K-Mart Atari 2600 TV Commercial Proves Dad Doesn’t Like Being Upstaged On “Asteroids”!

KMart - Asteroids
This 1980s Atari 2600 ad for K-Mart stores and the gaming bargains that could be found there has a lot of things going for it. It shows a family in their living room enjoying the Atari 2600 and the Asteroids port in particular. It does show that the young Son playing Asteroids is getting encouragement from the rest of his family…his Mother and Sister maybe…but not his Dad. That guy is a sore loser.
