The link is the RED line under title below picture. It will take you to YouTube to watch the video of that commercial. After you view that video you will find other (related) videos of same genre. Click on Blue 'Back Arrow' (top left) to return to this page/list.

You can right click RED link and do 'Copy Shortcut' and paste it to a notepad list so you can watch videos later. You right click and 'copy' shortcut link you saved in notepad and paste it into YouTube SEARCH window.

Can't seem to find the links to any of the ads... where are they hiding?

I enjoyed this one. Many I remember, some I missed and others, I was too young. I didn't realize the NES was that old. I always thought 1985 or 86.

Thanks for posting.

edit: I was right. NES was released in 1985 in N.A.. I think that caption meant to say "Plimpton disses Atari".

Apple is the company in the 1984 commercial. They truly are big brother - no ports to export your data (I mean standard), very little customization, unopenable cases, etc.

It is Lenovo and Dell and HP and Samsung and htc that are trying to rescue us from the horrid big brother.

Steve Ballmer's sports coat makes the $99 Windows ad. You can't deny his enthusiasm.

And I think Verizon is on something with Suzie's lemonade (new commercial) - surprised they don't have more VZW products in the spots though.

How could they forget the reply all commercial from Superbowl XLV?

Probably better than the Justin Beiber commercial

I may not like the PS3, but that "Michael" commercial is awesome. Although, I think it'd be even better if it was Matthew, but that's just me!

At the time of this was a Superbowl Commercial. This company can suck my dick (as can Ross Perot). Hey you have all seen those movies/TV shows that sacrifice their employees for a better profit margin. That is these guys. Fuck You EDS, I will Never make money for you again.

Can't forget the Pioneer bridge commercial from '94:

Classic - it won the CLIO Award in '95.

I remember a hilarious parody commercial of Maxell's Blown Away Guy where the speakers were so strong that they blew the guy's head right off!

From the movie Stay Tuned Warner Bros. 1992 starring John Ritter Pam Dawber Jeffrey Jones and Eugene Levy. The Parody advertised Max Hell cassette tapes.

LOL MW3's Commercial - best commercial yet worst Map pack ever

I preferred Halo ODST commercial over Believe personally. Master Chiefs funeral was hard to watch.

"Plimpton Disses NES

1981

George Plimpton was a celebrated sports writer who staked his ultimate claim to fame by competing, if momentarily, at the top level of several professional sports. Mattel figured he was talented enough to pitch Intellivision baseball too, and that's just what he did in this NES slam."

Ummm... The Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) didn't even exist yet at the time of that commercial...

Nintendo isn't mentioned anywhere in the commercial...

He was digging at Atari, not Nintendo...

This article would have been so much better with video instead of still pictures.

MaxPC would probably have their asses sued off if they did.

It was that P4 commercial that got me in to the Blue Man Group.

Good article. Although I'm not sure The Vet and the N00b released in 1984.....
