An Indian TV commercial for the Sega Megadrive, and Sonic comes across as a threatening drug pusher (although in this case the drug is presumably BLAST PROCESSING.)
US TV commercial for Kirby Super Star. This was the theme of a lot of ’90s videogame advertising - videogames are horribly, grotesquely bad for you.
Here’s a commercial for the Wii edition of Resident Evil 4. There’s a joke to be made somewhere comparing the horror of Leon’s predicament to the horrorific acting in this video.
Here’s something a bit lovely - a TV commercial for my favourite Megadrive game ever, Shining Force II.
TV commerical for UFO Kamen Yakisoban. It makes about as much sense as you’d expect an advert for a game about noodle-based superhero to make.
You know when I said that this Mario is Missing advert was the biggest lie in advertising? Well, this trailer for the unspeakably awful Rise of the Robots runs it close. It’s pretty breathtaking in its utter seperation from reality, at least.
