Funny/Disturbing Ad Campaign: Your Mom Hates Dead Space 2

Check out the somewhat wrong/hilarious promotional campaign EA has launched to promote Dead Space 2, their latest goretastic first person shooter.

Warning: Video contains blood and gore. Lots of it.

Yep, they asked a bunch of old ladies to sit down in front of some footage of their game, and filmed their reactions for the world to see. This lady (below), who’s probably the youngest of the bunch, is the one who had the most positive reaction to the game. You can check out the rest right here.

At the beginning of this post, I say “somewhat wrong/hilarious” because as a parent, I would never want to see my kids playing this game, at least until they are 17, but as a gamer, I’d definitely be interested in trying it out.

So, what do you guys think of EA’s Dead Space 2 promotional campaign? Let us know in the comments section below!

  1. Hahaha this is a hilarious ad campaign.

    It reminds me of the time I went to the movies with my parents, and they, being the conservative Christian parents they are, thought it'd be a good idea to see Silent Hill.

  2. I love the catchphrase of the second video: Your mom's going to medium disapprove of Dead Space 2. I might actually play it. Very good EA.

  3. I think this is the greatest ad campaign they could have come up with.

    I still hate the game. But it will be appealing to the crowd who were already likely to buy it and those who might have been on the fence.

  4. Participant #0124 is genuinely fantastic. I would love to meet her.
    The first video is really gonna hinder a lot of under age purchasing… O well, that's not me; that game is getting pre-ordered right now
