Been watching a few old commercials:

Sonic 2 "infomercial" commercial:

Comments are saying the announcer is Mark Elliott, too.

"Dairy Food"

I've been looking for this one for years and someone finally uploaded it: the Pac-Man 2 "special friend" commercial

It's kind of astounding how they advertised the game by comparing it to abusing an intellectually disabled kid. The 90s were weird!

Wow, that is incredibly offensive. Whoever designed or approved that ad should not be working in advertising or corporate environments.

Never saw these commercials back in the day. That infomercial spoof is hilarious, a lot of WTF moments. Tackle box? Dog sweater sold separately? Lol.

Also interesting that the signature Sega scream wasn't in use yet. Thanks for sharing!

I've been playing a lot of GameCube lately, so I've been looking up old commercials too.

This is an extended cut of a classic. They used this, and then shrunk it down and diced it up as needed.
