Return of the Roadrunner Commercials

If you are a longtime Misce-Looney-ous reader, you have probably seen us post one or two commercials featuring the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote. Okay, more like one or two dozen. We've seen them promoting cars, high-speed internet, breakfast cereals, the Yellow Pages, insurance, frozen dinners, credit cards, soft drinks, batteries, gas stations, delivery services, chocolate bars and much, much more. Just when we think we've seen everything, even MORE seem to surface.
Below are two more to add to the ever-growing collection.

First up, an advertisement for Meguiar's "Fast Finish" car wax:

Next, the commercial for the video game The Road Runner's Death Valley Rally for the Super Nintendo. (As seen above, they even made the cover of Nintendo Power magazine when this game came out). Also, Matthew wrote about this game in this early post.

Thanks for posting the commercial of RR's DVR. I have a poster for that game from the October 1992, Volume 41 issue of Nintendo Power magazine:

Strangely, that was the ONLY issue of Nintendo Power I ever got and still have!
