On the show, they even brought it a mortician who brings kids to a funeral home and uses that as a scare tactic to show them where gun violence leads. I think that is a little much, especially since we are talking about a video game here.
I just find it absolutely mind boggling that this is even an issue. It's a commercial about a video game that is rated MA, which is intended for adults, 17 and older. It's only a few seconds of him holding a rifle and I guess that is the "controversial" aspect of it. I just don't find it to be that big of a deal, and I don't see why they are making such a huge deal out of it.
1.) It's a video game. It's fantasy. If you can't separate the fantasy world of a video game and reality, then you my friend don't need to be a part of society.
2.) It's marketed to adults 17 and older. If a child gets their hands on the game, then that is on the parents and it's their failure for allowing it. I just don't see the problem with Kobe or any other athlete, including Chief players, endorsing a video game.
I guess it must be a slow sports day for ESPN. It's a slow day around here too, so I figured this might generate some discussion while I try to get better at using this FanPost editor....Lol.
But, Chiefs fans, I would like to know, do you have a problem with the commercial? Would you have a problem with any of the Chiefs players being part of a commercial like this? Am I the only person out there that thinks this is a non-issue?
