Old things are always better – and Team Meat, the developer for Super Meat Boy, understands this. The ultra rad and retro ‘90s commercial for the upcoming Xbox LIVE/WiiWare platformer is packed with embarrassingly fuzzy VHS artifacts, and boldly brags about features, like the ability to “test your skills,” and “push the buttons.” In short, it’s pretty much the best video you’ve seen today. Yes, it’s better than that new Call of Duty: Black Ops teaser we recently posted.
