WATCH: Rik Mayall Nintendo adverts from the 90s

Features, Gaming

In the aftermath of the sad death of comedian Rik Mayall, a compilation video of the adverts he did for Nintendo in the early 90s has come to light.


The series of adverts feature Mayall pushing everything from 1993’s Zelda: Link’s Awakening to Star Fox on the SNES, to Street Fighter II. This could only get more 90s if he were to listen to Oasis whilst participating in a Tory sex scandal.
