New Toy Story 3 "Groovin' With Ken" Video
06.01.10 by BJSprecher
So far, all of Pixar's promotional material for Toy Story 3 has focused on the "escape movie" plot, with the latest poster and featurette referencing the 1963 classic, The Great Escape, and the three new trailers serving as "player" profiles in the toys' quest to break out of the Sunnyside Daycare.
However, Pixar's latest video release "breaks" from the escape angle to offer up a faux documentary on one of the new toy stars, Barbie's better half, Ken (voiced by Michael Keaton). The hilarious video is made to look like a lost video from the '70s, complete with a lead-in countdown, grainy "film" footage, disco music and scrappy cuts. Even the animation looks more like the stop-motion animation of the '70s than Pixar's fluid CG animation.
