Dungeons and Dragons Ads

I got 2 Dungeons and Dragons Ads to share today. The first was a commercial, that I don’t remember seeing on TV, but I wish I had. The cross cutting between animation and gameplay and the deep gravely voiced narration makes it a genius work of suspense. Plus it seemingly has Jami Gertz and Alan Ruck in a rare appearance together. The only way you would ever see these two together again would maybe be on a CBS sitcom. Example: As the eccentric neighbors on King of Queens.

I think that Jami is supposed to be the Magic-User and Alan is maybe the gnomish looking Dwarf.


The 2nd as is a delightful print one (featured above) that has a short little comic about a group of adventurers and ends with the promise of more adventure. Although I don’t think Dimension Door has that much range, it’s still a cool ad. So print it, cut it out and send away for your product catalog today!
