Wreck It Ralph gets retro TV commercial

Disney releases a vintage television commercial to promote its upcoming computer animated movie Wreck It Ralph.

The movie, which stars John C. Reilly as an Eighties videogame villain trying to turn over a new leaf and become a good guy, features cameos from a host of iconic videogame characters, including Street Fighter II’s Zangief, Sonic The Hedgehog and Q*Bert.

The commercial doesn’t actually promote the movie but Ralph’s 1982 arcade game Fix It Felix Jr, which looks like a cross between Donkey Kong and Rampage and sees Ralph play a brick-lobbing villain.

The viral video captures the feel of a vintage television commercial brilliantly, complete with cheesy voice over guy and bad VHS quality video.

Wreck It Ralph opens November. Until then, you can check out that awesome viral commercial here.
