Super Meat Boy Gets Retro 90s Ad

I wonder how we'll spoof noughties ads.

I remember in the late 90s thinking to myself, “I wonder how people will spoof/retro this decade?” It was a ten year spread that seemed to be of such variation, and mostly made up of retroing various previous decades, that it seemed like it wouldn’t have a distinct flavour of its own. Of course, time passes and that all changes, as the splendid new pseudo-commercial for Super Meat Boy demonstrates. It’s an excellent production designed to capture the style of early 90s gaming advertising, as recorded on VHS. Despite the ad’s failure to mention the PC release, it’s coming out on the machine that made McMillen’s name a month later, on the 20th November.
