Yoshi’s Island

Friday Night Videos: This is Fucking Disgusting.

Ahh, the early to mid-nineties. It seems like in those days everyone was trying to out-extreme each other. You couldn’t catch a commercial break back then that didn’t feature some kids pulling off far out and radical skateboarding/bmx tricks or shit like this week’s video. To say that Nintendo might have pushed it a little far with their TV ad for *Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island is a serious understatement. Not only does it not really have anything to do with the game itself, it’s just nasty. I’m pretty sure I read somewhere that it was pulled not long after airing because parents were complaining or something.
