Thanks to the fantastic Retroist Podcast – Episode 105 – Mr. Do! yesterday it got me thinking about this commercial from back in the day for the ColecoVision home port of the classic arcade title!
Welcome to the Retroist Coleco Adam Podcast. On today’s show I talk all about the much maligned, but somehow well-loved computer system, The Coleco Adam. I start off talking about how the undependability of the Adam ruined a birthday party I went to as a kid. Then I talk about the company who made the system, the merits of the computer, some of the problems it had, its receptions and more. Music throughout the show was provided by Peachy.

Thanks for listening to the show and I hope you have a great weekend.
A big thanks to Joystiq.com for this amusing video showing us a world where famed Intellivision spokesman, George Plimpton, alerts Colecovision players of his newest game title. At first I thought this joke might have been the work of some alternate reality traveler who managed to bring his VHS recordings with him…wait a minute…is this from our very own Claymation Werewolf by chance?
These wonderful adverts were converted from a 2″ tape reel w/ countdowns and slates by rolochoshu. This batch has 4 commercials featuring the Coleco Adam, Colecovision, and Cabbage Patch Kids are featured.
What can we be excited about in 1983 on the Colecovision? Well according to Videogaming and Computergaming Illustrated…
