Tapeworm by Spectravision

Nothing says retro fun louder then a giant lower intestinal parasite. I always found this ad for Spectravision’s Tapeworm kind of creepy. But for some odd reason, on second look I find it oddly compelling. I don’t know what it is, but something about that goofy worm’s smile just lights up my day.

The big question is: Why, with the glasses, they didn’t call this Bookworm? It just makes more sense

    I totally remember this game… It was indeed fun to have a tapeworm, although I never had one of my own. I had to play with my friend’s tapeworm.
