1978 Atari Commercial With Pete Rose, Pelé, And Don Knotts


The Retroist posted a similar television commercial a couple of years back but I just stumbled on this version which includes the addition of Soccer great Pelé making a startling announcement concerning his career and the Atari 2600.

  1. Atari Adventure Square says:

    Pelé’s Soccer was one of my first Atari games and a favorite activity in that initial visiting family group huddle around the new tech, during the holidays.

    But no wonder Pelé needs more practice, he’s playing Air-Sea Battle!

    Stick a soccer ball in there and it’s all good.

    That sounds like the start of a joke. Pete Rose, Pele and Don Knotts walk into a bar…

    That is a great commercial. I hadn’t seen that one.

  3. Ah yes, Knotts! Looks like a scene from Dukes of Hazard.
