Atari 2600 Commercials Featuring Pac-Man and Others

I have a genuine Atari 2600 video game system that I've been wanting to hook up in my living room for the longest time, and I'm hoping this is the month! As inspiration to myself, and for your entertainment, here are a few classic TV commercials for the system and select games, a few of which promote Pac-Man (including a "live action" Ms. Pac-Man). Both JC Penney and Target feature in this collection, as they both offer special deals on the system. The commercial for MegaForce features future Emmy winner Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad)!

Finally, I've posted the Spider-Man commercial several times before, but I can't help posting it again. I love it!

Enjoy! Have a great weekend!

Holy crap that Aussie Ms. Pac Man Commercial was weird. I vividly remember the Spider Man one. That commercial was pretty impressive.. and waaaaaay better than the game was!
