Concerned Children's Advertisers: The House Hippo!

Does anyone remember the Canadian ad campaign from "Concerned Children's Advertisers"? Well, way back in the day they made the "House Hippo" and I remember seeing this commercial and actually begged my mother to find me a potbelly or teacup style hippopotamus for my own.

He can live off chips, raisins and crumbs from leftover peanut butter toast. If anything, this proved that dreams could come true, but one was left with the crushing truth of there being no such thing.

This commerical made me smile and brought on the late night laughs while they ran the commericals on YTV and laced throughout T.G.I.F shows.

Enjoy my favourite commercial of all time, below :D
