    I know these are just NES games, but if you guys do a SNES commercial page, please put up the U.S. commercial for Super Mario RPG! I can't seem to find it anywhere and I haven't seen it since the commercial originally aired when the game came out in the 90's!!:( I just loved that old man in it, lol.

    "Sweet graphics! I'd love to get my hands on that game!" Gets me every time. Sounds like the kind of things you should say while reading a porno magazine. Feel free to change "graphics" and "game" to your word of choice.

    Too bad we don't see this kind of stuff in commericals today. Companies have gotten lazy and sorry these days.

    That second Zelda rap is the absolute best. I wonder why they stopped making dances for game commercials. lol

    Haha I totally remember the Gameboy Witch Doctor commercial. That bit with mario dancing in the fire was just a bit freaky

    80s commercials are weird.

    I seriously love the ****ing hell out of that Japanese "Link to the Past" commercial- it's so absurd, goofy and positively dripping with 90's funk that I can't get enough of it lol

    Why did the words in all the Japanese ads sound like Patapon?
  • rav3 - February 10, 2010 12:44 a.m.

    Im pretty sure the Kirby ad is not from Spain but Mexico, the guy speaking lacks the spanish accent

    If you hate Nintendo, don't read Nintendo articles. Simple as that.
  • sleepy92ismypsn - February 10, 2010 12:31 a.m.

  • IAmIke - February 10, 2010 12:26 a.m.
