Nostalgia Theater: Super Nintendo -- Paul Rudd Plays With Power. Super Power!

This past Tuesday marked twenty-five years to the day that Nintendo's Super Nintendo Entertainment System made its debut in North America. And so, I thought there was no better time to wheel out this vintage TV spot hyping the 16-bit gaming platform's debut starring future superhero Paul Rudd. He was twenty-two at the time, and he appears not to have aged at all in the interim, so chalk one up to good genes, I guess. Anyway, I never did own a Super NES (or any NES, actually, other than a first generation Gameboy), so my memories of the system revolve more around seeing this ad in constant rotation than any actual games that I played on it. Enjoy:

Two Years Ago in Nostalgia Theater: Boomtown -- The Best Cop Show You've Never Seen

Three Years Ago in Nostalgia Theater: Terminator 2 Action Figures -- He's Back!
