A fairly lengthy write-up accompanied last week’s Commercial Flashback. This entry, however, will be pointedly brief. Why is that? Because… well, just watch the video:
…what the f**k is that?! Upon revisiting this commercial I realize there is nothing I can write about it that can be grounded to logic. Are you disturbed? Will you be able to sleep tonight? Let me know what you think, because I’m speechless. All I can say is that this is the only time I’ve seen a game pitched to consumers via maniacal laughter and ostriches, and it’s both truly original and truly terrifying. Is it a marketing mishap or are you going to rush back in time and purchase Final Fantasy IV simply because of how AWESOME this ad is?
