Look at this wee dick.

Anyway, thought I'd make a thread for video game company promos, as Nintendo have cranked out a couple in the last few days. Here's the latest advert for the Nintendo Switch:



It's a good effort that I think does a convincing job of selling the 'play anywhere, anytime, with anyone' idea. That's more than what can be said about this utter dug meat:



If anybody's got an advert chat or wants to stick up old adverts here, fire away.

I know it's mean to call kids "wee dicks", but, Cappa, you're absolutely right. It's on par with the "kids love to stay up late!" holiday park thing a few years back. And I couldn't bring myself to click on the WiiU one - brrrrrr...
And remember, if you're Japanese, you get to be racist - it's cute!

OK - Old-school Zelda ads are the blurst:

Now this is how you advertise Zelda!


But maybe not this


BUT THIS IS
(OH GOD I REMEMBER THE UK VERSION OF THIS ADVERT I THOUGHT I HAD IMAGINED IT AS IT WASN'T ON YOUTUBE LIKE A YEAR AGO*)

*don't look at the upload date

There was a line in NGamer, maybe even from earlier than that and reprinted in one of the free books, that said the NES' marketing budget was just a man running around Brighton in a red tracksuit saying "games . . . games . . ." under his breath, and that's an image I've never gotten out of my head. Absolute gold.

I unironically love the Zelda rap advert. Brilliance.

Catastrophe. I'm not putting those adverts in this thread, no chance. He doesn't deserve the coverage. What a fud.

Youse can have this instead though.

When we work out which era of Nintendo adverts were the worst, the answer that we will come up with will be "all of them".

Found this shiter:



Highlights for me are the advert voiceover man having a breakdown saying "SPRINGSPRINGSPRINGSPRING" to mimick the guy chucking shurikens at his TV or the poor lass who was probably paid with a Greggs sausage roll and a discoloured copy of Super Mario Land 2 to say "I want to watch the teevee naooow".

During research for the poorly chosen and awkward first day of Mariopalooza, I came across these two cracking old Donkey Kong ads.

Er... wow.

Thoughts there: 1) that Colecovision port of DK's pretty damn good. 2) That's an elaborate set for the DKJR ad! 3) I miss when Mario had a hat and was from the 1920s.

I want Mario to return to being a literal moustache-twirling villain. Bonus points if he begins his sentences with "nyeeeeeh, y'see..."

Ahhhhh the memories! Grin The drive thru one is an absolute classic.

EDIT: That last one sounds like he's been dubbed a wee bit.

How SEGA sold Shenmue in the US of A and with all the OG Xbox goodness coming to the Xbox One, made me think of this.

Jings. I'd only ever read about that in magazines. Whoever approved that advert should be cannoned out of a fanny themselves.

Haha! I have to admit, that gave me a chuckle. The first half even did a pretty good job of selling the game.

I knew what that was gonna be before I clicked, but still enjoyed giving it a watch. That's a pretty good message, to be fair.

I had that banned ad on a promo disc handed out with one of the game magazines back in the day. It'll also had this delight of a promo for Xbox Live on it.

I love this guy's network of world-wide friends and their incredibly stereotypical gamertags.
