I typically don't find television ads to be too awesome. Most of them, to be honest, would probably land on the "not awesome" list if I cared to waste my time and post on that kind of stuff. Since this blog is much too important for that, however, I don't bother.
Over the past two weeks I've been entranced with the new ad for Halo 3. Now, I've never played Halo 1 or 2, and I don't plan on playing Halo 3. This is mostly because I can't stand playing first-player games. I get headaches, plus I suck. Not sure which is the chicken or the egg there.
Anywho, this commercial is awesome. So awesome, in fact, that it almost made me suck it up and just buy a shitload of Advil so that I could play it. The commercial does something that good movies can do...it causes me to feel some emotion. And there's no words!
First feeling: oh shit, earth is getting destroyed. As the ad continues, the music moves me to feel the slightest bit of hope...that the humans just might have a fighting chance against these douche-bag aliens who are attacking us for no good reason. That's, of course, if you don't suck at playing the game and blow it for all of us. I'll leave it to others to save us from impending doom.
So kudos to the fuckers who came up with this piece. It almost did its job by getting me to buy it.
