You got me EB Games. You got me real good.
Some context: earlier this week I wrote this post. EB Games had sent out a newsletter to subscribers trying to sell 'Gamer Socks'.
I'm going to be honest here: I thought that was pretty lame.
When I investigated a little further I discovered that EB Games actually let customers pre-order socks. That made things even worse.
In my defence I took it pretty easy. Here's what I wrote:
Maybe it’s a little unfair to slag this off. If someone bought me Dark Souls socks for Christmas I’d probably wear them every day.
This is just extremely difficult to parse. I started this post with the intention of taking the piss out of EB Games for selling ‘gaming socks’. Now I’m like, “where are the Dark Souls socks? When are they coming out?”
“Will they be available for pre-order?”
Fast forward to this morning. This box arrived in the mail.
I'm not going to lie. I was a little terrified. Slowly it began to dawn on me: this is socks isn't it. EB Games has sent me some socks.
I opened it. There was a message.
And this pair of socks:
They even came with a certificate of authenticity.
I've never been so conflicted in my life.
Look I'm just gonna have to throw my hands in the air here: you got me EB Games, you got me real good. Well played.
