Weirdest Retro Video Game Ads

Back in the ’80s and ’90s video game publishers, developers and manufacturers were doing everything they could to make their product stand out from the crowd. One way to do that was by creating an ad that grabbed your attention. Some ads were successful, but many of them missed the mark completely. Take a look at some of the Weirdest Retro Video Game Ads.
