For relaxing times...

Too much? I don't think so. Can you imagine living in a culture where videogames were so prevalent that this commerical would make sense to enough people to merit airtime? I can. I would call it the United Republic of B A Start readers.


  1. I would call it Japan.

    I wrote a paper a few years ago about how Sony had so much trouble marketing the ps to the States because we, as a culture, still consider video games to be children's playthings. Any adults who play them are on par with the Simpson's Comic Book Guy.

    I don't think Sony's too worried about it, since they can't seem to keep the damn things on the shelf, regardless.

  2. That commercial is awesome. More than once, I've needed a drink that'll give me back that 100hp.

  3. it's 100 HP per gulp - you could be down to nothing and chug and be a-ok!

  4. I wish many of my encounters were turn-based. Sometimes you just need a second to think about whether to heal or attack. Or let your miniature saguaro attack for you.
