Would this have prompted more Americans to purchase a TurboDuo?

Probably not, but it couldn’t have hurt.

The folks at NEC (or TTI) would have had to redo the commercial’s song, though, since I can’t make out most of what’s being said in the current version.

I can hear, “let’s spend the night together!” at the beginning, for instance, and the next thing I can make out is, “together having fun”–which comes just before the oh-so-cheerful chorus. The only other part I understand is the last line: “Look on the bright side of your life!”

All that said, I’ve watched the darn thing about 10 times now, so clearly it can be enjoyed quite a bit despite the language difficulties.

‘Welcome to Splatterhouse’ (and other ‘classic’ PC Engine commercials)

This recent tinycartridge.com post prompted me to spend some time this morning scanning YouTube for “classic” PC Engine commercials.

I think the following one–used to promote Namco’s Splatterhouse–is my favorite.

Of course, Hudson’s corny and over-the-top Gunhed ad is pretty fabulous, too.

And then there’s this one, produced by the folks at Hudson to promote PC Genjin.

What are your favorite PC Engine (or TurboGrafx-16) commercials?

Word of mouth made the PC Engine popular, didn’t it?

That’s the only conclusion I could come to after watching the following commercials.

Honestly, I’d be hard-pressed to say one of them is worse than the others, as all of them are pretty horrendous.
