RetroTube: Best game commercial ever?

July 9, 2007 by · 4 Comments 

Imagine, for a moment, that you’re Nintendo and you’ve just wrapped up development on The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past for the SNES.  Now it’s time to sell the game to the public — a game that would go on to be considered by many as the greatest game of all time.  How do you market it?  Do you tout its wonderful graphics?   Its deep gameplay?  Its massive world to explore?  Its majestic atmosphere?

Apparently not.  Apparently,  you use this travesty…

I think I’ll just pretend that Nintendo knew the game was good enough to sell itself and made this commercial as some sort of twisted joke.  It’s better for the psyche.
