Kotaku have been nice enough to upload for our viewing pleasure, what they like to call The Best Damn Video Game Informercial You’ll Ever Not Walk Away From, and I’ll have to agree. It’s awesome.
The hour infomercial was created by TNT Amusement some years ago, Kotaku blogger Brian Crecente explains the videos background…
Many years ago I had the pleasure of interviewing Todd Tuckey, owner of TNT Amusement, for a story I was working on about arcade machine ownership and restoration. The man is a font of information and a genuine arcade aficionado. He also makes a living restoring, storing and selling arcade and pinball machines.
Every time we talked over the years he would mention his infomercial. An hour long commercial for his place that was so packed with info, silly jokes and eyes on retro machines, that it had earned itself a cult following. Finally, one day I asked him how I could watch it and he said that it wasn’t online. So I told him to send us a copy so we could host it.
So if you’re looking to take a trip back to a time when arcades were still financially viable and real gaming couldn’t be done in front of your tv – jump over to the Kotaku article and check out the video (thats right, I can’t manage to embed the damn thing).
