“A Walrus moved into the village today.” “Hot.” This is just one of the hilarious lines spoken by one of the characters in one of these promotional videos created to advertise Animal Crossing for the GameCube back in the day and when I say back in the day, I really mean back in the day.
These Animal Crossing commercials are so old that they parody MTV’s The Real World, which is a trashy reality television show that was very popular in the early 2000s and while the show is still going on, it’s lost its luster.
I uncovered these videos while scrolling on Twitter earlier today thanks to a tweet from The Nintendo Power Couple and I cannot believe that I’ve never seen these on television as a kid.
These series of Animal Crossing commercials were uploaded to YouTube via SuperNerdOtaku and he says that they came from a Nintendo Power promo DVD so these might not have aired on TV at all, but if you’ve missed out, you can watch all four of them down below:
If you’ve yet to pre-order your copy of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you can do so at Target to snag yourself an adorable little journal. You can also get yourself these Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing-themed accessories if you are absolutely pumped for New Horizons release date on Mar. 20.
