Sonic, Selling Out
I don’t know if you’ve seen this yet but SEGA put a gun to my childhood hedgehog hero and told him to do a Progressive Auto Insurance commercial.
Even though they used Modern Sonic, I’m glad they didn’t include the the voice. They used the ‘invincible’ and ‘1up’ tune from Sonic 3, which I thought was interesting.
It bothers me that SEGA would do this. First because I HATE THESE COMMERICALS, and that woman on there reminds me of someone I know. Why the hell would Sonic need auto insurance? If anything, Dr. Robotnik needs the insurance for every time Sonic bashed his vehicles. Unfortunately his premiums would be through the roof!
Lady: “I think he’s looking for savings.”
Me: “I think Sonic’s looking for a way out of this fucking commercial, bitch! Where’s Knuckles to punch you in the mouth?”
Bah. Nintendo needs the money much more. Why not get Mario? Hell. WARIO driving around in his purple ’57 boat, I’m sure he’d love to save some coin, that cheap, greedy bastard.
Anyways. Drive safe. There’s a lot of bad drivers out there.
Back to working on my EP!
