Walmart continues to charge ahead in promoting their in-store Pickup service. If you've been to a Walmart recently the bright orange corner of the building is hard to miss. Thanks to tips from Survivefan23 and Flashwave we're seeing a new commercial specifically promoting the Grocery Pickup service. And what a video this is! Several famous TV and Movie vehicles pull into a Walmart parking lot as associates bring out their orders. We also see the Ecto-1 with Slimer and Jurasic Park SUVs with dinosaurs terrorizing employees, Cinderella turning a pumpkin into a carriage, and Scooby-Doo pulling an bags into the back of the Mystery Machine. And then Bumblebee, straight from his own movie, jumps into action complete with a Michael Bay "bwomp" sound effect. There's a lot going on in this video, but if you just want to see Bee's part they've put together a shorter video of him alone urging customers to "transform the way you shop."




What do you think of the video? How many of the vehicles do you recognize? Sound off in the Energon Pub below.

Also note that during the Golden Globes there were at least 3 different versions of said commercial with different vehicles swapped in and out, but pretty sure Bee appeared at least briefly in all of them.

The Golden Globes? Like, actually presented there or just sponsored ads on TV? :-?

thanks to conventions, I've "met" most of these vehicles!! :P

granted most were fan built replicas but they looked identical and in the case of the Ben Affleck Batmobile, I got to see the real one on the WB Studio tour last summer.
(something anyone who's a movie fan and in LA should try out!)

but yeah very cool and fun commercial.

Ah Walmart the place we love and hate. Nostalgia is one helluva drug ain't it?

I will say that their grocery pickup is a phenomenal service and takes a lot of the frustration out of shopping there, but now how am I supposed to justify a TF hunt while grocery shopping? get there before the pickup is due, that's how

Expect to see a lot more grocery stores (including independents) offering pickup and delivery in the near future ;)^

This is definitely a Super Bowl commercial. Bumblebee was cool. Also KITT!

Some would be harder to place like the Griswold's station wagon. Still it reminded me of Lego Dimensions with everything from the Flintstone's cavemobile to the hover converted Delorean.
