Default Question about commercial classification.

A lot of video game commercials and some movie commercials have completely original voice acting not found in said video game/movie. For example, the recent commercials for Ice Age: Collision Course have Sid telling the audience to go see the movie, and the commercial for Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins has an animated Wario hypnotizing the viewer and telling them to destroy Mario.

What I want to know is how these would be classified. Would they be classified specifically to the game/movie, to the company (like Nintendo), or in the case of games, to the console (like Game Boy)?

Hmm. That is an excellent question, Teridaxx. I'll have to bring it up with the team, but my instinct would be to create them as COMMERCIAL pages, but commercials specifically for said franchise OR said title.

ie,

"Ice Age Commercials" (for the franchise in general)

or

"Ice Age: Collision Course Commercials" (title-specific)

Personally, I'd think it would make more sense to make the page specifically for the movie or game it was advertising, rather than the franchise as a whole (unless, or course it is simply advertising the franchise as a whole).

An issue I thought of after starting this topic is that these commercials vary drastically by country, like American and Japanese commercials. We'd document these all on the same page, right?
