Remember these Nintendo Commercials from the 1980's and 90's?

I have a particularly fond memory for the one that starts at 1:06 – the Mario commercial featured in the still picture above. I remember wondering, as a child, how it was that I never heard of this North American “dress up and make Mario visible from outerspace” stunt when I was a kid. It never occured to me that there might be some editing trickery, and, as a Pennsylvanian, had never been so jealous of all of those states who make up the center of our nation – like those lucky people in colorado who got to be part of Mario’s face. I was so jealous. It’s great to look back at these and see just how vividly I remember these commercials.
