I think I am in the minority but I believe that the Popeye arcade game by Nintendo is one of the best and that Park Brothers did a great job of porting it to the Atari 2600. I do not however recall ever seeing this animated TV commercial for the home version of the game.
The video is kind of blurry but this one is completely clear…and in French.

A big thanks as always to AtariAge.Com for the box art you see up top.
