Chef Boyardee and the Atari 2600 are Perfect Together

Modern me, would not have put Chef Boyardee pasta and the Atari 2600 together before I spotted this ad posted by Plaidman (his Flickr presence is awesome). But in 1984, I would not have thought for a second that Atari did not go perfectly with just about anything. We were in the midst of the video game crash, but in my household we were still riding high on the VCS wave. Anything could have went well with Atari back then, especially pasta from a can, which is the prefect meal to eat when you need to get back to a round of Asteroid on the living room tube.
