    Caution: Do not watch Avatar on tv if you are a christian!

    • Erick I

      Avatar was a Great Series. Too bad it’s over. Just hope they don’t mess up the live action movie.

  • Siveambrai

    Aww. I really wish I had a tiny hippo in my house. I’m in their natural environ!

  • Michael

    Damn, I was convinced until the end.

    Actually, I will selectively ignore the last few sentences and insist that house hippos do exist. Clearly they must, because that video says so.

    • Janet Greene

      Exactly. And if you want proof – I put pairs of socks in the dryer, but single socks come out. Clearly, it’s the house hippo scrounging for bedding material. So that’s my evidence. And if I have doubts, I will remind myself that if my faith is not strong, and I do not believe in the house hippo in the moment that I die, I will end up for eternity in burning hippo excrement. I believe this because it says so in my hippo-cratic bible. The hippo says it, I believe it, and that settles it.

        Post-script to my last comment – Daniel Florien, this ad is clearly from the devil trying to make people lose thier faith. It seems satanist to me. Anyone else???

    Of course this ONLY applies to TV. TV is evil. Books are different. If it says it in a book, it must be true. And, the older that book is, the more true it is. Well except for that whole Gilgamesh thing… lolz crazy babylonians.

  • David B.

    Fantastic! I wouldn’t mind tiny hippos infesting my apartment though. My closet would start to smell after awhile though.

  • ZenMonkey

    What a great PSA: cute, funny, and makes an important point without being preachy. Bravo. I’d love to see more like this.

  • Bailey

    Now I kind of want a house hippo :(
    Good message, really well-made video to boot.

  • Tim

    I remember when this commercial first aired in 1999. Back then, nobody could have convinced me that it would have such a significant message for me regarding my deconversion. Of course, back then, nobody could have convinced me that I would deconvert.

    By the way, pretty good special effects for 1999, imo.

  • Jennie Fiddes

    This commercial created an entire generation of children who wanted a pet hippo. I remember going to school and talking about it with all my friends for weeks. Not bad for a commercial!

    I once had hippos in my house.
