Show Us Your Balls.

So as some of you may or may not know, I work for an on-line based media and advertising company in Vancouver BC.

We do some pretty crazy and random ad campaigns, and this is the most recent one we made lol.

If you actually double click the YouTube video and go to the YouTube page you can view the video in HD there.

I just thought I'd post it here for everyone who's interested to check it out. It's sort of a fun online media experiment that anyone can jump in on.

If you have any questions about the campaign or AdHack hit me up! I'm the community manager there.

Boy Buys Madden, Finds Disc Labeled 'Redneck SH*T'

by on

When Michael's son bought a copy of Madden NFL 09 using his Christmas money, the wee lad got both more and less than he bargained for.

Instead of an Xbox 360 disc and accompanying manual, the son found a blank disc labeled "Redneck SHlT," reports The Consumerist.

Though the game packaging sported all of the usual security stickers, Michael found that scotch tape was used to re-seal the game's shinkwrap, leading him to believe that someone else bought the game and returned it, sans disc, to his local Walmart.

The duo is expected to swap "Redneck SHlT" for a genuine copy of Madden today.

I wonder if there was any data on the disc? LOLOL

Health warning labels like cigarettes on games?

by on

Above mage made by me.

Story belowfrom Kotaku

Do violent video games need health warning labels? California congressman Joe Baca thinks so, and he's introduced legislation that would make them mandatory. Citing research studies that show a link between violent video games and child aggression, Baca believes that the Consumer Product Safety Commission needs to institute a rule that all games rated T or higher be labeled with the following: "WARNING: Excessive exposure to violent video games and other violent media has been linked to aggressive behavior."

"We must hold the video game industry accountable and do everything in our power to ensure parents are aware of the detrimental effects that violent games can have before making decisions on which games are appropriate for their children to play," concluded Rep. Baca. "I am proud to introduce the Video Game Health Labeling Act of 2009, and am hopeful my legislation can work to stop the growing influence of violent media on America's children and youth."

Hey, I'm all for it, if Baca can come up with solid, irrefutable scientific proof that this is indeed the case. We've seen countless research reports arguing both sides of the subject; let's nail down something definitive before we start uglying up our game store shelves. I've a feeling this won't go anywhere and Joe Baca will go back to Kashyyyk.

WTF?! Ubisoft Announces Grey's Anatomy Video Game?!?!?

by on


SHlT JUST GOT REAL. The end of days is upon us. Start buying bottled water and canned foods.

Publisher Ubisoft will be transforming the five-season television series into interactive entertainment, promising an "all-new original storyline" that could force players to balance love and work as they "make important personal and professional decisions."

That's right. Take a moment to confirm with your brain that you just F*cken read that correct.

WTF is the point of the game? Sleep with everyone in the hospital then cry about it?

"CONGRATULATIONS YOU SLEPT WITH THE ENTIRE OFFICE"

Office Bicycle GOLD TROPHY AWARDED - Every-ones had a ride! YAY!!!

No word yet as to if the game will explore the implications of actual sexual relations with the ghost of your dead ex-fiance, who just happened to be a millionaire--something that actually happened on the show. Seriously. You can't make this stuff up. I tried.

AND NEITHER DOES THIS GAME.

Holy crap lay off the crack pipes Ubisoft.

Logitec Builds Crazy Robo Cop Looking Gaming Rig

by on

WTF IS THIS?!

Well I'll tell you what that is.

Logitech today took the wraps off of three new PC gaming peripherals: A color LCD-toting keyboard, a 5000-dpi mouse and a 7.1-channel surround sound headset.

It's a part of what they have called the G-Series.

Ruben Mookerjee, Logitech's director of product marketing for gaming said "The G-series product line is all about seeing how far we can push the envelope."

Envelope officially pushed.

Look at all those cables?! You couldn't make some of it wireless?! and WTF is that crazy num pad with a joystick on the left. This setup reminds me of this:

The G19 keyboard features a tiltable 320-by-240 pixel color GamePanel LCD that can display in-game details from more than 60 games. Yes, including World of Warcraft so don't even ask in the comments cause we all know you were going to if i didn't put that.

The display can also show computer details, void data and even pictures or videos. Yes that's right, for 200$ you to can check your in game status, switch to some LOLCAT photos and watch porn while you raid the humans all ON YOUR KEYBOARD.

That's right...they keyboard, due out in March, will sell for $200.

The keyboard also includes 12 programmable keys, with three macros per key, two 2.0 USB ports and a game mode switch that disables the Windows key. So next time you get owned by a head shot and slam your keyboard screaming HACKER!!!!! you at least wont accidental minimize your game and return to windows and crash.

The G35 surround sound headset includes 7.1 surround sound support, a microphone, six voice-morphing options (for when you want to sound like a child rapist or the guy from SAW online), three programmable keys on the left earpiece to control voice morphing, and volume, microphone mute and surround sound controls.

The headset also comes with three swappable headbands...incase one gets to sweaty? I guess? They don't explain if they are different sizes or just swappable. Regardless, your headset is the f*cken megazord.

The headphones, also due out in March, will sell for $130.

Finally, the G9x Laser Mouse includes on-the-fly adjustable dpi from 200 to 5000 dpi, two interchangeable grips (in case you recently watched too much porn on your LCD screen keyboard I guess??:?), on-board memory for up to five profiles, a weight-tuning system and custom-color LEDs.

The G9x, due out in April, will sell for $100.

So you can have this awesome Robo Cop gaming setup for the sweet tune of 430 dollars + tax.

As a Robo Cop fan I think the only thing I can say now is...

"I'd buy that for a dollar!"
