Atari Christmas Commercial (1983): Santa in Space!

The combination of space, “Twas the Night Before Christmas,” and video games is genius, and it must have cost a pretty penny to make back in the day. The spaceship looks great, and I love how everything is cold (how about those miserable but sleek-looking sleeping quarters?) and drab until Santa shows up and starts playing all those beautiful games.

This is the first and longest version of the spot. The second version is here, and the third version is here. All of them are from ’83.
