excuse me what is this

EA, taking one step forward and seventy-five thousand steps back.

Lol, I sign back on and this is the first thing I see. Man, fuck you,EA.

To play devil’s advocate, Father’s Day is on Sunday.
On the other hand, “guys” does not imply fathers, specifically.
So, good job EA.

i would maybe accept that as their excuse if the title of the email was ‘father’s day sale’ or something
or if it were mentioned at all in this email
i open my email to see “Games for Guys on Sale‏”
they fucking emailed this to me

Oh yeah, they’re idiots. But there had to have been some thought process to arrive at this ad. And maybe it was:
“Hey… father’s day is coming up! We should have a sale.”
“But why limit it to fathers!  Let’s advertise to ALL MEN!”
“GENIUS!”
And they patted each other on the back and went to a Hooters to celebrate their ingenuity.

Also, “Games for Guys” is alliteration. And we all know that the highest forms of marketing have some form of alliteration.

Well, that’s irritating.
