In a video recently released by EA, Yankees star pitcher C.C. Sabathia and Bad Company character Sweetwater are featured in a clip titled “Friends Really Against Grenade Spam.” This is obviously a parody and response to Modern Warfare 2‘s controversial “Friends Against Grenade Spam” video.
The video itself is mildly funny, and gets the point across, but everything surrounding the video is much funnier.
The first and most obvious point is the name of the video. The title, “Friends Really Against Grenade Spam,” is really what Infinity Ward should have chosen for their video. We all know what the acronym for theirs spelled out, and frankly it was an idiotic and immature decision on their part.
Secondly, and my favorite part, is that the video features Yankees pitcher C.C. Sabathia. As you may know, the Modern Warfare 2 video starred Phillies pitcher Cole Hammels. As you also may know, the Yankees beat the Phillies in the World Series, four games to two. A nice touch by the guys over at EA.
Lastly, a small thing, but the video on Youtube is actually a real response to the Modern Warfare 2 video (which you can see on the Youtube site below the video itself).
I’ve gotta say, I love all this competition between the two games, especially since I enjoy them both.
