Wreck-It Ralph

We've already seen some great trailers (both domestic and international) and fun TV spots for Disney's animated Wreck-It Ralph, featuring the voice of John C. Reilly as an arcade game bad guy who just wants something more in his life. Even the video game in question is playable online and on various mobile devices. Now a cool retro commercial for Litwik's Arcade advertises the Fix-It Felix Jr. game back in 1982, and it hits the nostalgic nail on the head. I still remember games advertised like this on TV when I was a wee lad, and this takes me back to those days when being an adult was a dream instead of a nightmare.

Here's the cool retro commercial for Fix-It Felix Jr. from Disney's Wreck-It Ralph, via BuzzFeed:

Wreck-It Ralph

The bad-guy character Ralph, in the classic game Fix-It Felix Jr., who longs to be a hero brings trouble to his entire arcade after sneaking into a new first-person shooter game and unleashing a deadly enemy.

Rich Moore (who has helmed episodes of "Futurama" and "The Simpsons") is directing Wreck-It Ralph, the story of an 8-bit video game character struggling with his own villainous identity with the world of arcade games. John C. Reilly voices the titular character who tries to be a hero, but ends up unleashing a deadly enemy who just might destroy every game in the arcade. Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch and Sarah Silverman all lend their voices to the film which is slated to hit theaters on November 2nd in 3D. Looking great?
