Controversial Super Meat Boy Advertisement
Posted by Corbie Dillard
Team Meat attempts to stir up some interest in their upcoming WiiWare title.
As far as advertising goes, there are several ways to draw attention to your product. You can pay thousands of dollars to an advertising firm to come up with an extremely catchy slogan or jingle that will make your product instantly recognizable to consumers, or you can do what the developers of the upcoming WiiWare title Super Meat Boy did and offend every vegetarian on the face of the planet by likening them to Adolf Hitler. Can you guess which one is cheaper?
We'd love to be there when someone at Nintendo gets a load of this little advertising campaign. But you know what they say, there's no such thing as bad publicity. At least Super Meat Boy will be getting some exposure and hopefully we won't have to wait too much longer for the WiiWare release.
Now we know that Team Meat certainly isn't really likening vegetarians to Adolf Hitler, but we're quite curious to see what type of reaction this little piece of artwork elicits. You can take a look at the advertisement below to see for yourself. We'd love to hear what you think of it.
