In this "Play It Loud" tattoo commercial, the beta version of the SNES Super Punch-Out!! featuring the brown-haired boxer before he was changed to the blond-haired boxer in the finished version. Thanks to Nester for scanning and uploading them.
Hate to say this since I've only viewed the last page of this thread, but this is a playlist of a bunch of old video game commercials that may or may not already have been posted. They aren't all Nintendo, but most of them are....

That "Shinobi's BACK!" gamer appears to be Masi Oka (a.k.a. Hiro Nakamara from NBC's Heroes).
Anyway, the only point of that commercial for various LCD handhelds I can think of is that they are happy to be out of school while they are enjoying them LCD handheld games before the Game Boy became widely known.

Here an old Master System commercial. I posted one similar to this before, but I don't think I've posted this exact one.
I like watching classic game commercials because it's like a trip back in time where you can see the different mentality there was about video games.
Sega's advertising wasn't too remarkable during the Master System era, but there were other ads like this for video games (particularly during the Atari era). It took more of a "home electronics" approach, rather than trying to be edgy and appeal to a specific demographic. We see the kids playing, but their father is playing, too, so it's portrayed as kind of a family activity. Sound familiar? I guess game advertising has come full circle.
I especially like the part where the father says, "Sega's the one." (And I thought it was Neo. )
And how can you not miss the days when "scrolling backgrounds" was a notable feature?
Though, I already showed this earlier, and I'm not quite interested in the Castlevania series, I just thought some of you would enjoy this commercial. I found it at Nico Nico Douga and sent it to gameads.gamepressure.com, while the owner of the gameads website uploaded this exact one on YouTube.
