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.
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?
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.
