Mega Man 10 commercial goes NosCon!

       


In a shocking move to avoid this being labeled as YouTube spam, here's an acceptable amount of commentary. 
 
First of all, that show with the robot was so awesome back in the day. I had that same pair of those short shorts because of that show! Second, whatever happened to lunchboxes? Back in kindergarten, I rocked a sweet red Transformers lunchbox with trusty old Optimus Prime on the front... 'twas a simpler time it was. Third, what the fuck is he playing that on? Oh I know, NOT a NES! The Mega Man 10 I know would be a NES exclusive. Seriously, Capcom... a joystick? I'd like to attempt playing Mega Man using an Atari 2600 controller just to see how many times I can pull a Brad. Fourth, that kid doesn't quite look 80s enough for some reason. I think it's the haircut. Fifth, the Capcom logo at the end would benefit from this popular intro tune. 
  

And despite those significant historical inaccuracies, that commercial was actually pretty awesome. It captures pretty well the spirit of the golden age of Mega Man. It's got NosCon written all over it.

That's pretty awesome, I like all the VHS effects.

Wow, that would almost be like the most badass thing I've seen all day if it weren't for the Justin Wong SSFIV vids. 
 
Capcom is awesome!

That kids hair took me out of the retro style, Now I want to hate that kid.

@Dalai: It's almost never considered YouTube spam if the video is about an actual game, and it's in the right forum. YouTube spam is more like, "Oh hey guys look at this funny cat video I found lol."

I love how fucking retro this is. Well done, whoever had the idea to make it.
I didn't notice the optimus prime lunchbox first time round.

Wrong; people on Giantbomb think everything is "Youtube spam".

They were singing to the tune of the intro level on Megaman X. Weird.

My family was to poor for lunchboxes, I had to use a paper bag. I don't want to go back and you can't make me.

We don't hate funny cats. Giant bomb just isn't the place for them. Their place is under the wheels of a bus. Or six feet under the ground. Or in a bath full of concentrated Hydrochloric Acid. Or in a microwave. Or on a bonfire. Or underneath a lighting bolt. Or with it's neck between the teeth of an angry grizzly bear. Or in the sights of my sniper rifle.
 
So yeah, we don't hate funny cats, we just want them all to die horrible & painful deaths. Is that too much to ask for?
