I saw this earlier. It's amusing to see all those ads again and the commentary is pretty interesting.
I feel like this is one of the better gaming channels, despite not often dealing with systems that I'm familiar with. I never had an Amiga or a C64, or a ZX Spectrum and never heard about them where I grew up.
Atari 2600->DOS->NES for me.
Anyways, I feel like this channel needs more subscribers.
Yeah outside of the Electronica in Wip3out and that "coke nose" ad, which I think got banned in the US anyway for that reason, I didn't reealize that Sony immersed themselves so much in "underground" Euro rave culture. I do remember seeing the logo at American US festivals my 14-year-old self couldn't afford or probably attend anyway, but it was Sony, and it seemed like Sony here were just surrounding themselves with whatever zeitgeisty teenage alternative bullshit band was #2 on Total Request Live that week, just like you'd expect from a company whose eggs were firmly placed in the success of their pre-mp3 record label and not some new kids toy or whatever.
