Favorite Atari 2600 commercial ever?

Recommended Posts

The Fly is my favorite. It is just...Wow!

 

The song for that Centipede commercial I have on an mp3 player with only 1980s music and commercials.

 

Another one I like that I don't think has been mentioned yet is the ET Christmas commercial. I think it is really sweet.

OH NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO (screams from Mt. Everest)

 

I also vote for the MTV ads and the Star Wars one, "I'M JUST GONNA LOOK AT A POP-UP BOOK FOR A MINUTE! AAAAAAAH!" And then the Wolf of Wall Street joke...

This past Halloween, I hosted/MC'd a stage show in costume as Luigi... I kept "looking for my brother". Talking about how the last time I saw him, he and his helpless girlfriend were taking mushrooms and trying to climb into the toilet. I hopped up onstage between some of the acts with a cry of "Mario... where aaaaare you?!" At curtain call, one of my castmates finally popped out, in matching costume, as Mario.

 

After the show, THREE different audience members came over to tell us how much they loved that commercial.

 

It wasn't some of you folks in disguise, was it?

One that only the UK Atari peeps may recognise, Trevor Brooking (West Ham footballer) and Morecambe and Wise (comedy duo) in the 80s:

Might be the video quality, but looks like they might have played with the tint or color on the TV screen to make the maze look darker. What should be green and red strips on the bottom aren't so green and red either. :lol:

Surprised nobody's posted Spiderman yet!

 

 

Spider-Man! I forgot about that one! I think they re-used the concept in 2002 for a later Spider-Man game commercial.

Yeah, and Spider-Man has gotta be my favorite Atari commercial of all time due to how crazy the guy playing the Goblin is acting. He's up there with Willem Dafoe. Can you say, original Swayzak?
