[Every Thursday is Retro Day at Gamer Limit, so kick back and enjoy the classics. Feel free to check out our full schedule right here!]

Bringing awkwardness to another level is this week’s Retro Ad. Who would have thought that combining the annoying kid from E.T. with your friendly local pervert could produce such an uncomfortable 30 seconds?

Hit the jump to see how Intellivision marketers dropped the ball on this one.

That shifty smirk at 0:18 will haunt my dreams forever.

Don’t take that copy of Lock ‘n’ Chase, Elliot! It’s not a game!

  1. Awesome post. I had an Intellevision, but I don’t remember that ad!

    Besides, the kid got off light — you should have seen what I had to do to get my copy of Deadly Discs of Tron!

    *runs off crying*

  2. LOL this is soooo creepy. Was it the directors idea of the Intellivision guy to have the kid have a crush on Mr. Intellivision. I wonder if this kid later filed molestation charges on Mr. Intellivision. “hhhheee sssaiiiddd hheee hhaddd caaannddyy iinn hiss dresssinngg roooooooooooooooommm.”

  3. That kid is gay for some Mr.Intellivision penis lol

  4. My name…?

    *Fade to black.


  5. Wow. That really was super creepy!

    Hi Binu.I don’t have enough hands-on eiprexence of using the various Microsoft distributed technologies. Although from what I’ve heard from people who have, that might not be a bad thing!All of Ian Robinson’s and Jim Webber’s sound advice (see links in the earlier comment) apply equally well to Microsoft, Java and OSS technologies. They focus on using the underlying infrastructure of the Internet (HTTP verbs, return codes, Post-Redirect-Get pattern, etc.) which are thankfully largely independent of the technology used to implement the actual services.
