Tips for Buying EarthBound

March 10th, 2009 | MOTHER 3, Videos

I’ll go into more detail about the MOTHER 3 TV ads another day, but here’s one of them that aired before the game was released in Japan.

Anyway, I came upon this today and it made me laugh, so it gets an update.

I’d love to see people parody other commercials, whether it’s MOTHER 1, 2, 3, 1+2, or even EarthBound’s horrible promotional video. See what you can come up with and post them here! If you want to see the original commercials for reference, check around.

This isn’t a real contest or anything, but I’ll give custom avatars or something to everyone who makes something 😀

Howls and stuff, huh? It sounds like a “Raaaar.” to me.

Ohohoho! I’ll have to take you up on that challenge, Mato.

I will make the best commercial I can.

I’ll byte. I’ll try to do one of these.

OMG put up a spoiler alert! I didn’t know there was a villain yet! =(

LeonardoGolden said on Mar. 10, 2009

Sooo if we make one, how do we let you know? :p

Mato said on Mar. 10, 2009

Post about it in the comments.

Guess I’ll give it a shot.

That was a hilarious parody. And a REALLY stupid original commercial, IMO. Does that kind of thing really sell games in Japan?

Stuffgamer1: Have you seen all 5 original commercials? I think they are great, especially for an established product such as Mother.

Kitt Ehn said on Mar. 10, 2009

This sounds like fun. I think i’ll go try making one.

i never knew there was a villain

Stuffgamer1: Watch the other ones. They’re better. It’s kind of like those DS commercials in the US that showed what’s her face from iCarly playing New Super Mario Bros. Showing that there’s people that you wouldn’t normally expect playing video games actually playing them. The MOTHER 3 commercials go farther with this though, having the girl talk about the parts that she thought were emotional.

I’ve kinda got an idea, but I have to drop it. 🙁

Well, needless to say, I think it’s totally awesome that you guys like this little parody. I really wasn’t expecting anyone to find it, but I guess it was wrong for me to underestimate the Earthbound/Mother community!

I’ve had another Mother 3 commercial idea bouncing around in my head, so I guess I’ll add to the fun. 🙂

Oh yeah, and Mitch’s was great too.

Jimi said on Mar. 11, 2009

Lies. This game does not have a villain. Prove me wrong, Silent Bob.

Alxprit said on Mar. 11, 2009

This video made me crack up. It even made my brother laugh, and he’s not a big fan of the series.

sonic111 said on Mar. 11, 2009

If I only have something to make one with.
But funny video anyway.

LeonardoGolden said on Mar. 12, 2009

OK, Here’s mine.
Mother 3 advertised in the style of Mother 1+2

I hope you like it!

Mitch, that commercial is awesome. For most of the time I though, yeah, it’s okay. And then I burst out laughing the moment you said the last line. Genius.
