box and submit it.
But who'll want this old stuff?
You'd be surprised. Some people will buy anything.
HE MAKES AIRPLANE NOISES
-How much do you want for it?
-This is gonna be easy!
Nice job, honey.
Writing an ad. I'm selling my old toys in the school's online paper.
Pee-yew. I hope whoever buys this stuff likes stinky toys.
OK, OK, but that hippo needs a bath.
For sale, lots of old toys -
if interested, e-mail ToyGuy22.
COMPUTER: 'ToyGuy22, you have no mail.'
'ToyGuy22, you have no mail.'
'No mail... No mail.'
I don't get it, why isn't anything selling?
I'll tell you why. There's no oomph.
You don't sell the steak, you sell the sizzle.
I told you Muffy would be able to help.
-But I'm selling toys.
For sale, lots of old toys...
Ho-hum, you'll never make a sale with that pitch.
-I thought it was OK.
-"OK" doesn't move merchandise.
You need SPECTACULAR!
Who's your market?
-What about product branding? Where's the eye candy?
Boy, do I have my work cut out!
A picture is worth 100 words.
You mean a thousand.
Nah, this camera only has three megapixels.
Layout is important. An ad must be easy to read with bright colours
that grab the buyer's attention.
Now, description - adjectives are key, but you can't say just anything.
You need to know the lingo.
You don't say old, you say retro.
You don't say banged-up, you say well-loved.
If something's a total wreck, you say needs "TLC" or "handyman special".
Wow! You made all that in one day?!
I sold just about everything.
-Even the Woogle.
-Yeah, they needed it to complete their set.
They paid you money for it?!
I've got merchandise that's not moving but I need the right hook.
OK, no more Mr Nice Guy, it's time to pull out the aggressive tactics -
-You think Bionic Bunny really loves doodles?
He's paid to say that!
Don't tell Buster, it'd crush him!
So, who do you know who's famous?
-He might work if you're selling chickens!
Come on, we need someone really famous.
That's it, I don't know anyone else.
Oh...OK, let's move onto rave.
That's drumming up business in chat rooms or
by talking on the phone where people can overhear you about a product,
saying how great it is, blah, blah.
I'd do it for you, but you can't afford my fee.
Hey, I thought you'd like to know where you can get some cool toys.
ToyGuy22 is selling stuff you can't get anywhere else
and the prices are super cheap.
Why are you yelling about yourself?
These toys aren't selling. I'm not any good at raves.
I can't afford to hire Muffy to do them.
Eugh, DW is right. It is kind of smelly.
Stuffed hippo for sale, smells just like the real thing.
-I can't say it's broken...
No-one would buy that.
Wait, I know! Robotron for sale,
perfect for display.
I've got it...
Toy soldiers for sale, new, larger size. What a bargain.
Larger size?! You just put it in a bigger box!
DW, you just don't understand marketing.
Maybe - but I sure know what lying sounds like.
It's not lying, it's advertising!
Wow! This is so cool.
Well, that's the last of your inventory.
-Wahoo! I've got enough money for Moomies.
You must be the world's greatest salesman. How did you get James
to buy a Robotron that loses its arms and legs when you move it?
Well, I left that part out of my ad. I said it was for display purposes.
-Hey, Arthur, there's something wrong with this Robotron.
Arthur just forgot to mention it. He'll give you your money back.
Technically, Arthur, you're under no obligation to return any funds.
As long as Arthur didn't lie, James doesn't have a leg to stand on.
Neither does his Robotron.
You'll give him his money back, right?
Let the buyer beware, I always say.
-Arthur, you can't do that.
I said "display purposes".
Think how we felt when we got a toy that wasn't what we thought it'd be.
Like those Sea Squirrels, remember?
That doesn't look like a squirrel.
It looks like something my baby sister spit up.
But it's not like I said... "action figure" or something.
I said "for display purposes".
It's bad enough when grown-ups cheat kids, but when kids do it,
it's like a total meltdown of the fabric of our society.
And who needs melty fabric.
Don't worry, James, I'm good at fixing broken toys.
-I've broken tons of them.
Your ad could be seen as misleading, at most it's a misdemeanour.
-The worst you'll get is house arrest.
Wait, I just wanna look at something. I'll be right back.
Good one, James. Good aim.
-Couldn't fix it, huh?
-But Buster thought up a good game to play.
It's called Robotron arm toss.
-You try to get his arm to shoot off and hit the bull's-eye.
So, did you get your Moomie game?
Nope, I got something even better.
Here you go, James. I'm sorry about everything.
What about the Moomies?
We'll get to play it some day.
I just had to see what all the fuss was about.
'Who dares approach the tomb?'
ALL: We do!
'You've been warned! Prepare to meet your Moomie.'
That's it?! That's all you get for 35.95?
Phew, the Sea Squirrels were better than this.
Well, if you ever need someone to sell it for you, don't call me.
'Game over. Game over. Game...'
