Super Meat Boy Commercial Is Awesomely Retro

The entertainment value of video game commercials has steadily declined over the years. Nowadays, commercials try to be all moody and artistic, but in the '80s and '90s they were purely about blowing the minds of children already hopped up on Pop Rocks and Mountain Dew. Team Meat knows the appeal of these old relics, and has crafted a vintage commercial that, like the Super Meat Boy's story, will destroy your face.

In addition to some surreal visuals that would make Matthew Barney scratch his head, the video also shows off a variety of snippets from the game's 300+ levels, including a boss battle with a giant blood monster that killed me more times yesterday than I care to admit. If this commercial doesn't get you psyched for this awesome XBLA platformer, nothing will.
