With Any Luck, Call of Duty Just Made Tea-Bagging Uncool

Nothing against tea-bagging in first-person shooters other than it being played out, stupid-looking and annoying. But I guess it's also super-hilarious, hence this immortal awards show moment a couple of years ago. Uproarious!

Now. Despite the good people at Microsoft's Halo development team trying to re-dub "tea-bagging" as "victory-crouching", the former is still a thing. I mean, how else can you convey that you've just killed your online opponent other than by spamming the crouch button while standing over your opponent's corpse's face?

The glory of tea-bagging is celebrated in this brand-new online ad that promotes next month's Call of Duty: Ghosts:

The clip is actually part of a clever longer multi-video campaign that shows how freaky people sound when they talk about playing Call of Duty in public.

Tea-bagging may be tiresome, but I do love the idea of people talking more in public about games that they play. Even if the CoD ad team is having some fun with that, I'm all for it. I'm all for gaming being something that is socially acceptable to discuss at dinner parties (and during dentists visits). There's nothing to be shy about! Well, not much. Just the tea-bagging. And some other stuff.

    Tea bagging is not now, nor has it ever been a problem. People who care are sore losers.

      So long as tea-bagging keeps turning ultra-competitive idiots into fuming, spitting, idiots in a murderous rage I'll keep doing it to them.

      I have som really grat SS of me being tea bagged. It's a big laugh.

      You're not really talking about Call of Duty anymore, are you?

    Jimmy's tea-bagging in GTA V was pretty cool I thought.

    You could never tea-bag in CoD anyway with the death cam. Only battlefield had the true tea bagging experience... Making you watch it, unable to spawn....having to sit there for what seemed like minutes....watching your cold dead corpse be defiled by an army guy crouching...over and over and over again.

      CoD 3 had the best tea-bagging, was like the crouch was more of a deep squat

    As much as i dont like CoD, those ads where great xD

      I know right - between this and those 'replacer' ads for Black Ops they have some great marketing

    Should have a bite balls off animation/perk lol

    Are the specs out for COD: Ghosts yet? Might get it if I can run it properly

      If you could run the original modern warfare you should have no problem, COD hasn't really done much more then release skin packs since then...

    Tea-baggers are great! Easiest snipe you will ever get. They just stand in the same place for you!
    Suckers.

    And they think it annoys people! It in fact only annoys the 12 year olds (ironically, the age of the tea-baggers also). The older amongst us are scanning the battlefield for the easiest snipe prey available.
