Hehe yeah...the quote is from Moby Dick, from the scene where Ahab baptizes his harpooners. It's probably the best scene in the whole book.

ANYWAYS - you may now all return to your regular revobantering.

I could see an underground campaign being here in America:  "Join the Reggielution"   With Reggielution shirts and the like.  Sort of like how Winter-een-mas is a holiday made up be a web comic and is observed.

In the Main stream I really don't know.  I could see them doing the bit where someone is say fishing.  Looks like it and everything but then you hear the Husband calling for dinner.  It then flashes to a wife holding the controller like a fishing poll on the couch and the husband wearing an apron, manly but not cheesy apron, with  dinner and they go over she goes over there.  At that point you it starts to super impose the logo and the slogan and you can still see the couple in the background, fuzzily, and you can hear trailing in the background:

Husband:  Honey,  I didn't think you liked fishing.
Wife:  Oh, well...  It seems I like to fish.  But I'll leave the real trips to the boys, mess and all.

It would be an interesting spot.  But I think it be to similar to the Playstation approach.

I still can't think of anything better than "When the Revolution Comes, You Will Not Be Spared".

I'd like to see something slapping the competition as overpriced too.

Maybe launch an uber bundle with 2 games (maybe SSBnline and Zelda: TP for the Cube) and 2 controllers and a memory card for $199

Microsoft Xbox 360... 2 games... 2 controllers... and a memory card $590 (I'm assuming a small price drop when the Ps3 launches)

Sony Playstation 3... 2 games... 2 controllers... and a memory stick... $650

Nintendo Revolution... 2 games... 2 controllers...  and a memory card... $199

You do the math.

Lol i did the math and .................

50 dollars for  LOZTP
50 dollars for SSBO
30 dollars for extra controller
20 dollars for memory card

total =

150 dollars

-199 price line

Nintendo Revolution = 49 dollars . . . . .

I realize I guessed those prices but I think I was quite accurate

I'm assuming that LOZ: TP will have been out for at least a few months at the time (if this was an Xmas promo, it should've been out for the better part of a year by then), so it's probably ready for a price drop... especially with the next generation console out and all.

I was guessing the barebones console as $99 and assuming they'd give you a deal on a bundle like that:

Console: $99
Controller: $30
Memory Card: $20
SSBO: $50

and figure they'd be willing to pack in a last generation game to get people to pick up these bundles

Of course if the console is $149, they could do the same bundle at the $249 price point... still beats the crap out of the competition, but it doesn't have the same ring that a sub $200 bundle does.

I was remembering the idea for the Beatles Revolution song, and I thought that although appropriate perhaps it isn't the best song for Nintendo to use.

1)The cost to get a Beatles song in a commercial is going to pretty high.
2)It really isn't an upbeat song, but a contemplative song.  It's for showing a concept or a system.  Not for showing fun.

Anyway, I heard a song that I think is fun and would work for Nintendo advertising IF they keep the name Revolution.

Artist: Jars of Clay
Song:  Revolution.

The chorus is really the hook for the commercial:

so if you know the words then try to sing along
and when you get the beat grab a hammer bang a gong
cause you don't got to fight or make yourself belong
to be a revolution, alright!
to be a revolution, alright!

I see a commercial that plays off of Nintendo's rich history and new vision.

The commercial will flash between classic Nintendo games and new Revolution game footage, and shots of people/families/friends playing with the Revolution Controller much like the teaser video Nintendo released earlier does.

The idea is to capture a spirit of energy and fun.  

Then the end can be the tag line. "FEEL THE GAME."

If you need to use the verses of the songs two of them also work well for commercials.

1)
If you wanna learn to play the rock guitar
then throw down your guns you gotta be a star
you gotta begin with who you know you are
to be a revolution

cause the time is right to cross that line
to let love find a way

or

2)
Peace takes a taxi to the underground
I wanna love the world but I don't know how
I blame it on the DJ playing all the fast songs
Ain't spinnin anything I can sing along


The first verse I typed really shows off the idea remembering yourself and remembering that games are about fun, and embrassing the joy of games again.

The second verse, kinda plays off the direction games have been going.  Slowly dying because of complexity and sameness.  Nothing is inspiring and you want to love gaming, but its not catching your eye anymore.

Wow, Spak, this song owns.  Yeah, that would be a pretty amazing commercial.  But I think that every commercial Nintendo does for the Revolution should end in the same way: just like the teaser ended, with the phone ringing (the distraction can be different every commercial, not necessarily a phone ringing) and the person pressing power.  The TV goes to a black screen.  The camera zooms in on the black screen until all you can see is black.  Then "Nintendo Revolution: Feel the Game" fades in.  These commercials should begin airing 1.5-2 months before release.  Below "Feel the Game" would be a price point and release date.  I say no game footage in the actual system commercials, just controller footage, much like the teaser.  Game footage should be in the actual game commercials, which should air just as frequently, if not more so.

EDIT: Oh my God Jason, that owns all slogans.  "When the Revolution comes, you will not be spared."  That would be great.  I think the actual slogan should be "Feel the Game" but your idea could be used as a theme for commercials (much like "Who are you?" which was priceless).

How about this:

Open to an angry crowd of demonstrators in a parking lot somewhere... chanting something (maybe "Revolution")... all of them are wearing Mario-style hats and gloves. Picketers with signs showing interlocking revolution controllers.

Flash to a dark brick wall with a sign that's a little too dark to read... cop cars race past and the lights from the car light up the sign, a Mario-gloved fist with the word "Revolution" under it.

Then a shot of a guy in a Mario suit (like they had at E3) playing some unseen revolution game using the controller as a gun. Sounds of gunfire and shrieking in the background, fade to black

White text:

Just a friendly warning to our competition...

*fades*

When the Revolution comes, you will not be spared!

*gunshot*


Then flash a release date and MSRP for the console...

Another idea:

Ninjas engaged in some well-choreographed, really complex swordfight. Midway through the commercial, start the view rotating around the scene. When the view is from the opposite site, the same battle is going on, only the ninjas are weilding revolution controllers instead of swords... when it rotates back, they're swords again.

End commercial with revolution controller view (not swords) and have one of the combatants take a minor cut on the cheek from the other...

Flash to a Revolution logo.


---

Other ideas:

Second commercial  with the Ninjas where they're fighting and one gets disarmed, pulls nunchucks off the wall...  you can see where that's going...

How about a slap at the competition: Maybe "Play in their world, compete in ours" commercials for SSB Online?

In a perfect world, the commercial would star a guy in a giant Revolution costume that talks trash.

"Yeah, I was hanging out with the 360 the other day, and he said something about you guys not knowing how to party?"

"The PS3 experience is so amazing! Whenever I play it, I really see the broken dreams."

"I'm not saying Ken Kutaragi is insane... but he did once greenlight the PSP."

"Xbox 360: 512 MB of POS-RAM."

"I really liked Perfect Dark Zero the first time I saw it... when it was called Rogue Agent.

But this isn't a perfect world, so I guess it should be something hip to get the attention of the yuppie audience, but at the same time, it should remain Nintendo enough not to alienate the current fans. How about something like this...

A blank white room. Up creaps the Revolution controller (kinda like the TGS video). Then we zoom into the HOME button and up starts a gameplay montage. A good 45 seconds of different games. Then we fade back into the controller, and then back to nothingness. Then the slogan appears:

"Revolutionary Control."


Kind of cheesy, but it gets the job done.

"Arm Yourself" isn't too bad, actually.  If they are keeping the name "Revolution", it fits very well, in fact.

I think somebody already mentioned a commercial with a sword-fighting scene where it cuts between them using actual swords and Revolution controllers.  With the "Arm Yourself" thing, they could do that as well as other things - for some reason I can't get the idea out of my head of dueling cowboys about to do a quick-draw with Revolution remotes in their holsters.  But as it's more than a gun it would only be one of a few commercials or mixed in a montage with scenes like the swordfighting.  (After that banned Xbox 360 controller where everyone's got their fingers like imaginary guns at each other, guns probably won't be a focus at all...though Duck Hunt would be a very good example for the retro downloads...)

The slogan might not go too well with a cooking game, but I think a cooking game is a hard sell...I could be wrong, though.  It would be neat to see vegetables being cut with the controller and food being tossed by an imaginary wok while someone's holding the controller where its handle would be, though.

The slogan will be "Nintendo Kickin Ass and takin names"

The Logo will be Reggies face holding a Revolution Logo


THe commercial will be 360 and PS3 sitting in the park duking it out and Rev will come onto screan all giant sized and step onto the other 2. Then show some footage of games and gamers using the revmote.


Or they could use Perms commercial it was cool.

Good concepts people. What about " Get in the game" or "Play it right" "Nothing else is better" put Jackie Chan in there playing a fighting(this would be for Asian or maybe US ads) game doing some trademark stuff with the Rev controller. "The right way to play" I like " Feel the game" though that was a good one. I could come up with more but i'll stop.
