Classic 1980s Atari TV Commercial

These types of commercials bring back some memories for fans of Atari products and games.

These old commercials are great for so many reasons, and I really liked this one especially. First, it gives a full overview of Atari products, so you get to see coin-op games as well as home games and Atari computers. I also love the 80s cheap-sounding digital music (high-end tech for the day), how incredibly excited those adults and kids are to be playing Atari games (NOTE: Adults are playing the coin-ops, but kids are playing the home games), and of course, tacked on at the end, you can also use Atari products to do bar charts and balance your check book. Ah the future sure looked bright for Atari.
