Deep Silver successfully trolls CNN with GAT V

GameZone writes, "Being the marketing geniuses they are, Deep Silver promoted the "#GATV" hashtag. Why? Because in the hustle and bustle of the mainstream media world, many traditional outlets don't take the time to actually research a game (or maybe the brain simply looks past the two mixed letters -- we've all seen that post with the scrambled letters that your brain can read as long as the first and last letter are the same... right?). Either way, the results are hilarious and I'd say their promotion has been quite successful." (PC, PS3, Saints Row 4, Xbox 360)
