WCW = Woefully Cheesy Wrestling?

December 1989

Wonder Woman #37

Here is an ad that is elegant in its simplicity – no fancy screenshots, no exciting description of the game – in fact, other than “BE A VIDEO WARRIOR!” at the top, this is probably the most matter-of-fact ad that I’ve come across.

Apparently, if you’re a fan of WCW, this is all you need to know, and if you’re not, then they’re not going to waste your time.

As always, I like to read the fine print, and find it quite interesting that there’s a “Phone Counseling Hotline” included at the end of this ad. Counseling for what?? Are they assuming that anyone who would buy this game has some kind of mental problems, ’cause that’s kind of what they’re making it sound like!
