I remember buying this the weekend it was released. Heh, my parents couldn't have hooked it up if their lives depended on it.

I don't think Nintendo has made a good commercial yet.

You are right.

Thankfully they don't have to.

What? Are you crazy? Nintendo has made some great commercials. The SSBM one, the Yoshi's Island one, and some others that aren't coming to mind.

But anyway.. this commercial is hilarious. I think they should use it again for Wind Waker!

I think the only good commercial for a nintendo game has been Metroid Prime.

What's really sad is I also know the Atari 2600 rap by heart too.

You mean the "it's under fifty bucks but wait there's more! There's a stack of new games at your video store!" ?

Wasn't there a Zelda commercial where the kid that's playing says something like "Which ... way ... to ... go?"

The Metroid Prime commercials are some of the best commercials that I have ever seen period.
