Stiq Figures, July 15 - 21: Super Mario Advance 4 Edition

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter.

Delving into old gaming commercials reminded of us of the totally bizarre "Who Are You?" advertising campaign Nintendo used during their support of the Game Boy Advance and Gamecube.

This commercial for Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros 3 even wedged itself into movie theaters, reminding us all of that frenzied after-school sprint to the nearest game store on release day. It was never as cinematic when we raced our classmates for the last copies of a game, but at least we didn't all arrive at the store as creepy, partial clones of our favorite protagonists.
