What Sells Video Games? Mimes of Course.

Its a good thing the Vic 20 was so awesome that the game sold themselves. Because as spokesthings go, the Mime is somewhere below rapping shoe insert. I see absolutely no reason for UMI (which made some decent games) to use this mime, none of the games in the ad are clown related that I can see and this ad was out well after the Shields and Yarnell craze. Its a real head-scratcher.
