Joel McHale 3DS Commercial

#1 Edited by hershelgeorgelives (78 posts) -

So, there is a commercial of Joel Mchale advertising the 3DS on youtube that is probably worth watching. I was very surprised by the fact that it is actually funny unlike every other commercial ever. It is one of the most non-nintendo nintendo commercials I've seen, maybe they let Joel Mchale write it. This being the internet, however, I will probably get 5 people telling me it is not funny and then this thread will be locked, oh well.

Odd, the video won't play for me, and upon searching for it on youtube nothing related appears.

The line "I was very surprised by the fact that it is actually funny unlike every other commercial ever." made me laugh more than anything in that video.

The video was pretty good.

A pretty good commercial, albeit too self aware of how self aware it is.

Amazingly enough, this was pretty funny. Best line was the racist joke. Didn't expect it.

It's funny but where can you show a 3+ minute commercial? The movie theater? I don't think it would hold up as a 30 second TV ad.

All I had ever known about Joel McHale was Ubisoft press conferences and then I was surprised to find that he can be funny on Community.

That was pretty good.

I feel like THIS would be a relevant response to the commercial.

That commercial was streets ahead.

I'm actually kind of surprised that people think this is as funny as they do. Maybe I'm just not a McHale fan.

I thought it was pretty good.

I was expecting to be the cynical asshole OP was talking about saying it's not funny, but I actually thought it was pretty funny.

So good job, Joel McHale.
