I’m not sure who came up with the approach on this commercial for the upcoming Intellivision Flashback console but they sold me on it in the first twenty seconds of the ad. Now granted this console is kind of marketed to those of us who visit the Retroist so it wasn’t that hard of a sell…still…it brought a big smile to my face.
