Super Mario Bros. 3 Commercial

Super Mario Bros 3 was released by Nintendo in 1990. I personally remember the Christmas I got it. My cousin, who got me into the Atari 500 and Amiga, told me he got me the game but demanded that I danced after dinner or I would not get it. Let me just tell you I danced like Rerun on What’s Happening for that game and was glad to do it.

SMB3 went back to the traditional style of Mario Bros while adding a ton of cool new features to the game. There were some fans that did not like the change in direction Super Mario Bros. 2 took, but SMB3 revitalized the fan base and added a ton of new fans as well.

The commercial itself is more general to the overall domination of Super Mario Bros rather than an ad for SMB3. Nintendo knew they had a hit on their hands which ended up on the top of many best games lists and spawned a television show and tons of merchandise including a cereal.
