Educational Outrun and False Advertising

That's right, not only is OutRun one of the best racing games ever created, but it can teach kids not to drink and drive, as this brilliant 80's educational short illustrates, posted at Youtube by Strange Findings, an account set up as part of I recall seeing this on TV of all places when I as a kid, and it urged me to hunt down a Outrun cabinet down the seafront. The best I could find was Outrunners, but thanks to the Saturn with the Sega Ages disc, I got to play it arcade perfect at home. Fantastic.

In other news, check out this Portuguese Game Gear commercial, submitted at Youtube by SMSpower, that falsely shows off Mega Drive games being run on it. Tut tut tut, Sega.
