I don't know about you guys, but I'm sick of being chained to my television when I want to play Guitar Hero. The wireless controller was a nice attempt, but it still kept me stuck in my living room. I want complete and total freedom of movement when I rock out, you know? I'm sick of looking like a total fucking douchebag playing Guitar Hero in the privacy of my own home. If only there was a way that I could play Guitar Hero... IN PUBLIC! On the train, in the food court at the mall, in the office break room; If possible, I'd like to be able to look like a prick anywhere I go.
That used to be just a pipe dream, but come Summer 2008 that pipe dream will finally become a pipe reality!
And what better way to announce the coming Guitar Hero DS revolution than with what may possibly be the most instantly-dated commercial I've ever seen. Look at that guy and that girl. They are ready to ROCK! You can tell because they brought their Nintendo DS's and copies of Guitar Hero onto that rooftop, and they're totally rocking out in front of... what skyline is that? San Antonio, Texas? Yeah - they're totally rocking out in front of the San Antonio skyline. If that isn't enough to convince you that Guitar Hero DS is the premiere game of Summer 2008, then I don't what will.
If I didn't know the product was brand spankin' new I would assume that this commercial was made in 1992. The only explanation I can come up with is that Guitar Hero DS is early 90s themed and features hits by Spin Doctors and Counting Crows. Oh well - at least it works on rooftops!
