I’m not even going to mention how long it’s been since I posted something here.
Before people played Angry Birds and chased imaginary Pokemon, there was Simon Says.
Here’s two commercials back to back for this obnoxious computerized toy, although I am focusing on the first one from 1980.
Go Johnny, go!
Johnny is like the coolest kid in school because he totally slays at Simon Says.
Step aside, Pinball Wizard, there’s a new guy in town.
But as for me?
I sucked at this game. Bip, boop, bop. Red, green, green, yellow, blue.
The slogan was “Simon’s a computer, Simon has a brain, you either do what Simon says or else go down the drain.”
I hated Simon. He wasn’t a nice computer, not at all. There was no way that I could keep up with him. He was just way too smart for me, what with all of his blinking colors and shit.
I swear one time while I was playing with him, he told me to go walk the yellow line.
Did you have a Simon Says? Were you able to beat him?
