Porn DVD In Splatoon Box Ruins Little Girl's Christmas

In what now seems to be a sad holiday tradition, a mother in West Chester, Ohio, tried to buy her seven-year-old daughter a video game for Christmas, only for her child to discover a porn DVD when she opened the box.

Kristy Greider told WLWT that she bought Splatoon for her daughter at a Target a week before Christmas, where it was shrinkwrapped and locked in a case. Everything seemed fine on Christmas morning until she took off the shrinkwrap so her daughter could open the box — where she found a copy of Sensual Seductions 2. Her daughter was understandably confused and upset.

"I had to explain to her a little bit that Santa's elves don't make the video games," Greider told WLWT. "They actually get them from the real stores and it had to have been a mix-up that Santa didn't know about it."

Greider received a gift card for the value of the game from a Target representative, but she isn't satisfied. "I want to know how it happened and make sure that it goes up the flagpole and that Nintendo is made aware of it. [Target] said they'd pass it along and somebody would get back to me and I haven't heard anything since."

Greider, Nintendo and Target did not respond in time for publication.

    Do people not take their kid's toys for test runs anymore? That's half the fun of Christmas when you have little ones - getting away with acting like a kid yourself under the guise of "seeing if it works properly"
    I can understand her being upset but really, buyer beware surely

      Agreed. This is not the first time this has happened. Has happened with just plain old movies on disk where a porn movie can be found on an innocent copy of kids cartoons. VHS tapes too I think back in the day. Always open the case to make sure you got what you paid for. :)

      If it requires assembly I do but if it's shrinkwrapped I leave it for my kids to open. I would never expect the wrong disc in a brand new item.

        It was clearly returned and then shrink wrapped again. No way a new copy.

      If I had of known that was in the case then damn yes I would have tested it beforehand.

    Im 50-50 on this story, normally these stories are about people buying something from ebay to save a few $$ only to encounter an online troll but I dont think iv heard one of a retail giant / distribution stuffing up like this...
    Sounds like mummy just wrapped the wrong pressie... or maybe its a crazy version of Wonkas golden ticket

      Or a target employee changed the disc's and re-shrink wrapped them

    I thought this was a common scam. People buy a game and carefully slice the shrink wrapping open without breaking it. they then take the disc out and replace it with something shitty and then get a heat gun or something to reseal the fine cuts they made. Then they return it to the store and since the shrink wrapping isn't missing the workers assume (rightfully so I might add) that the game wasn't even opened so they give a refund or store credit for a new one.

    My nephew had a problem with Target (Australia) and a Christmas present. His grandmother had gotten him a PS4 game, however when it came to opening it on Christmas... no disk inside at all. Just the DLC code. He was really upset by that one.

      Was it actually a game or just DLC?

      No joke, some game add-ons are now packaged in disk style boxes!

        The retail copy of MGSV for PC contains a steam code and no disc :D

          Virtually no difference; I found out the hard way that the PC version of DOOM only has a dual layer DVD with only the first 8 GB of the (then) 55 GB game.

          Seriously, they could press a BluRay for consoles but not PCs? Not seeing the logic here.

        That was my first thought, that it was just a PSN code for the full game, so we tried to redeem it and it said it was a 1.1mb DLC. The case of the game made it sound like the complete game and required 157mb so we went with 'They forgot to give us the disk'. Which is strange, since with Target here, the games are usually sealed within the anti-theft holders.

          Despite all efforts, these sort of things still happen.

          When HD-DVDs were selling for pennies after losing the format wars, I actually picked up some on Amazon (still work, tale for another day).

          Two though had a problem. They were sealed but one had scratches on the back and the other the disk was missing.

          Even with automation, something does still go wrong so getting something sealed is only extra assurance; it is no guarantee the product has been tampered with or free of defects.

          On a side note, when I contacted Amazon about those disks, I got replacements at no charge. Pretty good considering I'm an Australian buyer. Now if only local retail where I live would just obey even the basic rules of consumer rights such as giving actual refunds without putting on a turn.

            Did you see the ACCC had put out a post Christmas advisory for the inevitable deluge of returns? Just use those three magic words, Australian Consumer Law. I don't think I'd seen quite as funny a media article regarding them in some time.

    It's called Splatoon, what the fuck were they expecting?

      Hahaha. It's my sons birthday today. I got him a copy of Splatoon. I'm at work now so I hope he's enjoying it!

    Something something tentacles Splatoon.

    I guess it's probably a good thing that the Wiiu never had DVD playback.

    Understandably upset, how can you watch Sensual Seductions2 without watching Sensual Seductions 1 first der

    Someone openning their copy of sensual seductions 2 is going to be very unhappy
