Disney Unearths 1982 Litwak’s Arcade Commercial For Fix-It Felix

on October 8, 2012 2:42 PM

Disney Animation recently released an 80’s style commercial for Fix-It Felix Jr., the arcade game featured in their upcoming movie, Wreck-It Ralph. The old-timey advertisement is short and simple, but it will tug on the nostalgic heartstrings of the twenty to thirty-somethings that can remember a time when arcades were a thing.

…I just made myself sad.

Ralph is set to wreck theaters early next month.┬áIf you’ve been living under a rock for the last eight months, the Disney animation will feature cameos by Bowser, Dr. Eggman/Robotnik, Sonic, Ryu, M. Bison, Zangief, and many more video game characters. Throw all your money at Disney, they waited until the right time to pull the trigger on this one.
