In honor of the recent 15th Anniversary of my baby Crash Bandicoot, I present collected together the original suite of American TV Ads which premiered in September of 1996. It’s the suit that helped make the Bandicoot what he was.
Thanks to Playstation Museum for collecting and uploading these. You’re hurting my elbow!

Hey Andy! Happy Anniversary! I can’t believe it’s been 15 years! I was just talking about these ads the other day….to date these will go down in history as one of the best campaigns I managed. A definite shout out to the Chiat creative team – the best ever – awesome!
Hey Andy, it’s me again. I was zoning around youtube and I found this:
Was there just one actor who played the Crash suit or numerous?
Haha I like thae cosplay suit.
Those commercials are so funny XD!
I saw also the ones for Crash Bandicoot 3 and Crash Team Racing. Why For Crash Bandicoot 2 there is only the one with the 3D model of Crash?
Crash 2 has some really good ones with the suited guy. He’s trying to get thru airport security with his jetboard and some other funny moments.
I’ve never seen it. usually I research them on YouTube because I don’ t think that in Italy these spots have never been shown on TV.
I found that commercial a couple of minutes ago! It’s really funny! Ah, memories:
Good stuff. There is another airport one with the waterboard (jetboard) whatever we called it.
“Woah! Hello!” XD.
This kind of commercial exist also for The Wrath of Cortex and for Crash Nitro Kart. (The last one exist also in italian).
There are lots of fun Crash ads from around the world. The Japanese suit ones for Crash 2,3 and CTR are hilarious too.
I found yet another Crash 2 ad but WAY more funnier than the first:
Hacking the computers to play some Crash 2, you silly bandicoot
“Quiet or I’ll crush you” made me rofl
Hi! As a great fan of the series, and a musician, I made a couple of short pieces in the style of the old Crash games. After finding out about this site and that this anniversary was quite recently, I just couldn’t resist posting them here. So here’s to Crash and you (although I realize I’m a bit late… at least it’s the right year :D)
That “plumber boy” had no chance…
never too late!
I thought so! I’d really, really appreciate a short comment regarding those compositions of mine, if it isn’t too much asked 🙂
