Here's one they should've included

By the way, I don't remember any of these, I wasn't even an embryo at this point. I only put the above one for Butthole Surfers.

I only remembered the Power Glove, and Dr. Mario ones. I still love that Power Glove commercial, and I still hate that Dr. Mario commercial.

Haha. I saw about half of those growing up, caught them during the late 80's and early wirly 90's. I've always hated the US SMB3 commercial.....Especially when you side it with the highly creative and wonderfully epic Japanese version.lol But yup, I prefer the mid 80's NES commercials featuring ROB & LOZ, those are just so cozy, vintage and classic. I don't remember seeing them, but that makes sense because they debuted in 85-86. Butt Dr.Mario, Paper boy, Super Mario Land 1 & 2, Bart simpson vs the space mutants, Tetris, punch-Out!!, SMB.2 ect ect and a few of those magical NES Toys r us commercials bring back the nostalgia in full force. B-)

I wish there was a way to destroy all evidence of the Zelda rap commercial. I find it so grating that I can't even enjoy it on "so bad it's good" terms.

lol i love that commercial. It's too awesome for words. Pairing a stereotypical uuber nerd who oddly enough looks like Brian Pravinciano(Developer of Retro City rampage) with a jean jacket wearing Cool-dudes buddy, who then opens up an oversized jumbo Nintendo magazine followed by an unpredictable hilarious Zelda-rap makes this one of the greatest nintendo commercials to ever grace the mid 80s AirWaves haha. However, I still prefer the other Zelda commercial where that goofy freak shouts out "ZELDA!" and a slew of random LOZ enemy names. :p

They're all outragelously fun, colorful, in your face, full of life and creativity, something you don't see from the unexciting, colorless, bland as hell, life sucking and minimalistic commercials you see nowadays.... Nintendo still makes some decent stuff here and there(most notably their recent 3DS commercials and early early 'Wii would like to play' Wii commercials.), but they still don't hold a candle to their classic 'n crazy NES & SNES commercials imo. that's the 80's and early 90's for ya. the early 90's embodied the 'surfer gamer' which was wonderfully captured in the game genie Bill & Ted inspired commercials! The 80's & early 90's were the pinnacle of imagination baby.

I for one, wish there was a way to destroy that confusing, pathetic, underwhelming, piece of trash Wii U iCarly-tween beat cubicle rave party commercial...Worst nintendo commercial known to video land! The Soccer mom & gramps' DSi XL commecials were painfully cringe worthy as well!
