Unrelated, but more interesting, I found this on you tube. Funny.

Nice, but I reckon this one's better.


or if you have 20 mins, like funny gaming vids, check out what South Park did to World of Warcraft.


This has to be one of the best cross promotions I've ever seen. Currently World Of Warcraft has 7 million subscribers at $20 a month. You do the math. That's easily bigger than any grossing movie or music band in a year. This episode ran last week in the US

IMHO, that is the funniest episode of South Park ever. My brother is a WOW nut, so it is so much better.

Amazing cross-promotion too. Makes the scambient idea I'm staring at seem kinda small time.
