1982 Commercial for the video game “Joust” for Atari 2600 & 5200
I don’t even know whats happening in this commercial but i love it regardless. Commercials back then were so much better i find, as most of them were just pure nonsense. Now a days commercials are so simplistic and/or generic it kills me; metaphorically.
With Pokemon Sun and Moon releasing worldwide last week it is time to dig out all those trippy scenes from the Pokemon short “Pikachu’s Vacation”.
You can watch the whole movie here on the official Pokemon channel. Enjoy!
Psychedelic crustaceans and moths plague the snowboarding protagonist in this game with a 1980s retro vibe.
Japanese manga, anime and video game cultures often use extensive and very psychedelic animations when they depict transformations (remember Sailor Moon?) and the summoning of supernatural forces. The recently released Pokemon fighting game Pokkon Tournament is no exeption.
The heritage of the Stargate sequence is (once more) strong in this decidedly psychedelic shooter.
