Commercial Fail: THQ Sucks at Selling Saints Row the Third

Posted by | October 14, 2011

A brief glance at this website will tell you I’m no marketing director, but even random internet scum like myself can tell when your carnival barker just blew a lot of money shouting through his megaphone at a dog. Which brings us to Saints Row the Third, a deserved sequel to the well-loved Saints Row 2. Over here is the television commercial the boys at THQ decided to run. It features some old guy and a douchebag stoner moaning out “Play Saints Roooooooow” like zombies with a console fetish, all mixed in a montage of non sequitur. Maybe three seconds of gameplay footage? Maybe?

This is the commercial they should have run.

    When you’ve got a game that sells itself, why try to hide it?

    That commercial was lame. Why would you find a game with broken physics appealing?

    I like GTA 3 because when you shoot someone in the head they drop to the ground like a stone. It’s like the lights got turned out, because when when you sever the spinal cord or pop a living thing in the head they DO drop like a rock. It’s so sweet.

    Try it. Go shoot your fat neighbor in the skull.
