Favorite commercial of that era was for a sega baseball game, where a guy hits a triple and stops on 3rd base and gives gun fingers to a girl in the stands who says "Hey Ricky!" then he gets hit in the junk with a baseball.

SEGA!

Markoff_Cheney: Aw jeeze, I checked the thread first and figured these were NES and SNES era at the latest, not a bunch of N64 and on commercials.


You know what? farking kids have no excuse today. YouTube also has all the old NES clips. There is no reason to believe the world was invented when you were five.
This isn't like how I had to spend the next 20 years of my life uncovering all the pop culture references and musical cues in old Warner Brothers cartoons that came out 40 years before I was born.
