The 12 Most WTF ’90s Nintendo Commercials

1. Pokemon Red & Blue (Gameboy)

Creepy bus driver abducts a bus full of Pokemon, locks them in, and crushes the bus with industrial compactors. Probably directed by Tim Burton after Batman Returns. Watch the commercial here.

2. Pokemon “Ball Busters”

Ad for an unfortunately named Hasbro tie-in toy.

3. Donkey Kong Country (SNES)

4. Yoshi’s Story (N64)

5. Conker’s Bad Fur Day (N64)

Woman gets drunk, makes questionable choices, and beds a rude squirrel. Just another day in the 90’s.

6. Nintendo 64 Christmas Sale (1998)

People complained about their gifts. The economy was good, and it was rad to be snotty. Hear the jingle for yourself.

7. Secret of Evermore (SNES)

A great, underrated game given a gothic nightmare toon treatment.

8. Super Smash Brothers 64

Watch the commercial here.

9. Starfox 64

Man leaps out of diaper van, kidnaps a cadet, tortures a Mario puppet. You’re just gonna have to watch this to figure it out.

10. Zelda: A Link To The Past (SNES)

There’s enough slap-bass in this Japanese rap commercial to knock Seinfeld off air.

12. Perfect Dark (N64)

Perfect Dark’s happening in ten years. Good game, everyone.
