NES: The Legend of Zelda

So this was painful to watch.  Below is a video of the advertisement for The Legend of Zelda on the NES.  I'm not sure what Nintendo wanted people to find appealing about this commercial, but it was the 80s and a lot of ideas that came out of the 80s can not be explained.  I hope you gain a new perspective while watching.

  5. man I loved this game. I've actually been hunting around for a copy of it lately, been putting together a collection for all of my old systems. I wouldn't call it painful, it's really more retro

  10. That advertisement RULED and I wish we had more like that.

    It didn't beat the Zelda rap commercial. That was awesome. It was a punky lookin' kid and a nerd rapping about Zelda. Life was good then.

  12. I remember this commercial, and I think that's the guy who voiced Roger Rabbit if I'm not mistaken.
