In the 1980's Atari and MTV rocked the world. The two brands
were a cultural phenomenon. Atari and MTV, a.k.a. Music Television, were the kings of the living room. Atari ruled the
video game market, and MTV took the world by storm. MTV quickly spread across cable networks while music fans loudly proclaimed
"I want my MTV!"
So what happens when you combine the two most powerful forces
in 1980's pop culture? Strange and wonderful things! The following TV spots were made exclusively for MTV. They were
shown mostly at night, and were directly aimed at older gamers. These bizarre TV spots are filled with surreal visuals, catchy
tunes, suggestive themes, sexual innuendo, and centipede related violence.
Its the sort of thing you could only see on 1980's MTV!
