Walmart's TV commercials are usually rather boring. This weekend things changed dramatically. The new Walmart Clown Commercial is hilarious and has dark humor in it that is definitely not for everyone to stomach.
I stumbled over the Walmart Clown Commercial first on the Unruly Media Viral Videochart. After watching it, I thought it is a spoof, but it looks like it really ran on TV.
The video is in 5th place in the viral charts right now. I guess it would rank much higher if there were a single video upload. Fans of the commercial blast Youtube with uploads of the Clown video (watch it below).
I do not want to spoil the fun watching this Walmart ad for the first time. Just watch it below to see what happens. Walmart promotes with the ad that you can buy everything for a kids party at Walmart and save.
This type of dark humor commercial is actually ideal for Super Bowl. Walmart is not yet listed on any Super Bowl 2010 advertiser lists, but maybe the retail giant is making a last minute surprise.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
