Watch the First Ever “Super Mario Bros.” Commercial
Way back in 1985, before most of the world had ever heard of Nintendo, this commercial aired. Super Mario Bros. turns 30-years-old this year, so why not look back on where it all began: just a simple plumber, eating mushrooms, running as far right as he can.
The rough translation, provided by uploader Satoshi Matrix, reads:
“It’s the Family Computer’s Dream Adventure Game, Super Mario Bros.!
With a mysterious power, [Mario] gains a great transformation!
Explore the earth,
and much more to see in this complete world.
It’s Super Mario Bros!
Also available is the ultimate kung-fu challenge.
You could certainly say Mario’s 30-year career has been a “dream adventure”. But what ever happened to Spartan X?
