With the new release of the Ratchet & Clank movie, and the Ratchet & Clank PS4 game based on the movie that’s based on the game (I’ll role with that), I think it’s time to take a trip down memory lane to the very beginning where it all started.
From the beginning of the Ratchet & Clank franchise the series’ main attraction has always been the quirky characters, the silliness, and of course the awesome weapons. What better way to promote the first game than to produce some low-budget commercials showcasing the crazy weapons?
So grab your old Courtney Gears album and get ready take a trip down memory lane with these classic commercials…. That’s a reference from the third game isn’t it? Sorry.
Also, I’m pretty sure these commercials inspired movies like, Chronicle.

When I saw this commercial in the early 2000’s I was instantly hooked and ready to buy Ratchet and Clank. This commercial perfectly sums up how goofy and exciting the game is setting itself up to be upon it’s release.
If you watched the first commercial then you understand that the game is definitely silly, but when you watched this one…HOLY CRAP WE GET TO BLOW STUFF UP TOO?! If the goofiness of the game had you turned off then maybe the cool PS2 explosions will have you sold.
What human wouldn’t want to have a working inflatable decoy? Ya know… unless you’re plan is to scare your mom half to death, then maybe you should find another Ratchet & Clank toy to play with.
