Nintendo Cereal System


Last one of these for a little while, I promise. I absolutely love these ridiculous 80s print ads - they'd typically run in gaming magazines or comic books, printed on really crappy paper, and they'd always make whatever they were advertising seem like the ultimate gaming challenge. Including, in this case, breakfast.

The copy reads:
Introducing a winning combination for breakfast.

Link: We rescued breakfast!
Mario: This tastes super!

Introducing the Nintendo Cereal System (TM).

Nintendo is for breakfast now. Nintendo is two cereals in one. Wow! Super Mario Bros (TM) and Zelda (TM), too.

Mix 'em, match 'em, crunch 'em, you just can't lose! Fruit flavoured Marios, Mushrooms and Goombas. Berry flavoured Links, Hearts and Shields. Nintendo is breakfast news!

Nintendo Cereal System.

If you can't beat 'em, eat 'em.
Pure gold.

Completely off topic comment here but I'll say it anyway.

I found this place via a comment from you about escort missions in gaming (which was part of the Blogs of the Round Table), this comment of yours linked here and so I read your entry on the escort missions of gaming too.

Anyway after enjoying that I decided to look around and much to my surprise, not only did I seem to find a blog that focuses on subjects I'm rather interested in (I'll read more later today when I'm not so tired - 4:30am and all...), but also that you happen to be from Canberra.

Yep, I'm Canberran too so I thought it was kinda cool to stumble across someone else who blogs from this place. I'm still new to the blogging scene but yeah, anyway.

Excuse the off topic and perhaps random comment, just thought I'd pop in and say hi to a fellow Canberran.

That's totally awesome. You should find me on Facebook (I think there's a link on the right of the blog).

Also, comments are always welcome, whether or not they're on topic and whether or not they have anything to say. It lets me know that people have read the post in a much more immediate and personal way than my StatCounter.

My friends always asked me how to buy Archlord gold, and I do not know he spend how much money to buy the archlord online Gold, when I see him in order to play the game and search which the place can buy the
cheap Archlord gold. I am happy with him.
