We Don't Know What to Make of This Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed Commercial

Danica Patrick should not be in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed – but we suppose publisher SEGA may as well take advantage of her while she is. This commercial for the casual kart racer shows the Go Daddy girl racing against a couple of full grown adults dressed as Sonic the Hedgehog and AiAi from Super Monkey Ball. It’s the kind of commercial that you’d usually only find in Japan, which makes it an even more baffling spot for North America. (3DS, iPad, iPhone, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Sonic And All-Stars Racing Transformed, Wii U, Xbox 360)

It's marketing. They know the game isn't going to do too well unless they get all the Nascar fans to see she's in the game. That's their only hope of selling it. lol

Yeah, but... The game is actually really fun. So it should sell well. I don't get why she's in it at all honestly. I was like... WTF? When I played it a week ago lol.

I'm sure Danica Patrick is a nice Lady but she has won only ONE race.

So much publicity for being mediocre!!!

Lol, I don't get why its an issue. Why did Kobe Bryant do a commercial for an airline? Its marketing... it doesn't have to make sense as long as it gets people's attention which it obviously did.
