    I lol'd but I never pictured the campaign as racist. They showed people of different races in the video.

    Btw, if you've noticed my avatar. I was choosing if either I'd use: Rufus (George Carlin in the Bill & Ted movies), the latino metrosexual guy or the girl that kinda looks like a man (It's a trap!). I went with the trap anyway.

    EDIT: I like booby traps. OH SHI-

    I can't believe Sony managed to get away with those 'White is coming' ads in Holland [​IMG]

    Well they were eventually taken down I guess.

    In a sense. Even though actually they'd rather just have themselves among them. It's not that their are blatently racist or anything, it's just that they've been a secluded country for the longest time, they haven't had people of different races in among them in big numbers until recently.

    Which is also why there aren't very many black people in asian videogames.

    I thought I might like to specify in case anyone took this the wrong way that I'm not trying to offend anyone, i'm just parodying something similar Sony did.

    and it's in the testing forum because it's a stupid topic
