again, visually cool... and nice idea... but why only nintendo 80s icons. product has nothing to do with video games, right?

Can't agree more with you. Love the idea and art direction Rules, but why only videogame icons???

In my opinion: because back in the 80's the only methods of "private entertainment" are the portable game consoles named "game & watch" and your magnetic-tape-based "walkman".

Now, the sound of these "game & watch" things was really poor & monotonic. It only consisted of sound fx for what the character itself is doing from jumping to grabbing an object.. etc, so for one to be truly immersed & isolated he has to put his headphones with his personal music on.

By time, music attaches to the visuals of the game, and one brings another, meaning if you see the character you used to play for endless hours, you'll definitely remember the music. These were iconic game characters back then, Donki Kong, Supers Mario.. etc.

That's what I think. Have a nice day. :)

greetings

i think its the association that's more important here, and i agree that it does take the advertising to a more game oriented level, yet you cant disagree with the childhood/adolescence connection it creates. Esp. when the message is pretty clear in the copy

peace
