This Atari ‘Centipede’ Commercial is the Nightmare Fuel

What if the Atari game ‘Centipede’ decided to make a commercial that mashed up b-roll sci-fi footage and spliced it together with an idea that feels ripped from a ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ film? Well wonder no more because we found this vintage Atari ‘Centipede’ commercial that does just that!

Everything seems to be going fine at first until a god damn centipede reaches through your TV and pulls you into the game, sleeps with your wife and attacks a homeless person in an alleyway.

“HELP! SOMEBODY CALL AN EXTERMINATOR!” then check out the TV spot below.
