Oscar is back in this new animated Smyths Toys advert which has landed ready for Christmas and features a young boy singing a cover of the song ‘If I Were A Boy’ with new lyrics.
The commercial by the Superstore showcases many of the toys available to fill the stockings for the festive period. We hear lyrics in the ad such as “If I were a toy, even just for a day. I’d be souring like a rocket shouting to the others, hey let’s play!” and “Take monster truck rides and steal the spotlight, singing harmonies with barbie I’d master the popmaster for sure.” Other lyrics include “I’d build an awesome world from Lego and dance until my batteries were gone.”
