Dragon Blaster Skeletor

Sometimes I see something on the Web and all I can think is, "Bless you, YouTube."

This 1980s ad for Dragon Blaster Skeletor cracks me the heck up. See, apparently Skeletor wears a dragon thing as a kind of ... backpack? And you can take its head off and fill it with water? And then turn it into a squirt gun? And squirt harmless WATER at your friends' Masters of the Universe action figures, and they have to pretend it's some kind of deadly acid, unless they have Roboto, the creepy robot figure, who is unharmed by water? (Really, wouldn't a robot be MORE harmed by water?)

The look on the one kid's face as his action figure is getting squirted is priceless. A young Ashton Kutcher practices his method acting?

That kid who "freezes" is totally Jamie from Small Wonder.
