Nintendo doesn't get much credit for its advertising and deservedly so. At times, it's PR efforts have been known to leave you more scratching your head than reaching for your wallet. At other times, it seems that Nintendo is barely aware of the latest cultural trends.

More of this please Nintendo.
For reference, here is an older commercial someone at Nintendo green lit for its Super NES game, Super Mario World 2 Yoshi Island:
