Guitar Hero World Tour: "Heidian Slip"
Posted: Thursday November 6th, 2008 by

I was amused with the Guitar Hero World Tour commercial where Kobe Bryant, Alex Rodriguez, Tony Hawk, and Michael Phelps pimp the game "Risky Business" style. Well recently another version of the ad has hit the small screen where the four sport stars have been replaced by super model Heidi Klum. The first time I saw the ad she even shed the risky business shirt to finish the commercial in her underroos. Each time after that, the commercial has been abbreviated and she remains clothed. You can find both versions of the ad at GameTrailers. But, a 1Up article reminded me of the ads so I'll cite that as source, it's got links to both videos anyway.

Now, I'll admit, if it wasn't for Project Runway I wouldn't care about Heidi's GHWT ad. Frankly, I might have even been a bit icked out by it. But after watching Project Runway, she amuses me. So where I'm probably not appreciating the commercial for the intended reasons, I'm appreciating it none the less.

Since my target demographic is pretty much the same as the ad's, I'm guessing most of you would have preferred it if I'd drawn Heidi instead of two carbon copy marketing guys.

Just a guess.
