Ad Blockers

gameboy color hair adWhile the “Got Milk?” campaign was the highlight of advertising in the 90s (still cant figure that one out,) it was a decade with plenty of flare for those flipping through magazines.

Here we have an ad for the Game Boy Color. Which really wasn’t actually in color. It featured maybe three of four colors during gameplay. But the system itself was colorful, and when your selling a product to kids that is all that really matters.

Now the thing I like about this ad is it shows a lot of the style of the 90s. Green haired grunge kid, bald…..girl and laughing black guy. Hmm. All right maybe it really doesn’t show much of anything. Whatever, I still loved my Game Boy, so what if Nintendo sucks at marketing.
