Posted on November 27, 2007, Stephany Want to Punch Hilary Clinton in the Face? Now You Can…
Hey, who wouldn’t want to punch a presidential hopeful in the face, or any politician for that matter? No matter what your political leanings are, everyone gets mad enough to warrant the fantasy of said punching, and a mobile entertainment site called Cellufun has launched a game where you can do this called “The Mobile Ring”. This is a free mobile phone boxing game that puts Presidential candidates in the ring, and while this is not a completely new idea, as the first such game was introduced during 2004, the new game boats that it will be taking it to the next level by “weighing the chance of success of each contender based on polling numbers, and also through the results of people playing the game”, according to TechCrunch.
To give you an idea of how this works lets use Hilary and Barack for an example. With Hilary leading over Barack in the polls, knocking out other candidates would give her a higher success rate in the game. Users can also vote on other characters for inclusion in “dark-horse candidates” which will be released at a later date. Although Ron Paul and our favorite leprechaun Dennis Kucinich are not included at this time, you can vote on cable television pundits and currently elected White House officials as well.
Want to know the scariest thing about this game? When you look at the video, notice the muscles on Hilary. It was enough to make just a little bit of vomit appear in my mouth.
