F1 2013’s Kitten-Free Launch Trailer

By Craig Pearson on October 8th, 2013.


I am outraged. At the beginning of this F1 2013 launch trailer, celebrating the launch of the game about cars that sound like angry chainsaws, they had a list of quotes about the game from various media outlets. I usually don’t care if a thing I wrote is used, and I mostly write nonsense so it would be a brave marketing dept who’d mine my words for commercial purposes, but they had the perfect opportunity here to do something special with my previous coverage.

By Craig Pearson on August 19th, 2013.

Meowwwwwwwwwwwwwww!
You know that bit in expensive movies, when a burly man stands in front of a crowd and makes a speech that sounds like: “Today is the edge of tomorrow. The time is now for us to put up a fight that your children’s children’s children’s grandchildren will talk about. We will batter our foes. We will flatten them, flip them off, and then squeeze lemon juice in their eyes. Today is Pancake Day!”? Well that is probably what inspired this new trailer for F1 2013. It is the most Alan Partridge game trailer I’ve seen in quite some time. But the cars are pretty, the wheels are bouncy, and if the trailer is enough to keep John’s new kitten entertained, then I have every reason to post it.
