Was this the most controversial Dreamcast ad?

I've been taking a look through issues of the Spanish Official Dreamcast Magazine and noticed this rather cheeky advert in Issue 12 for Jet Set Radio....

Don't remember there being any issues when it was published although you'll never get away with it now! :lol:

The advertising I remember in the UK for the Dreamcast was pathetic at best! The main adds were 4 blokes in a barber shop cutting hair - there was NO Dreamcast gameplay footage at all and a big part of me feels this is why Sega didn't get off to a great start in the UK.

It just wasn't 'cool' advertising!
Dreamcast, it's still thinking.

"QUIET! You will listen to this facts..." XD
I would love to get all tv spots from this campaign. Very funny and more "dreamcast" than the barber shop spots.

I guess Germany has always had some respect for SEGA.
