3DO marketing in Japan

I just stumbled on this old commercial:

Lots of footage of all-Caucasian families playing on the system... Is it just me, or was that a really dumb way to advertise the 3DO in Japan? At least they got shots of Total Eclipse and Crash 'n' Burn running, though.

I remember the TV commercial. :)
back then
The CM looked like advertisement of new home electric appliances than advertisement of a game.

By the way,
The rich family with that big sitting room does not exist in Japan. :shock:
