In an article that feels absolutely perfect for our 'random' tag, and as a great way to wind down on a Friday afternoon, we present to you this rather alarming Toad video.
Before we explain what's going on (if that's possible) and before you see it for yourself, note that this little clip has been shared by an official Nintendo account. The video comes from Nintendo's Line account - an instant messaging app that's incredibly popular in Japan - and, at first glance, it's absolutely bonkers.
We've shared it for all to see on our Twitter account. Make sure to turn your sound on as you experience Toad enjoying a good foot pressing.
While Toad's enjoyment levels seem to be creepily off the charts here, watching the video to the end reveals that the person is actually making him do sit-ups, and not whatever you were thinking at first. What a time to be alive.
So, we'll never be able to look at Toad the same way ever again. But how about you? Share your current emotions with us in the comments below.
Toad getting toed.
Toad is coming back Everywhere in Every Nintendo Game now.
Six pack Toad
Nintendo, don't give me an idea to create.....
Can I unwatch this?
People often point out that "sex appeal sells products" in marketing but a close second is also "weirdness sells products" too.
Uhm. Uh. Uh....... Japan?????
To quote AVGN: What were they THINKING?!?!
..for real though, they got a chuckle out of me at least. But please don't give Toad footsie ever again Nintendo. Kthnxbye
Those are not press-ups. They're dips.
That’s hilarious! 😂 I immediately knew he was doing exercises, haha.
Can’t wait to get my hands on the VR Kit later this weekend... I should practice my (already pretty good, I must say) Toad impression in the meantime.
Toad dating sim when?
...Dirty jokes aside, I hope this spawns fan art of Swole Toad wrestling Swole Dedede. Toad probably kept his stubby legs, too.
Or you could do both, like Toad here
That is just disturbing but sooo Japanese
By doing just 100 push-ups, 100 sit-ups, 100 squats and 10 kilometers of running every day, you could look as good as One Punch Toad.
We're talking a Japanese commercial here. That's the stuff of legends. Including epic sagas like this one (length warning... video length warning, I mean): https://youtu.be/6-1Ue0FFrHY
wish i didnt live in a world where "toad cbt" is an official nintendo video instead of a joke id put on my twitter account but here we are
Well this is definitely nightmare fuel
I love Nintendo. They're so crazy.
Okay, i quickly recreate Six pack Toad after i watched the video just now and .....
Voila ! 😆
@Anti-Matter Okay, that is an epic drawing. I'll take five.
@Anti-Matter wow. That looks good. You got talent there. Do a mario
Just imagine if all the resources and talent being wasted on this was being used to:
If toads arms moved with his head, that would have been more clear. And if toad also was not just a stick
@TossedLlama You rang?
I've said this once before, but I'm not gonna look at Toads the same way again.
Just imagine if all the resources and talent being wasted on this comment was being used to:
produce more quality comments.
improve the barebones, barely working comment.
a new dock sku to boost the comment into 2019
@AlohaPizzaJack Beat me to it! XD
Someone in their social media dept being silly has no bearing on R&D...
Look, if Toad can hide under TWO princess' dresses and take all manner of shots when called upon, he can take repeated crotch-presses, it's that simple
I'm waiting for someone to edit Toad's Mario Kart 64 screams over this
@SamuraiPanda That's stepping on Donald Trump's weewee.
Nintendo gives a whole new meaning to PUMP you up.
@ryancraddock Still not sit-ups. That's absolutely not the movement for sit-ups. He would be showing his abs at the end, not his arms, if it was sit-ups. The movement is called a "dip" (or bench dip).
Toad gets sexually aroused by feet.
Toad one step closer to getting that coochie
That's Kinopio-Kun, not Toad.
I don't understand the confusion. It's obvious he is doing situps, I gathered that from the article thumbnail. The noises are just him grunting from the situps... And they show him ripped at the end. Humans are weird.
@Ryu_Niiyama It's not sit-ups tho. Have you ever done sit-ups? lol
@RazumikhinPG It is cardboard... it is very obvious that it approximates doing situps. Is your complaint that a cardboard toy is not anatomically correct?
Uh yeah, 100 before bed every night, your point?
@Ryu_Niiyama It approximates doing bench dips. Your arms don't get bigger doing sit-ups. Nothing to do with cardboard.
Not sure 100 sit-ups is the best thing you wanna be doing before going to bed, as it will impact your sleep cycle.
@Anti-Matter that’s absolutely fantastic!!! Mind if I join?
@sikthvash And three square meals a day. I assume he had no hair to start with.
Why do I need to go to twitter to see a video?
Oh, I see Toad is into that kind of punishment. You learn something new about someone every day.
Well, that's enough internet for one day...
Toad is into feet and pain? My hero!
I think it's absolutely fantastic!
Excuse Me. I can't even right now.
I like how Toad very clearly says “F*** me!” at the start.
I need more of that in my life 😹
He’s giving Toad the ol’Kinopio special
Needs a Tingle version to break the internet.
Never knew Toad was into feet
Didnt expect to see that fetish in a ninty vid.
And at the end, he's a big, veiny, mushroom-headed ahem ... toad.
Yea, not misleading at all
@RazumikhinPG How do you do a dip with your arms behind your head?
In a quote from Squidward in SpongeBob SquarePants:
''Um...I think I need to take a shower...
I'm personally not into the whole foot pressing scene, but hey I'm not judging.
@RazumikhinPG But you can tell from the sleeves that the arms are going up towards the back of the head, and not down towards the floor, e.g. the sit up position.
@Assassinated and the movement of the hips shows it's not a sit up position because in the sit up position the glutes never leave the ground.
(what do the sleeves have to do with it?)
Sometimes even Toad needs a little foot action to get motivated to mow the lawn.
@nhSnork I never saw those commercials before. That was better than a lot of movies I've seen!
Mr. Steal your girlfriend
@RazumikhinPG So basically we've established it can't be a sit up or a dip, so maybe he is doing it for pleasure after all.
@Assassinated Nah, it's a dip. That's why he shows his arms at the end.
Lol, those japanese...
