Microsoft turns down best ad ever. - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Lol. That's just like playing "guns" when we were kids! Back in the days before the PC police came along. First it was just pointing sticks and yelling "BAng! Gotcha! You are SOOOO dead!" (Nuh-uh, no I'm not)


Then we got our Red Ryder pump-action BB guns and stung the bejeezus outta each other. There's no hacking in CS:Reality. Unfortunately, head-shots were a no-no.

It's actually not a threatening action, UNLESS your hand is held inisde a coat pocket or sweater or something. Still, at that point, I'd be more worried about being shot to death then what would likely be a misdemenor.

I have no idea why it was pulled, seems like nothing you can't see on TV any time of the day except with real (prop) guns and explosions and fake blood.

:shrug:


I also don't think it's the "best commercial ever" though
