With the Election Day just weeks away, our presidential candidates are trying to get as much exposure as they can have. And no for those of you thinking that the folks at Electronic Arts are Democrats – you’re wrong.
Above is an image of an advertisement placed by Barack Obama’s campaign in Burnout Paradise on Xbox 360. The ad directs owners of the video game to the Vote for Change website.
“Like most television, radio and print outlets, we accept advertising from credible political candidates,” says Holly Rockwood, the EA’s director of corporate communications. “These ads do not reflect the political policies of EA or the opinions of its development teams.”
Let’s just hope that the Barack Obama team was wise enough to study the demographics of Burnout Paradise’s potential owners and made sure they were old enough to vote for change.
