The Great Hamburger Conspiracy

So, Giant Bomb launched on Monday without adverts of any description. Many people have been asking, how do these guys plan on making money? The common answer has been that it is only a beta, advertisements will probably be implemented in the future, but I ask, what if advertisements are already on the site, just in secret?

The hamburger page has exploded into popularity like no other. A totally unprecedented occurrence. People are talking about hamburgers like they never have before. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has been craving some hamburger goodness after talking about hamburgers on Giant Bomb. Maybe this was the plan all along, and burger companies have been paying for this subtle advertisement. Maybe it was the plan right from when Jeff first talked about hamburgers in that episode of How to Build a Bomb we all remember. Or maybe I'm going insane. Either way, we must investigate further.

That makes so much sense it really does lol. The Hamburger forums have so far been on fire with activity so maybe it is some strange marketing and advertising on GiantBomb's part.

Wow...it could actually be true...

Hmm, I wonder if it's McDonald's or Burger King who have managed to convince The Bomb to hype the burger like never before... :P
