Was that a real game or is it an early SNL commercial parody?
2007-05-22 04:36:09 AM  
I was about to ask the same thing, borg.

It's real, we've got bits and pieces of it in our Monopoly box.

"You're a real ball buster!"

I like how the wife winks knowingly at the end of the commercial. How in the hell did they get that one past the censors?

Well, that link killed fifteen minutes.

Real game. Had one of these at my uncle's house back when I was a kid.

This was sampled in the UNKLE/DJ Shadow track "Getting Ahead in the Lucrative Field of Artist Management" off Psyence Fiction

The announcer just makes sound worse.
2007-05-22 12:01:42 PM  
That announcer sounded like Adam West.
2007-05-22 12:04:14 PM

Donald_McRonald: Anyone remember this?

OMG yes!... The only problem with them is the balloons you had to buy special to put in side.
2007-05-22 01:35:53 PM  
Is it ironic that in the ad, the father ends up losing? Or is it reality posing as irony?
2007-05-22 02:20:03 PM  
Word booty, ccc1138. Once I read the headline I said "please be ballbuster please be ballbuster!!"

/The only peeps who get better sound samples are TRS-80.
2007-05-22 05:21:15 PM  
I still prefer my Orbie "It's High Flyin fast moving super sports winged ball...
2007-05-22 05:47:54 PM

2007-05-22 07:03:03 PM  
Hehehehe! God, I love the announcer's voice. This really made me LOL.
2007-05-22 08:36:49 PM  
Do they have a spin-off game called "Bust a Nut"?
2007-05-22 08:57:40 PM  
hehe.. never heard of it before unkle
2007-05-22 09:11:00 PM  
The wife looks like Elizabeth Montgomery
2007-05-22 09:31:28 PM  
"Ball Buster--it's a family game." And I thought *I* came from a seriously dysfunctional family...
2007-05-22 11:12:16 PM  
I have great difficulty believing that, only 32 years ago, people didn't see the double meaning while watching the commercial and weren't in tears laughing every time the commercial aired.
2007-05-23 12:05:36 AM  
Just watched it again, and I can't get enough of that announcer. "...try to bust your opponent's baaalls". "You're a baaawl buster". Awesome.
2007-05-23 01:13:40 AM  
That announcer is creepy sounding. He sounds like your grandfather.
2007-05-23 03:13:50 AM  
I thought that the object was to have sex with David Johansen.

PassTheProzac: The wife looks like Elizabeth Montgomery

I got a chubby when she winked at the camera.

34-37 seconds in FOR THE WIN
2007-05-23 10:15:45 PM  
Great to see this, it is funny seeing the real thing after hearing it sampled...

I was going to mention UNKLE as well...

... so are there any actual Mr Bungle videos to match the samples in their debut album.
