YouTube – Intellivision® TV Commercial: Introducing Intellivision

11 09 2008

Great early commercial for the Intellivision game console and computer addon. It was actually a few years later that they actually get a computer addon on the market. In fact Mattel took so long to release the promised that they were hit with a class action suit by disgruntled customers that had purchased Intellivisions with the plan to use them with the "soon to be released" computer addon. What they did finally release looked nothing like the prototype seen in the commercial. It was an underpowered joke, but it was enough tofufill their legal obligation to their customers.
