Warning! This Commercial May Not be Viewed After October 6

OK, whoa. Christopher Walken? In a commercial? For the Colorado Lottery? OK, not really, It's an impressionist but still. And this impressionist might be this commercial's only redeeming quality. With a juggling monkey and a giant on a pogo stick as the only other choices in this WAY TOO BUSY commercial for scratch tickets (yea, we had to watch a few times to see what the hell the commercial was for), we'll take a Walken impressionist anytime.

Created by Cactus, the best part if this spot is the disclaimer which reads, "Please note that this spot can only be promoted online through Oct. 6. Starting Oct. 7, this spot must be pulled from all websites, or responsible parties may be subject to talent usage fees. If you have any questions, please contact Cactus PR Director Ashley Boyden at 303-455-7545."

Those damn royalty fees!

Sorry, even from that tiny screenshot one can tell the "impressionist" is FAR too young to mimic a present day Walken. Walken without seasoning is just a quirky young dick, and nobody cares about those. Even Walken himself played it much straighter in his youth.

Not... gonna... click. :)

WTF you talking about "too busy." That's a solid commercial - funny, good product mentions, and it will get attention.
