One Snap, One Ad 

Following up on yesterday’s post about Avatar’s massive advertising campaign, more encroachment by advertising can be found in Madden 2010. This additional advertising came as part of a bug fix update to the game – nice.

Every time I see something like this, I’m reminded of a quote from the Fishful of Dollars episode of Futurama:

Fry: So you’re telling me they broadcast commercials into people’s dreams?

Leela: Of course.

Fry: That’s awful. It’s like brainwashing!

Leela: Didn’t you have ads in the 20th century?

Fry: Well, sure, but not in our dreams. Only on TV and radio. And in magazines. And movies. And at ball games, and on buses, and milk cartons, and T-shirts, and bananas, and written on the sky. But not in dreams. No, sir-ee!
