Q*bert And The Twilight Zone Come Together In This TV Ad!

We have seen all sorts of styles of advertising when it comes to the vintage television commercials for the home ports of the classic arcade games of the 80s. While the majority of them seemed to focus on how being able to play your favorite games in the comfort of your home would be like living a real life space adventure…there have been a handful like Pole Position and now this Q*bert ad that bordered on the threatening…and terrifying!

Until yesterday I’ve never had the privilege of seeing this particular commercial before which is a shame as the merging of both Q*bert and the Twilight Zone is just amazing. You’ll need to raise the volume a bit…and make sure to check out how that portrait on the wall changes as the Family transform themselves.
