Memories of dusty video game cartridges and controllers thrown against the wall in frustration come flooding back thanks to this lovingly rendered commercial for Braun.
In the rich vein of classic 2D platformers like Super Mario and Sonic the Hedgehog, the aim of the game is to acquire the all-important Braun S3 electric razor. Like any self-respecting platformer, the path to glory is littered with power-ups and tricky obstacles...not least the dreaded Science Teacher boss.
For Braun, it's a fun and memorable way of presenting the brand as a reward for those ready to take on the trickier stages of life. The victory sound effect has been earned here.
