Meier & Frank Atari 2600 Christmas TV Commercial

We didn’t have a Meier and Frank department store in my neck of the woods growing up but I would have certainly directed my family to shop there if I would have seen this commercial back in the day.

    Thanks!!!! I remember that commercial and how the games kept stacking up and thinking how I would kill to have just one of them. Not sure if M&F was anywhere outside the northwest or not.

    Thanks Derek! I remember this and as recently as monday I was searching for something about it; problem being that I thought it was at Lippmans because I remembered seeing santa and the cinnamon bear there. I will check the video out.
