Smyths Toys Superstores have brought back their little boy Oscar for an encore performance of his ‘If I Were a Toy’ song with new lyrics in this new Smyths Toys advert.
This year’s CGI ad shows Oscar acting as both conductor and singer in a theatre showcase of the latest and most popular toys available this Christmas, which also include such classic favorites as Barbie, and Toy Story’s Buzz and Woody.
Advert Music: If I Were A Boy (reworded cover).
Original Artist: Beyonce.

As was the case with this retailer’s previous ‘If I Were a Toy’ TV ad back in 2016, this 2019 Smyths Toys advert song is again a reworded cover of American singer Beyonce’s 2008 track ‘If I Were A Boy’. This year’s version of the commercial now includes lyrics to fit in such words as pajamas, lamas, and monster trucks.
If I Were A Boy was taken from former Destiny’s Child star Beyonce’s third studio album ‘I Am… Sasha Fierce’ and gave her a number 1 hit on the UK singles chart.
