It might seem obvious to intelligent people that a parent should check the age ratings on videogames if that parent doesn’t want his or her child to be playing mature titles, but as I’ve said in the past, the majority of breeders are like most people — stupid. Fortunately, Idaho’s Attorney General is here to save the day, partnering with the ESRB to produce the above TV spot. Now our children will finally be safe from all that pretend violence and can watch something without any violent content, like Tom & Jerry cartoons … oh wait.
While it’s sad that society needs such an obvious commercial, at least it’s a positive step forward in the education of stupid parents the world over. Whether those spawners actually pay attention, however, is another matter. In the meantime, let’s all sit back and watch Lawrence Wasden as he shows us what videogame cases look like.
Man, that’s a cringeworthy commercial.
