Quite a few weeks ago, Larry Bundy, was very kind to send along some vintage audio and video focusing on the 1982 push by Atari of its Dig Dug theatrical commercial. We’ve shared that ad on the site once or twice in the past but just in case you need to refresh your memory.

Now Larry also sent along this audio over from SoundCloud and it looks like originally Atari was going to use this recording by none other than Chubby Checker! If you listen to the music used in the theatrical ad you can hear it’s just a little different.
Now if that bit of lost Dig Dug audio wasn’t awesome enough, Larry went a step further by sharing this segment from Entertainment Tonight with a behind the scenes look at the making of the theatrical ad.
