OK no disrespect if you are one of the thousands who play Farmville but...i just dont get it.
Granted i tried it ONCE. Just to see what all the commotion was about and i got bored in about 3 minutes and then played a REAL video game instead.
One of the things i dont even like about REAL farming is all the hard work. So the last thing i want to do is simulate all that hard work when i cant actually do the real work.
College kids are playing this on their Laptops in class, People are playing this on their computers at work, Others will play this on their phones while attempting to spend quality time with their family, friends, BF or GF, etc.
And for what? What benefit do you get out of it?
Its not like youre winning REAL money.
So what if there was a TV Commercial out there promoting Farmville? I wonder what it would be like?
Think of those exciting, high-octane commercials for all those fast-paced video games...and then think of Farmville.
And this could be what its like...
As you may have noticed the tail-end of this commercial has a few things like outtakes and some 'subscribe to my Youtube page' propaganda.
This is the work of a guy named Tobascus (aka Toby) who apparantly has a thing for making Ad Parodies like the Farmville one you just saw (which is by far his most popular one)
He also did one for another very-popular game Mafia Wars here too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6kNjC50BzB0
Whether you have played these gigantic wastes-of-time or even if you just heard about them (thru annoying postings on peoples' Facebook pages) im sure you still found this video as entertaining as i did.
And to think...the time it took for this guy to shoot, edit and post this video he could have had 30 acres of beets grow in his little Farmville video game. Oh Well!
