Retro Game Commercial-Palooza!

River Raid

So poeTV pointed out this original Tetris commercial, which offered you the option of being Tetricized. Which just sounds perverse. I especially love the introduction of the various shapes for people who, like me, were educated in Alabama. Very kind of them.

Watching this got me thinking…what about all of my other favorite games of yore? What commercials did they have? Would I remember them? Did I have a childhood at all and was it all implanted memories as it was recently revealed I am just a walking NASA experiment?

The Brutal and Illegal World of Underground Tetris Block Fighting

Tetris Block Fighting

It’s not enough that these poor Tetris blocks basically plummet down into a big ditch, manipulated six ways from Sunday, only to have bits of them vaporized as they fill a complete line, is it? No, of course not. Now we have them brawling in the street for the amusement of sadistic Tetris block breeders.

You. Heartless. Bastards.
