Old Video Game Commercials

Postby VideoGameCritic » March 31st, 2018, 11:02 am

I was surfing around YouTube and stumbled up on this set of old video game commercials from the early 80s.

Funny how little they show of the actual games. Did you notice Jack Black in the beginning of the Pitball commercial.
I remember Phil Hartman being in an Ice Hockey Activision commercial:

Any other stars appear in old video game commercials?

I'll never forget that commercial for the original Zelda where the guy is in the insane asylum. Pee-pee-pee-peahats! Which-way-is-up?

That commercial didn't make sense back then during the morning cartoons, and it certainly doesn't make sense now on YouTube!
