Long Lost SEGA “Absolutely Rose Street” Infomercial is a Hilarious 28-Minute Ode to Gaming in the 1990s
Mention the 1990s to anyone that grew up during that period and they’ll bring back a flood of memories – bad hair, totally being “extreme” and “gnarly,” but most of all, to avid video gamers it was the time of the N64, the PS1, and consoles of the SEGA era. Now, you can experience a blast all the way from the past in a long lost SEGA commercial that’s both hilarious and slightly horrifying to watch now.
Originally released in 1994, the long lost SEGA infomercial titled “Absolutely Rose Street” was uncovered in a VHS tape sent by SEGA’s PR firm back then, and while the video has largely been unseen for the last two decades, a VHS copy was uncovered and ripped online for all to enjoy (?) across the Internet.
Used as a promotional infomercial for the SEGA 32X, you can check out the entirety of “Absolutely Rose Street” below for a look back at the best (and worst) of video games in the 1990s:
