Classic video game ads have their own unique charms, and that's true not only for console and PC games, but arcade and pinball machines as well — in fact, they might even be a little bit crazier. You can judge for yourself over at the appropriately titled Crazy Arcade Flyers Tumblr, which bundles together some of the best around. There's everything from terrible Back to the Future impersonators to smiling Track & Field stars to, well, a whole lot of quintessentially 80s bikini babes. It's almost enough to make you want to track down a Dolly Parton pinball machine.
