Following up on its much buzzed about Super Bowl ad, Parisian Love, Google has added yet another new classic search story to its collection. Using soundbites from the Toy Story film trilogy, Google has cooked up Toy Story: The Discovery in honor of the release of Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3.

Don’t forget to pause the video at about the :33/:34 second mark. You might catch a little easter egg from the Google Bunny involving a certain lucky charm for Pixar hamming it up a bit.

Search on.

Yet Another ‘Toy Story 3′ Hi-Res Still (I’m a Hugger!)

It turns out that when we raided the toy box earlier this week to bring you 20 new hi-res images from Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3, we just didn’t dig deep enough. It turns out lucky number 21 features the gang when they first encounter Lotso and some of the many new friends at Sunnyside Daycare. You can even spot the Lightning McQueen toy at Woody’s feet.

Toy Story 3 Clip: ‘Rough Play’ (A Comcast Cable Exclusive)

LGM, meet Butt. Butt, meet LGM.Director Lee Unkrich introduces this clip which was released recently as an exclusive to Comcast Cable subscribers (although it was placed on the internet for all to see).

The clip, which features many bits and pieces that have been seen before in ads and the trailers for Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3 (not to mention the Aflac ad), is an extended look at what happens when the gang, fresh off the box to Sunnyside Daycare, meet their new play hosts, in a tip o’ the hat to the old adage be careful what you wish for. It’s full of great visual gags, especially in regard to those poor LGMs — I’m particularly fond of the LGM + Slinky Dog formula myself.
