If you're mentally subnormal, then Electronic Arts has a trailer that's going to definitely appeal to your sensibilities. This video for SimCity Social promotes the Facebook game with a song so bad, it makes EA's Christmas carol from last year look almost acceptable. Is the man singing meant to be a pirate? Why?
As you can hear from the chorus, EA is continuing its plan to contrive yet another industry rivalry with a company that will likely ignore the trash talk, making EA look petty and juvenile in the process. The "More city, less ville" slogan is the new "Go above and beyond the call." Oh, that passive-aggression!
So EA has attempted to pick a fight with Activision, Blizzard, Valve, and now Zynga. Keep trying, EA, one day someone might bite back. I'd consider setting your sights on something like Atari, though. At least you'd score a win out of that one.
