So, you know that great Mario 25th anniversary ad, with the guy blowing on a Super Mario Bros. cartridge and then dropping it into his Famicom? Nintendo realized that commercial was too much fun, and set to work flattening it out with a second video on the 25th Anniversary website, which is nothing but a bunch of text about how you shouldn’t actually engage in “cassette fufu” (as Famicom no Neta calls it, and as I’ll call it forever and ever).
Did Nintendo realize that people were suddenly going to damage their old-ass Famicoms because the commercial showed an image of something everyone does anyway? On one hand, it kind of makes the commercial seem lamer — but on the other hand, Nintendo cares about our Famicoms! That’s neat.
