What commercials for Rare games do you like or remember?

I watched this Banjo Tooie one all the time on Cartoon Network:

And I'm just now finding out there is a behind-the-scenes for it:

This is the japanese comercial, but I'm at least 99% sure we had the same in germany since I remember a lot of the visuals:

That and the fact that I was so impressed by the trailer that I went and got the game right after seeing it. :D

There's one that I can vividly remember, I sometimes get the song stuck in my head when I think of it.

My family still have an old VHS somewhere with Jurassic Park taped off the TV back in the '90s, where we paused the recording during commercial breaks to cut out all of the ads except for one - the "Donkey Kong Land 2" ad, which we decided to record because we thought it was so cute and funny. So in the middle of Jurassic Park with people being ripped apart by dinosaurs, suddenly this shows up to lighten the mood :lol: :

I don't remember ever actually seeing a Rare commercial on TV.
I'm actually hard-pressed to remember seeing any video game commercials on TV back then.
No, not all Xbox owners are dudebros who love grey-and-brown PvP FPSes. Please feel free to quit stereotyping now.
