The marketing campaign for Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3 has unveiled yet another ingenious series of promos for the film, with plastic man Ken revealing some of his most treasured dating secrets to anyone who cares to listen.
Michael Keaton’s voicework as Ken matches the character’s charmingly shallow mannerisms and fashion sense perfectly, and he continues to look like the most entertaining of the new characters in Toy Story 3. Keaton has long been adored by moviegoers for his turns as Batman and Beetlejuice – the latter of which is a role he’s still interested in reprising – and it looks as though he has another winner in the new Pixar flick as well.
You can check out all three of the “Ken’s Dating Tips” videos below:
In case you missed it, you should check out the “Groovin’ with Ken” promo from last week as well. If nothing else, you have to admire the detail and texture of the animation in these creative ads – which are just as impressively bright and colorful as the actual Toy Story 3 footage we’ve seen so far.
So what do you think? Does Ken look like a worthy addition to the Toy Story franchise? What do you think of Disney/Pixar’s ads for Toy Story 3 in general? Sound off in the comments section below.
Toy Story 3 arrives in regular, 3D, and IMAX theaters in the U.S. on June 18th, 2010.
