284

Ganked from the cooling, sodden corpse of .

Watch the banned XBox 360 ad.
Now, I’m not likely going to buy the game system, but this ad is
brilliant. Very wierd, quirky and approrpiate musical selection as
well. It also playes up the tension surprisingly well at the beginning,
given the content. Bang! Adults going hog-wild cops-and-robbers style
in the big city. A must-view.

While you’re at it, check out this XBox 360 ad.
Rapidly-escalating water balloon warfare in the inner city. Yeah! Its
musical selection is even more disturbingly appropriate, and it’s a
seriously fun ad that, like the first, made me laugh yet also think
about serious issues.

Both offer very interestingly recontexted old tropes. Bravo.
