I know Tetris was developed in 1984 by Alexy Pajitnov in the former Soviet Union, and I know it was based on the board game Pentominoes, but is it possible that some of the inspiration came from this old Trabant ad, from also behind the Iron Curtain in the former East Germany?
I mean, probably not, but some advanced tetrisization will be required for that poor bastard in the lab coat to load up all those boxes of whatevers into that little Trabant wagon there.
They couldn’t have let the guy use a van? No one had a real van around for him to chuck those things into? They’re really going to make him try and cram those 20-something boxes into every available cubic inch of space in the back of that Trabi?
Shit, no wonder the Eastern Bloc collapsed.
