Controversial Super Mario Strikers Ad Surfaces Onto the Web


It has come to light that a rejected ad for the game Super Mario Strikers, a soccer game originally released for the Gamecube, is now showing what Nintendo planned to sway customers attention with.

The ad was originally meant to be an ad for magazine prints for the 2005 game, and is titled “You’re Gonna Need A Pair” with two soccer balls positioned provocatively, giving it a double take on what it actually means. This would of been a rather awkward situation for Nintendo to deal with.

What’s the strangest ad you’ve seen from Nintendo? Let us know in the comment section below.
