Walmart/Modern Warfare 2 advertising juggernaut engage!


9:40 AM on 10.30.2009



It has begun.

With Modern Warfare 2 a mere two weeks away, evil publisher Activision has rolled out its advertising campaign of death. Expect total media saturation over the next fortnight, with Activision backed up by American retail titan Walmart. You will not escape Modern Warfare 2.

This video is the first step. It's a Walmart/MW2 joint commercial that features a rather old joke -- two males having a most "hilarious" trash talk session. Personally I think it would have been more fitting, given recent circumstances, to have had a commercial where terrorists burst into a Walmart and gun the shoppers down.

It would also be quite satisfying to see, since I've been in a Walmart before and most of the people in there are scum. Especially the slugs who can clearly walk but are riding scooters around.

Anyway, check out the video. It's right there.
