Default First look at Animated Wreck-Gar in video advert

Here is an advert from Cartoon Network for Transformers Animated. The advert features the arrival of Sentinel Prime on Earth, along with the Elite Guard, and also shows a brief clip of Junkion (Wreck-Gar). Junkion is voiced by Weird Al, in a link to the original Transformers The Movie show. Video below...

I'm assuming this is a recent commercial, right? Is the time wrong for anyone else? It plays out here (US Central Time) at 9:30, but the commercial says 11 Eastern (that would be 10 Central). Is it just my local cable company delaying things, or is CN wrong in the commercial?
(Totally unimportant. I'm just curious.)

Yeah it is supposed to be a recent commercial. It comes on at 7AM here on the west coast.

The commercial is from YTV the Canadian Channel that shows TF Animated. It's been showing TFA a bit longer than Cartoon Network. Just to let you guys know

That commerciel is revolting. The shows good but some people would have to get past that vile ad first if they had never seen it before.

The real show shines through but its a rubbish ad that Animated dosnt deserve.

If that really is Weird Al, it was a good idea of the cartoon's staff to hire him for this role! Can't wait to see this episode .

YTV has that stupid voice actor for all of their show ads. He's still not as bad as the host of their morning show that comes on during the commercial breaks though.

As horrid as that commercial may be to us, I'd imagine it appeals to their actual target audience fairly well. I always tape the show since I have a meeting while it airs. Even fast forwarding through the commercials, I get a headache from them. My children, however, want to rewind and watch the commercials again sometimes. Kids these days...

This does not interest me. It's way too cartoony. Or should I not judge on the animation alone? Because usually I notice that if I do, it works out pretty good.

Is that an item of female underwear Wreak Gar is holding? I am shocked and appalled at the thought of our children being exposed to the idea women wear underwear and shall be writing a sternly worded letter to my MP.
