What The Hell Atari?

Posted by Earnest "Nex" Cavalli on Tue, Dec 13, 2011 at 10:04 PM

Growing up in the 80s and early 90s I was exposed to a lot of bizarre videogame advertisements. Japan's Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past dance off? The creepy-as-hell proto-CGI NES ad?

That's our collective childhood boys and girls. Shit was weird.

As a result, nothing much from the world of videogame advertising surprises me. At least, that's what I thought before I stumbled on this spot for Atari's home version of Joust. I realize that two minutes is a whole lot of advertisement to sit through, but stay to the end. That's when things get really good.

(And by "really good," I obviously mean "there is no god.")
