A new 8-bit delight from McLaren-Honda

Everything old (from turbo power to old-skool graphics) is new again in the latest great ad from Honda. (Suddenly I’m transported back to playing Spy Hunter off the Indiana toll road…)

Autoblog notes,

Part Street Fighter and part Aryton Senna’s Super Monaco Grand Prix, Turbo Heroes is a game-style video short – the start to a series from the looks of things. It portrays an epic battle in which basic animated versions of Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso (coached by a grumpy Ron Dennis, no less) chase the evil Exhaustus in a race to recover the fabled (and equally fictitious) Jade Dragon of Suzuka to its rightful home in Japan.
