Mario is bigger than Jesus.
Damn, i remember this ad.
I forgot that they managed to put in Close Encounters AND 2001 references back to back in less than 3 seconds.

In terms of blind devotion, late 80s early 90s Nintendo was the closest thing America had to the Hitler Youth. Instead of astronauts, every kid dreamed of becoming a Nintendo game counselor which was really just a shitty minimum wage call center job.
If Nintendo Power had offered a free NES game to any kid who murdered their entire family, they would have done it.
One time I got Nintendo taken away for a month (can't remember why) back in 5th grade, so I skipped school, dug the Nintendo out of my father's closet, and made a mix tape of game themes to carry me through.
At that time, maybe 10% of that crowd even knew who Donkey Kong was.

I was expecting 'The Wizard (Full Movie).' I am disappoint.
