Watch: A 1997 'Sugar Rush Speedway' Game Ad for 'Wreck-It Ralph'

Not too long ago, a charming and nostalgic, faux commercial emerged for Litwak's Arcade featuring Fix-It Felix Jr. with bad guy Wreck-It Ralph. Now another throwback commercial has emerged for Sugar Rush Speedway, the 1997 video game that's featured prominently in the film. The game is touted at being at the very same arcade, but it also feels like it could easily be ported to Nintendo 64, which makes sense considering the time this ad is supposed to exist (there's some Mario Kart 64 sounds in there for sure too). I'm betting a Hero's Duty ad is right around the corner as well leading up to Disney's release next month.
Here's the 1997 ad for Sugar Rush Speedway from Disney's Wreck-It Ralph via ComingSoon:
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 good?

I gotta admit, WIR's viral campaign has been very impressive and entertaining.
