Video Round Up: Call of Duty Advertisements

May 12

Today’s videos feature advertisements for the wildly popular video game, Call of Duty by Activision. My boys have begged for this violent video game countless times and, so far, I’ve not allowed it. Many of their friends, from ages 7 to 12, own and play the game regularly (even though it is rated M for Mature).

The following trailers for Call of Duty are brilliantly designed ads and their violent nature clearly indicate why Call of Duty is a Mature-rated game. I can see why millions of adult gamers are enticed by this game. Unfortunately, I can also see the allure for boys – weapons, shooting, explosions, soldiers. For now, though, my kids will have to make do with Mario.

The first two videos are both for the Call of Duty Black Ops 2

Creepy, huh? Hard to believe that this is just an ad, and not a true documentary (although it sure sounds believable).

This next celebrity-studded video is a TV commercial for Call of Duty: Black Ops, titled “There’s a soldier in all of us”

The final video is for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, titled “The Vet and the n00b”
