This 15-second ad features both a kids' room and an overly excited game. This dude wants us to watch him take out the Macho Man, Randy Savage by playing Acclaim's Wrestlemania, and he does so by yelling out the moves he uses. However, this ad only shows a few seonds of actually gameplay footage, plus it adds tevevision footage of Savage going at it with Hulk Hogan. The kid wins but gets a surprise visit from Savage at the end. Actually we just see his sequin robe as his voice calls out for a rematch.
KID: "Now watch me waste the Macho Man, with Acclaim's Wrestlemania for the Nintendo Entertainment System. A leg drop. An elbow smash! A BODY SLAM!!"
ANNOUNCER: "WWF Wrestlemania from Acclaim."
SAVAGE: "Oh yeah, I want a rematch."
|"Wow! I'm in an Acclaim ad!"||"I'm actually playing a wrestling match instead of the game."||"Ooh, Yeah! The Macho Man wants to waste you now!"|
Kids, the lesson here is if you play Wrestlemania, don't call out the Macho Man. Otherwise he'll pop into your room and snap you like a Slim Jim.
