New Gamestop Ad Preys On Your Worst Fears

It is an advertising truism that Sex Sells, but so does fear. Whether it is fear of human odours fuelling deodorant marketing or fear of Terror selling a war, manipulating our darkest fears is a surefire way to get the public to sign on the dotted line.

Full marks then for Gamestop's latest ad which is all about the terror, with just a hint of sex underneath some TV-friendly pixellation. The horror.. THE HORROR.

The take home message is that you should always tell your relatives what you want for Christmas/Chanukah/Kwanzaa/Festivus although in this case 'new parents', 'a padlock' and 'a quantum of dignity' will doubtless edge out games consoles and gift tokens.

The story is too old to be commented.

Well blockbusters will give you twice as much for your trade in then Gamestop so I would say there the new spot for trade ins.

Somebody is so fired for this.

Also, none of my managers believe gamers hate Gamestop.

Voozi3676d ago (Edited 3676d ago )

Cause your manager(s) see all those dumb misinformed casuals who go to Gamestop who think it's a "hangout" for "gamers" and just stand around in the back corner staring at the same box for 30 minutes talking about nothing

That's it, that's exactly it. No joke. Most hardcore gamers you'll see in these kind of stores will just buy their games and get the hell outta there to play it. Bubbles.
