Destructoid's new ad campaign gets violently happy


Update: The banners were rejected. They asked me to tone it down. Foiled again! Maybe I should just run these on 4chan instead.

I was in New York last week and ran into a guy that runs a popular dating site called /b/ or something like that, the name escapes me. Actually, it's OkCupid. Since we're both independent we thought hey, let's help each other out and run a banner ad trade for each other and see if we can't get our users to give each other's bear aids (tm).

"What the hell kind of banner ads should we run on a dating site?", I pondered.

I know! It should it be about how to meet/scare the ten lovely women that read Destructoid. I can see it now:

"Call Elsa & Atheistium for a good time! -click here-"

Maybe not. Anyway, what I came up with is attached in the gallery below. I hope you're amused and coming over later with the blow torches and chainsaws.

- It takes a lot to make a stew

About Papa Nieroone of us since 9:58 PM on 03.16.2006

I've been writing about video games on Destructoid for almost 12 years. It would be insane to stop now. I do a lot of stuff behind the scenes here, but mostly my job is to keep Destructoid weird.

Also I'm a playable character in Retro City Rampage:

(along with the whole 2009 Dtoid Editorial team)

Sometimes I have a villainous mustache

My dog CoCo checks all my work for bugs:

I've been to Japan a dozen times. Tokyo's my favorite place, ever. Good food, good people.

Sometimes I do volunteer stuff between gigs:

My advice to people who want to work in videogames is to just start doing the work, even if you do it incredibly poorly at first, until it just happens.

You want to be a writer?

Write daily. Eventually, you become a writer. Don't overthink it, that's all there is to it.

Live your dream! You only have one ticket, you may as well go for it.

Until then, here's a photo of me doing the nightly site backups of the community blogs:
