This is the dumbest Guitar Hero ad ever!

Really?
YEAH LET'S MAKE IT SOUND LIKE YOU ARE GETTING EXCLUSIVE ACCESS TO A GAME, THEN SLAM SOME GIRLS ON THERE. NOW THAT'S WHAT I CALL AN AD!

Uhm, what the heck do they mean by that? Im trying to find some kind of loophole in that sentence like advertisment normally do but man, thats not even half true.
#3 Posted by MetalGearSunny (6986 posts) -
@Jimbo_N: Yes, that is very misleading.

They are pulling any move they can by now to get this game exposed. I would actually be very pleased if this game performs poorly. Then we will have enough of these constant iterations.

And we all know that's not gonna happen. When people see "Guitar Hero" slapped on the box, they instantly buy it.

@JJWeatherman: @creamypies: I'm pretty sure he referring to "Get the Unreleased Guitar Hero: Van Halen" Which is dumb, because you get Van Halen when it comes out.

Ah ha. Why would they word it that way then? Your right, weird and misleading.

I was actually not thinking correctly. I thought it said "Get the unreleased Guitar Hero Aerosmith" for some reason. So the statement isnt AS bad as I initially thought even tho its still very misleading. 
As for the blondes holding plastic guitars..well whatever at this point.

I'd buy Guitar Hero 5 if I get one of those blondes for free.

#17 Posted by Jimbo_N (1197 posts) -

The thing is tho, I´m still buying the HELL out of Guitar Hero 5 when it comes out, regardless of advertising. 
I hope they dont suspect I buy it because of blondes with cute noses and Van Halen tho, that would be incorrect.

I'd buy three copies and get all of them!

@Dalai: @expletive: They look generic to me. Maybe because I'm not that into blondes.

  Dude, come on, it was just a joke. I am not supporting prostitution. 
 
No need to get all PC on me.

@expletive: No, I'm just saying. Of course it's a joke.

Those are actually Playboy bunnies, fellas. There's a new TV ad out where they're playing while Hugh Hefner looks on creepily, then says he 'likes variety' in what I assume is a poke at Rock Band: The Beatles.

Van Halen! HOLY CRAP! That means I HAVE to get this game, just so I could get Van Halen!

@SuperfluousMoniker: PLAYBOY BUNNIES? MAN, I DO HAVE TO BUY THIS GAME!!
