I have just gone xbox.com to be confronted by a video aimed at avatars to teach them about "reals" n this is no word of a lie!! How worrying micrsoft!!

What are your thoughts on the world of avatars?? lol!!

It's part of an advert that is currently showing via the Red Button on Sky Digital. You watch the advert and then press your Blue button to win a 360 plus a HDTV.

It is quite strange though...

Kind of amusing i guess, otherwise corny.

Edit: If its part of a pay TV competition then the cornyness makes sense.

That was...odd.
A bit amusing.
But mostly odd.

Here it is for people who don't want to watch it that way:

I've been waiting for one vs 100 for a long time now. Glad to see it wasn't dropped.

I actually quite liked that ad. Reminded me of the ads you got when you got the 120GB HDD.

I got an email from Microsoft about this yesterday, I felt it was rather amusing.

04-08-2009, 09:56 AM
Sorry guys I'm at work and my access to youtube is locked so I can't watch the video. Can someone tell me what it is about?

04-08-2009, 11:17 AM
That was really enjoyable, very funny.

04-08-2009, 03:23 PM
all i can say is wtf?

I got that as well on xbox.com but my sound was turned off so I just ignored it. Very strange though. Microsoft are losig their minds.

04-08-2009, 03:43 PM
Strange but entertaining. Was anyone else somehow reminded of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy?

04-08-2009, 07:58 PM
Haha, that was awesome.
Looking forward to 1 vs 100 now too.
