Throwback: First Outdoor Laser Tag TV Commercial In Australia

The Very First Outdoor Laser Tag TV Ad In Australia (Maybe The World)


Here is a fun throwback.

This TV commercial is from way back in 2001. We wrote the TV script back in 2000 and it was first aired on TV in 2001.

It is our first outdoor laser tag TV ad. The first TV ad that showcased outdoor laser tag in Australia. 

In fact it might be the very first outdoor laser tag ad in the world!

Gaming Guns Still Popular

The two main gaming gun models features in this original television ad are still popular. The Morita Sniper Rifle is still in the manufacturing line up from Battlefield Sports. 

Likewise, the Sub Machine Gun (SMG) featured in the TVC was originally much larger then the current model Scorpion, and was originally called "Bulldog".
