I saw this banner ad on a political webpage (of all strange places) that I really wanted to post about here. I, unfortunately didn’t get good shots of the banner ad and was very sad. I mentioned this to my wonderful husband and he was able to find me something even better! Apparently they used the same images from the banner ad for a commercial! Here it is:
When I first saw the banner ad, I had no idea what I was looking at an ad for until it got to the end. Obviously, it’s an ad for Dungeons and Dragons Online, a massively multiplayer game based on the classic pen and paper RPG.
This ad is so awesome I can’t even explain it. The cuteness paired with the horrible beholder was perfect. It totally got me to want to play DDO, which is quite a feat since I’ve played DDO before and thought it was a good game, but I wasn’t impressed enough to stick around. Of course, it’s had a huge make-over since then, so it’s probably totally different and I should try it again. But this ad’s awesomeness was too great not to share, so here it is. Hopefully this ad will be in more places in the future!
Oh, and I think that the DDO people should totally make t-shirts of this. Wouldn’t a “broccoli or the beholder?” t-shirt be great? I’d buy one.
