Before he was Ant-Man, Paul Rudd wanted to sell you a Super Nintendo

Paul Rudd is the star of the upcoming Ant-Man, and judging by Marvel's batting average at making odd characters work in big budget films it's likely to be a hit. Paul Rudd has gaming in his past, however, as you can see from the commercial embedded above.

It's not even bad as '90s-era gaming commercials go. Nintendo seemed to be aiming for an older audience, and this does a great job of selling the games and the system to people who just want to chill out and listen to some Better than Ezra.

Some of Nintendo's commercials from this time period were much, much worse.
