Japanese Michael Jackson as Link

thrillerzelda.jpgHaha, those funny Japanese and their hilarious tv shows and ads. This old commercial on Google Video promoted Zelda on the SNES/Super Famicom way back. I see a bit of Michael Jackson Thriller influence in there, mixed with a catchy beat, special effects and some acting to boot!

Parusing more “Nintendo” videos on Google led me to this hilarious Zelda/NES commercial. It’s geared towards the North American demographc and is just as bad.

I also found this one which was also pointless. I took a second look when it showed Nintendo tighty whiteys ‘er…underwear. What were they thinking? Are these for real? I guess the NES undies are for people who have no self control…ha.

    Heh, the underwear beings new meaning to the term “press the buttons”.

    I was thinking more of the name of my site: Press The Buttons (.com).

    The Japanese ad wins hands down. The US version is just weak in comparison. Then again, thinking back to when I was a kid, the ad still made me drool, so I guess I can’t criticize it too much.

    Also, did you notice the spin move that he does in the Japanese version? I don’t think you could do that in the NES version, but it looked exactly like the one in the SNES Zelda. I just think that’s kind of interesting.

    Matt, understood completely! But we have to throw an innuendo in there too :-)

    Mr. F. – It seemed like the Japanese version had a bigger budget. Although that doesn’t necessarily mean a better ad. I didn’t notice the spin, no.
