Hilarious Atari 2600 Pole Position Ad

YouTube continues to deliver hit after hit.  This Pole Position ad is a wonderful slice of painful early 80s entertainment.  Yikes.

I NEED TO HAVE THE MUSIC FROM THIS COMMERCIAL OR I WILL DIE!!!!!!! Doesn´t somebody know where to get it? Or at least the band´s name?

BTW this ad makes me want to run to a store and buy the game even though it´s not available for like 15 years and I have it on emulator...

Why can't adverts be like that nowadays? That was cool. I used to have that game on N64.

I love how a game with a title that sounds like a strip club stars a family in the commercial.

I love it. Nice 80's. Pole Position still has an awesome feel of speed.
