In the latest edition of WHAT IN THE F*CK, THQ?, we bring news that the publisher has employed a selection of ladies from the pages of Penthouse to work as quality testers with Saints Row: The Third. THQ's marketing for this game has jumped the shark so many times it has become the shark.
Heather Vandeven, Justine Joli, Heidi Baron, Shay Laren, Ryan Keely, and Nikki Benz are all on board.
"We personally handpicked this QA team and the Penthouse brand based on a number of key factors: their passion for Saints Row, their sense of style and Saints Row attitude, and above all, their desire to give every player a unique, over-the-top, unforgettable experience," said lead producer Greg Donovan. "In the end, their selfless efforts are going to put a lot of smiles on a lot of faces."
Yeah ... I foresee various Tumblr blogs with garish pink color schemes being really annoyed by this little stunt. Game's going to be fantastic regardless.
