    Default Kool-Aid Sweepstakes Exclusive Super NES Game?

    I came across this commercial for a contest from Kool-Aid Bursts and Kay-Bee Toys, which says the grand prize winner would've won a Super NES game "starring you". I've never heard of this before. And a Google search turned up nothing.

    Is it something that is known to actually exist? If so, it seems like it would be very rare.

    The concept reminds me of that atari 2600 birthday game that puts your name in it; I'd imagine it's one-of-a-kind if it does exist, and I can't see the winner, whoever he is, selling it anytime soon since it's probably a big part of his childhood.

    I imagine that if one was out there and someone did find it in a goodwill, it would be a weird feeling to play a game with some random strangers face in it. Like the atari birthday game or even NWC carts, its weird to own something that was so personal to someone else.

    Kinda like owning and displaying somebody elses bowling trophy.

    Wow, that would be quite a find if it exists. Looks like it was a NY area contest. It's probably sitting in someone's attic somewhere.

    It's funny how the only information that comes up about it in an Internet search is this thread.

    There's a good chance this may not even exist. What happens a lot of time with these contests is that they offer the winner a cash equivalent, and most take that instead of the prize itself. Remember the Nintendo Power contest where the winner got to appear in The Mask 2? These companies always give themselves an out in case the prize never materializes.

    This is true. I remember back in 2004 Kids WB held a sweepstakes where Static Shock for the GBA was one of the prizes. That game ended up never coming out.

    Cool commercial though. I had fun looking at all the games in the display case in the background.

    It's like finding a used Gameboy Camera then, you could use your face for some of the built in games.


    The worst part about that contest is that you'd have to drink Kool-Aid, I remember trying some as a kid after begging for it and hating it. Those guys are marketing geniuses.

    I loved Kool-Aid as a kid, but the flavors were a real crapshoot. Some I hated, but Orange, Grape, and Lemonade were great. And the best by far was Purplesaurus Rex, a combination of Grape and Lemonade.

    Oh, and I almost never had Kool-Aid with as much sugar as the directions stated. My mom just wanted to cut down on how much sugar I was drinking, but it was better that way anyway.
