Evil Maposaurus, Prepare To Meet Your Doom

Say, remember this Garmin commercial that debuted during the 2007 Super Bowl?

I went BANANAS when I saw this loving homage to Japanese giant hero shows in the vein of Ultraman. It's quite the attention getter, and even caught the notice of fans in Japan.

There's also the little matter of the song. I learned it was by Steve Grimmett, a British metal guy probably best known for being in the band Grim Reaper. So perhaps it should come as no surprise that there is a longer version of this commercial presented as a "music video" for Steve Grimmett.
