[ # ] BTWF ads: Andre Gower for Atari 2600’s E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial
October 30th, 2017 under Before They Were Famous, Lara Jill Miller


Before Andre Gower was part of The Monster Squad, he was in a commercial for a video game that brought down Atari 2600. How cute was the 9-year-old playing the E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial videogame back in 1982?

Now, how I found out about this ad is an interesting story. The Goldberg’s creator Adam F Goldberg went on Twitter asking if anyone knew who was in that commercial. Gimme A Break’s Lara Jill Miller Tweeted him back that it was her childhood friend Andre Gower. Gower also confirmed it was him. See Hollywood is a small place after all.

BTW when I saw Goldberg’s Tweet, I did some research and also found it was Gower. Imagine if they had the internet in the ’80’s? Then that game would have buried much deeper in New Mexico! Like Area 51 deep.
