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.
