Old School Commercials January 29, 2009

I chanced across these magic commercials this morning. Apperently there was some controversy with making this bumper. The South Park creators didn’t want to do it, but were forced by the network.

The following ad  appeared along side the bumper (I think). What a lame ad. I guess it is tough to communicate a game to people who have never played or experienced Magic before.

I remember that bump well. At the time, a South Park fan site claimed to get an e-mail from Trey Parker or Matt Stone bitching about how they didn’t want to make the ad, and claimed that Kenny said, “That sounds fucking gay” at the end there.

I can understand that they might not want to make the ad, but honestly everyone I know who plays magic loves south park. If they would have embraced the game more they could have created a stronger tie to that audience. And we all know how passionate MTG fans are about our game.
