I was watching NFL football recently and a commercial aired for a video game. I’ll admit the chant in the ad caught my attention. I was curious about which product was being advertised so I watched to the end. Definitely didn’t expect a video game! Take a look…
The Reaction. I’m not a “gamer” nor am I their target audience (based on this ad, at least), but it doesn’t look like the commercial is going over well with CoD fans. I’ll save you the trouble of reading the YouTube comments and sum them up in 2 words: commercial sucks. I might have found 2 or 3 comments that liked it but other than those, viewers are hating it big time. Like the guy who wrote this article about his love for the game but his disappointment in the ad.
The Cast. Check here for more details of the commercial with a few quotes from the creators at Activision plus, it’s where I found a pretty good list of cast members, including:
Nicki Minaj, Lil Baby, Pete Davidson, Kane Brown, Jalen Ramsey, David Long Jr., Nuke Squad (they posted a behind the scenes video), Lando Norris, and Bukayo Saka.
US of A. This commercial plays off the military cadence “left, left, left, right left” so I thought I’d leave you with patriotic photographs from my own personal collection. These are all available for download or purchase, so if you and your squad want to decorate your fancy gaming rooms, order one today!
Thanks for dropping in…
