Cracker commercial.


For those US members and maybe others the current TV cheez-it cracker commercial is basically a spinoff from the tux racer game.

Extreme Tux Racer (etr) is the modern version likely in your distros repo, and it even works well on very old hardware. Simple but fun. There was even an arcade version made of some version of it at some point a couple decades ago.

The advert even has a penguin in the closing scene! But I've never seen tux lose his clothes (not that he wears any) in the game before....
