Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! Opening Theme Is 1950s Gillette Jingle

It never ceases to amaze me when new information comes to light about video game history. Recently Gaijillionaire posted an absolutely excellent video on YouTube detailing how Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! uses the same music featured in an old Gillette commercial that accompanied boxing on TV. It’s a fascinating watch!
