Game advertising from around the world.

Everyone and their distant uncle Arnold, yeah, the one with the thing in his hip and the lazy eye? yeah that guy... probably knows about this site except me. It's a site that lets you view commercials for games from around the world.

Understandably, a lot of the ads are from Japan. Which makes the experience not so much about ad watching as about cultural nourishment for the soul. Hold my hand, let's watch together!

The image is from a Final Fantasy 4 ad in Japan but could also be for a new perfume. Hmm a game perfume... what would it smell like? Oh god, probably sweat and hot pockets, nevermind.

[sings the jingle... "HOT Pockets!"]
