Anyone else seeing these E&P ads on TV? I’m not hallucinating again, am I?
Wow! No I haven’t seen. Record! Post!
Did you for real see a TV spot? What channel?
Yes, they’re real. Thought I might just be overly impaired the first time, but the second time it definitely stuck. Some UK Sky Channel - I was surfing and forgot to notice precisely where I was.
Summary: CGI animated Thorne is talking tough to the camera when his cellphone rings, He breaks character and has a mundane, slightly fey, conversation. (Kinda weak, not really funny, could be worse.) Ad ends with a pack shot - E&P, available in the App Store and for droid.
(I think that’s what happened. I was a bit stunned to pay proper attention.)
Oh yes! Please keep us posted folks! I want to see
Ok, thats kinda show how much the game has grown.
I do my part, give me a price
Saw it a few weeks back on their Facebook page. I’m guessing this is the same ad you saw?
That’s more or less it - might have been a slightly shorter version on TV.
(You can tell how well I was processing things by the difference between my description of the ad and the actual ad. Um… sorry about that.)
Okay … this is … well … I don’t know, if I should laugh or scream.
You know what? Now that I’ve watched it with my head on straight, I’ve changed my mind. I think it’s all right. Not great, by any means, but not awful.
I like it. Not everything needs to be over the top, Blizzard-short type epic…
So long as it isn’t an outright lie (like Wings of Discord, GOW), I’m happy.
Yep, we are indeed running tv spots in the UK!
Here’s one of them (casting Richard):
What do you think?
(I haven’t watched TV or TV ads in quite some time though…)
I thought Richard’s voice would be deeper.
