Bad Xbox 360 Christmas Prank Goes Even More Bad
If you are a big fan of the internet, then you might have seen the video above all over the place this past weekend. If you haven’t, then please do yourself a favor and take a moment to watch the video above before reading on. It’s cool, I’ll wait.
How can someone who calls themselves a parent do something like this to their child? All this poor kid wanted was an Xbox 360 for Christmas, even though he knew good and well that his family couldn’t afford it. That’s the thing about Christmas, you always try your best to give your children, family, or loved ones what they really want. But if you can’t afford it, don’t get an empty box of the item, wrap it up real nice, and wait for them to open it for your own amusement to see their face light up and then become shattered.
After viewing the video, all I could think of was Jack Thompson’s stupid crusade against video games. What is more traumatic to someone, playing a video game that isn’t real, or going through something like this that basically scars you for life? This poor kid’s Christmases are basically ruined forever. Why hasn’t JT flooded my inbox with his dumb press releases concerning this very video? I really do think something like this is more damaging to a child’s mind than playing video games.
In closing, I’d love to see what JT thinks about this video. I hear he’s kind of like Beetlejuice. If you say his name three times, he’ll comment on your article. So hear goes: Jack Thompson, Jack Thompson, Jack Thompson.
