“Bored Game” Is The One Board Game You Will Wish Is Under Your Christmas Tree This Year!

Bored Game
A big thanks to RetroArtBlog for bringing this awesome fake commercial to my attention yesterday! While this mock ad certainly delivers an 80’s style to selling it’s product…the real treat is just how much retro related goodness is packed into the ad.

Gizmo from Gremlins, the Muppets Magazine, Konami’s NES Top Gun poster, Boglins, Robo Force, the TMNT movie poster, and that is the very tip of the iceberg. I’ve watched it 5 times now and keep picking up a new 80s toy or product every single time.

How many items can you spy?

    This would have been even better if they had kept the flickering VHS effect going all the way through….
