Gamestop Ad Preys On Adolescent Fears

What were you most afraid of in High School? Getting turned down by that Cheerleader at the prom? Arriving at school naked, just before the big test you never studied for? Or, was it Mom and Dad finding all of your nudie-mags whilst looking for gift ideas? Look inside to see which terror Gamestop chose to highlight in their latest ad campaign.

According to the ad, your parents are going to find out exactly what kind of sick, perverted stuff you are into – unless you use their new Holiday wish-list website (titled, just to rub it in). It’s good to see one company really get into the holiday spirit, if ‘the spirit’ happens to be free-wheeling paranoia and abject horror.
