Dante's Inferno Superbowl Ad Shot Down By CBS – Replaced With A "Nicer" One

40 second read

The video above this text is the Dante’s Inferno advert that is going to be shown during the Superbowl.

If you don’t know what that means, then all you need to know is that the Superbowl has over 100 million live viewers every year, which means that this 30 second advert is setting EA back a cool 3 million US dollars.

They had another one you know, and it was way more hardcore, but CBS got all pansy and told them that they weren’t going to air it, so they replaced it with this one instead.

Good thing then, that I have posted the previous, hardcore advert after the jump. Which one is better?

You tell me.

    The second (gory) video is also more than 2 times longer than the first video, so not only do they save a few (million) dollars, but they also save about 100 million people from barfing in their mouth’s.

    First video is way more Hollywood and says what it needs to. I prefer the first one for SuperBowel Sunday :w00t:

    And yes the typo was intentional :blink:

      You shouldn’t be, because it only releases on the 9th. did you acquire it by some sort of clandestine means? If so, you ought to be drawn and quartered – to find yourself in an inferno of your own.
