Mega Man 10 Retro Ad

For the release of Mega Man 10, Capcom put together an awesome new commercial that looks straight out of the ’80s. Check it out below:

The game is available for download on the Wii, PS3, and XBox 360 and features classic 8-bit graphics.  I think that the retro commercial style was a definitely an original idea and the perfect way to reflect the game’s style.

Thanks to Unreality for the original post.

Amazon Kindle Ads are Quite Creative

Sorry it’s been so long since my last post; things are getting busy.  That said, my posts may be a tad shorter for a little while (like this one!).  If you want to see a longer article in the near future, write one!  See my last post about guest blogging on the site.

Here are two new ads for the Amazon Kindle.  I’m not sure when they were first aired, but from what I recall, they were released on TV shortly after the iPad was announced.  The art style of the ads is cool, and if I was in the market for an eReader, odds are I’d be getting a Kindle.

Nextel – Dance Party Commercial

This was one of may favorite commercials back it was still on TV (and Nextel was still its own company).  Check it out below if you haven’t seen it.  If you have seen it, odds are you’ll want to watch it again.

Did you like the ad? Do you remember seeing it on TV? Post about it in the comments section below!

Nikon S60 Face Detection Ads

The ads for the Nikon S60 were some of my favorite when they came out a few years back.  The camera itself turned out to be only so-so, but the ads portrayed one of the camera’s better features (face detection technology for up to 12 faces at one time) in a powerful and hilarious way.
