It's Sega's new mascot, they need to replace Sonic after all the crappy games.

They're laying down their sides on the .gif pronunciation. Clearly they think it's like giraffix

Mocap giraffe? The bow tie helps with neck animation.

Geoff Keysley was posting a bunch of geraff pictures to people on twitter. Seems like he was hacked but I guess not. #E3Mysteries

Because giraffes are baller.

Because E3 is fucking stupid.

Because he wants to look fancy I imagine.

you're having a giraffe.

Awwwww...I can't help but to feel bad for the giraffe.

Closing ceremony, they are going to make it angry and set it free to help clear out the stragglers.

EDIT: must be a branch it doesn't go over his mouth

Because would you rather have a giraffe wandering around E3 in the nude?

I'm having trouble answering that question.

Some questions don't need answers.

But if I had to guess, I'm going with "Chippendales Show".

That's the most depressed looking giraffe I have ever seen.

I'll have the giraffe with a side of Doritos.

God damn it.

Does the Guy's Choice have anything to do with E3? Cause I saw photos of Ben Affleck and Zach Galafinackis(?) with the giraffe in the background so it makes me think it was more for that then E3. Also, Geoff Keighley has a guy's choice entry badge on.

#79 Posted by Giganteus (197 posts) -

Has anyone mentioned yet that this isn't related to E3 and it's actually from the guys choice awards thing on Spike?

#80 Edited by MikeLemmer (615 posts) -

At first I thought it was the new GB E3 banner.

I hope it eats someone's hat on live camera.

EDIT: Dude, is its mouth wired shut? Not cool! You're gonna put it through E3 and not let it eat someone's hair in retaliation?

The truth is that during the Sony conference it'll be bought up stage and Kaz'll spank the giraffe and out comes the PS4. *The crowd goes wild.

Because it's a new generation of consoles. Which means a new generation of BATSHIT CRAZY MARKETING ! This is gonna be great !

This is horrible. The animal is probably scared shitless and it has wires around it's head. There's really no reason for the animal to even be there. That's just messed up.

My first thought too, what the hell are they doing? I imagine it's just going to be there for like an hour or something right? If they seriously have a Giraffe captive on the show floor for three days the only words that come to mind are "Stress Induced Heart Attack"

That might be the weirdest meme that Jeff has ever spawned. And it's so great.

@mikelemmer: I am super bummed out for that giraffe, but there is no way that its mouth is wired shut. Look at how it breaks up on its jawline, it's a shadow.
