The Worst Nintenexecute TV Commercials Ever

The adhering to videos loss into 2 main categories: the first collection, which are so toe-curlingly dated that they"re hard to enjoy even via our irony dials turned approximately eleven; and the second batch, which are ssuggest disappointing assets of their time. Nintencarry out signed off on them earlier then, but you"d hope that stern words would certainly be had actually through anyone proposing them in ad meetings these days.

You are watching: We are nintendo you cannot beat us

So, let"s dredge the lake for the worst Nintencarry out TV commercials...

On this page:

The Worst Nintenperform TV Commercials Ever

Help Donkey Kong Jr. Save Papa


Mario as a banana-brandishing hoodlum? Donessential Kong Jr. calling DK "papa" and also looking prefer Helena Bonham Carter from Tim Burton"s Planet of the Apes reboot? Donkey Kong himself playing Donessential Kong Jr. in his cage?

It"s all below, and also it"s all poor.


This Australian ad features a bunch of horrific early CG, botched versions of characters from NES games telling you that it"s impossible to beat them while doing their very best impression of the Borg from Star Trek.

It turned out that resistance was futile for game-addicted Nintendo fans, but we have the right to only imagine the psychological damage inflicted on the youth of Australia by this ad.

"It"s The Legend of Zelda and it"s really rad..."


Some human being will certainly say this was the best Nintencarry out ad ever. That"s okay — no problem! They"re simply wrong.

We"re really not certain what they were going for here. Let"s, for a moment, assume that this hip, poppin", fresh rap actually had actually a residue of cool in the at an early stage "90s (Eminem was a long means off, and also we"re not certain Vanilla Ice was ever before hip), any type of cool evapoprices immediately many thanks not just to the youngsters themselves, but additionally the announcement that "Your paleas assist you hook it up!" Gee, mother have the right to obtain involved too?! AWESOME!!!


Tright here appeared to be an obsession via adding rap and, on occasion, marionettes to Zelda commercials. The puppets had actually charm, yet this... didn"t.

"Clean is much better than dirty"


You watch this waiting for the punchline... yet tright here isn"t one. It"s just what it is; a twee little ditty about cleaning up. It"s obtained some gameplay footage, but past that we don"t recognize what they were thinking.

Recently, video producer vini64 has actually made some exceptionally helpful compilations of worldwide commercials for specific Mario games, and also tright here are some actual beauties to gain from across the plumber"s career.

Wii U "Family Time"


To be fair, the ad human being didn"t have actually as much to work-related via around the Wii U era, however the approach they embraced of children "pitching" the console to their paleas was specifically insipid. If too-cool-for-institution Steve Harris from Stranger Things can not save your consingle (skip to 2:36 in the video above), you recognize you"re in trouble.


We"d favor to create somepoint even more around this terrible selection of Wii U commercials, but they"ve led to our eyebrows to clamp to our chin.

"When is "also much" as well much?"


This rancid Yoshi"s Island ad is a homage/rip-off of the Mr Creosote scene from Monty Python"s The Meaning of Life. A "little bit bonus level" serves as the "waffer-thin" mint in this variation resulting in the gluttonous gamer to explode.

This was component of the "Play It Loud" era, and this brand also of gross-out humour was in vogue at the time, however they seldom jived with the wholesome games being advocated. Still, maybe it"s better to be negative than bland also.

Rodent Loves Video Game Boy Micro


If nothing else, this one is memorable, but the number of viewers who"ll want to check out a rodent humping a Game Boy Micro is low. No zero, yet low.


We"ve checked out the good, we"ve laughed at the negative, and currently it"s time to endure the questionable.

The adhering to commercials simply wouldn"t be made these days on the grounds that they"re riddled through stereokinds. Two years into the twenty-first century, they"re now embarrassing artefacts. Perhaps the world has actually acquired a little much better over the past few decades?

"Will thou get the girl, or play favor one?"


Playing on the schoolboy perspectives of the time, this one elevated some eyebrows at the moment, and also the line didn"t function in some trailers and print ads internationally. Still, for a agency that"s made strides over the years to make gaming as inclusive as feasible, this was an odd misaction.

The ads for the 3DS remake were much even more wholesome.

Player"s Choice Blackmail


This ad for the Player"s Choice line of first-party N64 games features a young son possibly blackmailing his father (and also grandfather) to store their cross-dressing antics under wraps in exadjust for cash to spfinish on sweet N64 titles. It probably felt like childish and harmless fun at the time, but it"s not something any type of respectable agency would certainly sign off on today.

Witchmedical professional Mario


Anvarious other one diving headinitially into a swamp of stereokinds. Even if you"re okay with the shrunken heads in this Dr. Mario ad, the song will crawl right into your ear and also rotate your brain to mush. We recommfinish NOT watching it. Don"t click that play switch above.

and finally... WTF??


This long commercial for Grill-Off With Ultra Hand!, a WiiWare Club Nintenexecute exclusive, was really just an ad for Club Nintenperform. However before, it"s one of the weirdest things Nintenperform has actually ever before put its name to. Words can"t carry out correct justice to its 2 minutes fifty-two secs of pure WTF — simply fetch yourself a beverage, sit ago and also "enjoy" it.

Have we missed any type of of your personal favourites? Let us know below and also we might even include them to the selection above.

Gavin loves a little bit of couch co-op, specifically as soon as he gets to delegate functions, bark instructions and give much-appreciated performance feedearlier at the finish. He lives in Spain (the plain-y little wbelow the rain greatly falls) and his love for Banjo-Kazooie borders on the unhealthy.

I was going to be mad if the smash commercial didn"t make it, it"s what made me desire the game so negative dammit!

Glad to watch that Yoshi"s Island also commercial. It was truly the worst of a whole era of tastemuch less marketing.

Though considering that you lugged up the Dr. Mario commercial, why not the Kirby"s Dream Land commercial (that at least ran in the US). Yep, the VERY FIRST image we gained of Kirby was him eating a "muscle-bound superhero" and then spitting out his bleeding disembodied head. That was a year before they famously forbid Mortal Kombat on the SNES from doing the same thing.

Where"s the JP Mario vs. Doncrucial Kong commercial

The one wbelow Mario"s face pops out of a Japanese woman"s cleavage. Standard.


Thu 1st Oct 2020

I"m trying actual hard to not laugh at the Majora"s Mask ad where the people is finishing and also the cam zooms as much as a male on his phone in the park and also all he"s gotta say is "I"m using all my minutes!"

Best SNES commercial: "A little even more ____" for Super Mario World: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWyMk-2aH9E

"Now you"re playing with power... SUPER power."


Thu first Oct 2020

Half-naked civilization in the Sunshine commercial.That absolutely fits the description I"ve heard of "UK commercials that more than likely wouldn"t have actually flvery own in the US." Though I haven"t watched TV in some years, so I do not even understand what broadcast requirements are now.


Thu first Oct 2020

My favorite one ever is Robin Williams mixing his daughter and Zelda up. It’s 10x sadder now that he’s passed.


Thu first Oct 2020

Not a Nintenexecute commercial, so it wouldn"t fit.But certainly this commercial where a nerdy kid buys a Genesis through Streets of Rage 2 bundled, then the following days tries out of some of the moves on the schoolyard bullies, is something the game sector would these days try very difficult to distance themselves from.


Thu 1st Oct 2020

Smash 64 (in the US not certain if it was different everywhere else) is still the ideal commercial ever before made...duration.

Although the Japanese Zelda commercials are great bereason they were geared towards all eras and had actually girls in leading roles (a difference from the marketing in the US that commonly pretended that just teenage boys played video games). Honestly, I don"t think I would have end up being a gamer had actually it not been for my mommy bereason I remember feeling like the commercials were all just about boys. The US Majora"s Mask commercial was weird/exciting cuz it made you think the zombie apocalypse was coming or somepoint...that being sassist the JPN ones were more to the point and also scary.


Thu first Oct 2020

This Mario Sunshine advert is the most memorable one for me...

"Clean is much better than dirty and dirty"s meaner than clean!"

https://youtu.be/0PjVzzK2PrM

Iconic!


Thu first Oct 2020

Personal favorite is this nonsensical commercial for Fire Emblem 7 that"s just like... tangentially concerned the game.

https://youtu.be/LM-s5C0dnZs


Thu first Oct 2020

The Ocarina of Time "Wilst thou play like a girl" was so cringe worthy. I"ve gained a postcard of that ad buried in my loft somewbelow.

For such a large landnote game and also such a crucial release to have it tied to such a "absent the mark" advert was a genuine shame. Compare to Sony"s (amazing) adverts of the 90"s in the UK and you can start to understand simply why Nintenperform and Sega obtained totally annihilated from the sector.


Thu first Oct 2020

I"ve never seen the "will certainly you conserve the girl? Or will you play choose one?" version of the OOT ad. I might have sworn it was constantly "Whilst though succeed? Or whilst though suck?" or somepoint alengthy those lines


Thu 1st Oct 2020

Ya know what? At the moment, I was pretty mad at those Wii U commercials bereason I felt like I essential to protect my Nintendo alternative against the other consoles, but dang it, I prefer "em currently. They"re funny. They were not funny at the time, though.


Thu first Oct 2020

The power of some heralding, I very plainly remember seeing that Mario 3 commercial as a boy. I"m certain I witnessed some of the others too, however none really stuck with me as a lot as that one.


Thu 1st Oct 2020

As a kid of the 80s my favorites are from that era. I didn"t check out the Zelda commercial via the weirexecute dressed in all black.

Commercials are rarely timemuch less since they are of their time in many instances. If you don"t favor the 80s you will not prefer 80s commercials, etc. Especially if you weren"t alive then.


Thu 1st Oct 2020

Why perform so many type of Nintencarry out Life write-ups make me feel choose such an old man?

The commercials for Kirby and Mario 3 involved me at around the age wright here I began to construct the components of my brain that made me marketable to a capitalist culture and began reasoning to myself "Pacman and Frogger have actually unexpectedly become boring currently, and also I want to play whatever that is"


Thu 1st Oct 2020

Am I right in believing that the boy via glasses in the advert titled "It"s The Legend of Zelda and it"s really rad..." is Brian Provinciano, developer of "Retro City Rampage" and also "Shakedown: Hawaii"?


Thu first Oct 2020

The "conserve the girl" OoT one is actually an ok include without that last sentence. The music is fine and also syncs up well through the gameplay being displayed and also the message and the voice over aren"t negative either.


Thu 1st Oct 2020

That Australian NES commercial is nightmare fuel, exactly how could this have actually ever aired on TV??


Thu 1st Oct 2020

Nintendo"s constantly had actually some...peculiar commercials from what I"ve viewed, though I"d admit that the Smash 64 commercial is just one of my favorites. I wish they did something choose that aget.

Looking at the "Worst Commercials" list, though, I"d say that I appreciated them for rather a little despite not being great. Then aobtain, any Nintencarry out commercial is still much better than Bowser"s Inside Story"s (DS) commercial. Holy crud, that commercial was just poor


Thu first Oct 2020

I kbrand-new the Ocarina of Time ad would certainly be on right here. Also, you are all uncultured. The Zelda Rap is among the ideal points of all time.


Thu first Oct 2020

This is my favorite Nintenperform ad (after Happy Together of course) just for the narration. It gets the story wrong and spoils the last boss, so it"s actually sort of a negative commercial all points taken into consideration, yet I still love it.

Thu 1st Oct 2020

No Luigi"s Mansion ad? That one is by far one the weirdest ads I"ve ever before watched. Although to be hoswarm it"s not horrible, just seems out of location.


Thu 1st Oct 2020

You guys missed the Yoshi Story commercial. I believed it was kinda bad too:

For me there"s a top 3.

The Mario 3 commercial via the multitudes calling his name. I remember that game from my childhood.

The Smash commercial where they"re all beating each other up. That"s the commercial I remember from my teenage years.

The "Wii would certainly favor to play" commercial. That"s the commercial from my adulthood.


Fri second Oct 2020

That Link to the Past ad looks favor it was actually foreshadowing Cadence of Hyrule! Seriously though, why don’t we obtain more dancing in advertisements?


Fri 2nd Oct 2020

What the **** is this garbage PC bullcrap claiming the "Will thou acquire the girl, or play like one?" is just one of the worst Nintencarry out ads. That is easily one of the ideal Nintenexecute ads ever. Only someone trying real hard to virtue signal in 2020 would certainly even attempt to case otherwise.


Fri 2nd Oct 2020

I don’t intend NL to cover all the good/negative commercials from Nintenperform over the years, yet, this short article must be followed via a part 2.


Fri second Oct 2020

It"s not Nintendo, but I still dropped obligated to include what I feel is the ideal video game ad of all time

https://youtu.be/WnGIkHQX6WY


Fri 2nd Oct 2020

I uploaded this awful Super Gameboy ad the other day. Found it on an old VHS tape in my folks" garage.

https://youtu.be/0xQ_Q9l1ZPw

It"s bad, guy. 1995, I believe


Spustatu considering how a lot I still love my piece of garbage known as the wii u I still can not watch a commercial that damaging. People think that marketing into the 80s and 90s was tasteless it might not have provided details on the game however it had personality. The wii u commercials are some of the worst I"ve ever seen prefer they were catered in the direction of not kids but stupid youngsters lol.


impuresort oh its not that its offensive no one cares about that it simply comes off as cheesy and tacky. I additionally remember the lyrics being whilst thou win or whilst thou suck or somepoint that was a funny for child me but gain the girl? Really? Cheeeeeesy


Ghostchip I dunno... A lot has changed in my life because then. I"ve had cancer. I went from 29 and single to 35 and also married. Maybe I"m old and lame currently... This is depushing.


Spustatu hey look on the bright side of things tright here is always a light in the tunnel and also I"m sure you will put every little thing behind you and live in the moment maybe do something sporadic!


Fri second Oct 2020

Sometimes I have actually legitimate PTSD flashbacks of the Yoshi"s Island also commercial. I am not joking.

Edit: I exaggerated a little. Do not problem, I don"t obtain real emotional trauma over a 90s gross-out commercial, I more simply... think about it at random times, pausage in place and squick.


Fri 2nd Oct 2020

I do not recognize. That Dr. Mario commercial was bonkers and also funny. Just mirrors exactly how civilization became means as well sensitive.

Always loved the mario! mario! mario! That"s once you knew Nintenperform was taking over the world! By that suggest eextremely son knew who mario was. I still remember the one from once snes arrived on the scene. That year 12 year old me was hyped!https://youtu.be/mt9E5UHr_Oc

The Rik Mayall ads are unironically some of the finest ads I"ve ever checked out for anything.
