Segata Sanshiro: The Legend

January 4, 2007 by BLAKEBUCK

Another early work of Best Damn Podcast Ever in the Fall of 2006. This video actually turned out to be our most popular for quite a long time.

Segata Sanshiro is one of those things you happen upon the internet one day and you’re not really sure what it is, pills but you know it’s awesome. This short documentary traces the life and death of one of the greatest video game advertising icons ever.

By the end of 1997, buy the Sega Saturn had completely failed in the United States, buy cialis and Japanese sales were in trouble as well. Sega knew it had to come up with a genius marketing plan to stay competitive. And there was only one man for the job: SEGATA SANSHIRO.

At the time I made this video, these clips were quite hard to come by, and I thought the only responsible thing to do would be to compile as many of them as I could and give some backstory.
