Nerf advertising campaign

Post by SSCBen » Fri Jun 20, 2008 7:36 pm

I found this new video that I assume Hasbro is behind: http://www.ohgizmo.com/2008/06/20/video-friday-the-great-office-war/

The only reasons I think Hasbro's behind it is because it contains the Nerf Vulcan which hasn't been released yet and the sheer number of Nerf guns makes it seem unlikely to me to have been made by some independent group.

Sad that Hasbro doesn't see any market for adults in water guns, despite the gigantic water wars we're seeing organized on Facebook and such. Maybe they'll learn eventually.

Edit: This website seems to be the source of the video: http://www.runawaybox.com/

So it's not made by Hasbro alone, but the fact that they have the Vulcan makes me wonder if it's just some viral advertising campaign. :p

A friend of mine was telling me about the Vulcan machine gun a couple weeks ago. It looks so cool in that vid. Also that vid was hilarious haha.

The football grenade was funny too. The packing peanuts flying everywhere.
