Ah the 80’s! They brought us a lot of awesome movies, a lot of awesome music and a lot of questionable fashion ideas…This classic80’s commercial is advertising the brand new Game Genie! It connects to most of your favourite games! I loved having the game genie, the infinite flight cheat you could use for the princess in Super Mario Bros 2 was truly amazing and I remember still struggling to pass contra even with infinite lives!

For those of you that don’t know the game genie was an attachment that would slide onto a NES cartridge and would then allow you to enter a series of codes to unlock certain cheats. The codes themselves were housed in a small game genie book that listed games alphabetically.

This video is hilarious! I love how far marketing has come in just a few short years and whilst I love this ad quite a lot I am thankful that we don’t have to put up with this style of ad on a day to day basis anymore!
