Wu-Tang Clan Nintendo Super Game Boy Commercial, Circa 1993!

I find it hard to believe that this actually exists, even after having seen it with my own eyes. Way back in 1993, the Wu-Tang Clan did a commercial for Nintendo to promote the release of the Super Game Boy, which was a really lame device that allowed you to "colorize" game boy games by inserting them into your SNES. I have no clue as to how this came about-- I wouldn't think that the higher-ups at Nintendo would've had any clue as to who the Wu-Tang Clan were at this time, so I can't imagine how this relationship came to fruition, but it did. The commercial itself isn't all that good, so I can see why they shelved it, but it's still crazy as hell:

Yes, that actually happened...
