TGH Writes: "It is a sad day when the epic battle of New Old Spice Guy (Fabio) and Old Old Spice Guy has affected the gaming world. Earlier today Old Old Spice guy did a video response to Cliff Bleszinski's twitter question."
whoda known the old spice guy had anything to do with gears of war ...
Hello Ladies, look at your man, now back at me I'm on a..
old old spice guy >> new old spice guy
Gears is a 1st person shooter? that's news to me.
pretty sure Gears is 3rd person! I should know, I played it.
Stupid, its not even funny.
"Ruining 1st person shooters for ever." Funny, Old spice guy, thought GeOW3 was a 3rd person shooter.
... isn't he a character in the game? To him, it's a first-person shooter. :D
Maybe he meant that it would somehow ruin all first person shooters, while sparing GOW, which isn't one.
Oddly enough, MANY people consider it an FPS. I don't really get why though, but trust be, he is by far not the only one.
they need to bring this guy back to old spice and no one should reply back to the cliffy b troll
Well, an obvious give away that they know not what they speak of.
The word they were looking for was DEflected. Not reflected.
fabio commercial was not funny
Fabio is better.
ummm WHAT ABS? He's slackin on his workouts cuz there's no abs present to deflect bullets with. Also, i can see why some thin Gears is a 3rd person shooter. It's REALLY close over the shoulder, more so than other TPSs, which almost gives it the feel of being in first person.
He said FPS not TPS. And the Old Spice Guy makes the game more epic.
True, and funniest Old Spice video yet.
I would say it was the worst Old Spice video yet. Saying 'the real cliffy b' makes it even worse. I would say this is not good marketing... at all.
@Focker, ohh right, so this made you want to want to buy GeOW less now right?
They weren't trying to market anything. Its the thing they are doing today. Anyone on the internet can ask Old Spice Guy or Fabio a question via twitter. and TheRealCliffyB is cliffy's Twitter account.
I agree completely that this is a joke and that anyone can ask a question. It is hard to argue that this isn't viral/internet marketing in any form. They mention the game, which he just so happens to be in, and the developers twitter. I just don't think this is PURE coincidence, which is the only case that would make this not marketing. You don't have to agree with me, but I just graduated with a degree in Marketing, I know about these techniques. A big part of Marketing is to make some consumer think they AREN'T being marketed to, since that turns some audiences off. Do you like Pop-Up's? Of course not, that is bad marketing. This on the other hand uses humor, much more consumer friendly. EDIT: And even if it wasn't a paid spot, that doesn't stop it from being an attempt to market the game.
i dont even read your comment i just go strait to the disagree.
Wow that was awful. I'm embarrassed to admit I even saw it. Plus when are people going to learn the difference between First person and Third person. Gears of War is a 'Third' person shooter, not a 'First' Person shooter.
+Bubbles man. That shit was funnier than the ad.
I don't know how the hell you got disagrees when what you said was complete fact.
@Electroshocked You missed the joke portion of it also.
@radphil Could you possibly enlighten me then? Edit: Also am I or am I not right about what he said was fact?
It's obvious why - people disagreed with the very first statement he made: "Wow that was awful." The disagrees liked the advert.
@Electroshocked He said it wrong on purpose, and pretty much anyone without brain damage could easily tell that after the whole "Anya" line. Though I could understand someone who has never played a Halo game and/or heard of Anya(Anya is the holographic chick in the Halo games), but if you have and STILL didn't get that the whole "fps" line was intentional, then you're a moron if you didn't catch that the slip up was intentional.
@vickers500 Sorry mate, I've never played a Halo game or a Gears of War game, that's probably why I missed the joke portion of it.
@Vickers500 Well sir do you have it? Because if you played any Gears of War games like I have, you would know Anya is in Gears of War. http://gearsofwar.neoseeker... Just in case you don't believe me. The hologram's name in Halo is Cortana.
@ vickers500 Thanks, now you have really confused me... the chick in halo is Cortana, not Anya.. or is there another holographic AI that is central to MC's story that I missed? Anya is the girl in Gears.. did you play one and two?
Ah, I see what happened here, I got the names mixed up (seeing as how anya isn't really all that much of a memorable character, and her name "kind of" rhymes with cortana, I guess I must have completely forgotten about anya and assumed that they were talking about halo when they said "fps"). I thought the video was about the old spice guy mistakenly referring to halo (in an intentional way). Still, I'm fairly certain it was an intentional screw up.
Focker420 bringing a whole new meaning to his name. You wouldn't get a joke if it slapped you in the face.
R u a robot sir lol Its a joke :D
I'm confused. Old Spice Guy knows everything but he calls Gears of War a first person shooter. Now I'm sad.
Microsoft/Epic.... give up the Old spice sh*T already.
I think you mean Old Spice Give up the old spice already. Ya know, since this is an Old Spice video.
I feel ya! you're right, LOL
Maybe there will be something in gears 3 that allows you to go first person all of the time?
Yeah I hate when one of the most liked and popular figures on tv-ads, in some of the coolest commercials appears in games. Going to cancel my pre order now :P
lol what a twist?
Wonder if this might hurt sales??? I know I might have nightmres now @[email protected] Don't care for the old spice guy.
Lol he didn't ruin the ending... I'm sure it's just a joke.
No... Ya think?
just a joke! funny dude though!
People always call Gears a FPS, it's so annoying.
Maybe the FPS part was apart of the joke..
I didn't even watch the video, I just saw someone talking about it in the comments. I see it all the time though, even on gaming websites and stuff, it's ridiculous how often it's referred to as a FPS.
@Breadisgood I wouldn't have admitted that. Shouldn't really comment when you haven't actually seen the article / video.
maybe having old spice body wash would make you a better gamer. Or maybe that its the world trying to tell adolescents to wash themselves.
lol i love this Old Spice guy, he's definitely the best one of the Old Spice guys
wow do celebs know anything bout video games, samuel l jackson back in spike game awards 2004 said gta sa was gta4, FAIL! and gears isnt a first person shooter its third!
jeez this guys deserves an award how could you maintain that same posture that long :D
So many comments without understanding of the video *sigh*.
you people fail
Oh my! off-topic: Team Fabio!
If the Old Spice guy said it must be true!! (No sarcasm lol)
To those that don't get it, it's a joke cause it's a TPS. Get it now :D
ITS NOT AS IF YOU ARE GOING TO SEE HIS FACE OR ANYTHING, DO ANY OF YOU PEOPLE KNOW WHO ANYA IS OR WHAT SHE LOOKS LIKE TO BE HONEST I VERY MUCH DOUBT THAT, HE IS IN GEARS OF WAR BECAUSE OF HIS VOICE YOU DUMB ASSES, GET IT RIGHT WHO YOU RATHER HAVE HAD MATT WAHLBERG DO A VOICE OVER, C`MON PEOPLE DONT HATE- APPRECIATE.
I think this guy has done amazing things for his career. The Old Spice commercials sky rocketed this guys career and has landed him a lot of opportunities. What better compliment could you give this guy if not a voice for one of the characters in the game that is the most manliest game on the market....designed by men for men. It's an "M" rated game for a reason, so that kids can keep playing their rated "T" games while the real men step up and play Gears.
Cliff likes The Spice Girls? Not surprised.
You like The Spice Boys better?
if this was Kevin Butler, and the ad was about Killzone or Uncharted 3, and it was the exact same thing. This place would be filled up with LMAO's, and LOL's all over the place. People would be talking about how great and funny the ad was. Guaranteed.
And others would be talking about how washed up KB is and how the ad sucked. I've seen it before. There are people who don't like Sony on here and make it known. Just like those who don't like MS and make it known. EDIT: Never mind, I get it know why you only see one side, took a quick scroll through your comment history, curiosity. You're one of the people that harp on and on about the SDF "Sony Defense Force" when in reality you are the MSDF. I understand why you made your comment.
Not at all... I'm MAD. A Microsoft Attack Dog.
I like the Old Spice Guy, but his delivery is lacking when compared to Kevin Butler's. Of course, I MUST be a fanboy since I find KB to be the more hilarious out of the two. Personal humor preferences have nothing to do with it! /s
