Brie Larson Stars in New Metroid Dread Ad

Arrested Development GIF
 
NOA master plan:

Step 1): Advertise new Metroid game to it’s actual core audience, male gamers, who will appreciate it’s challenging gameplay and design, and Stoic badass protagonist.

Step 2): After it’s sold a bunch get Brie Larson involved, then start playing on the feminism angle. Start claiming 50% or more sales are from women. Brie Larson starts saying things about how Metroid isn’t for white men anymore or something.

Step 3): To support said claims, they use the touch screen on the Switch to scan every players’ fingerprints. Said fingerprints will be cross referenced with Facebook and Google’s databases to find which players are male. Said players will have their digital licenses revoked and refunds will be denied. If they bought physical, a firmware patch will brick their system. This way all the sales reported will show 100% of playtime was by women.

Step 4): Give Brie Larson millions in advertising from the game’s profits. Mission accomplished. The patriarchy is no more.

We’re currently in step 2.

If it wasn’t obvious I’m just fuckin around don’t take this too seriously guys

Is this an actual ad? Maybe I am missing something. Looks just like something she posted on Instagram. I get she maybe signaling that she wants to be Samus in a movie, but I don't see Nintendo's name anywhere on this.

You know, Brie would actually be a decent Samus. As long as she kept the helmet on, and had minimal or non existent dialogue.
Thermonuclear take.
And one that I honestly agree with.

To be fair, she's a really good actress. She was great in Room.
It just seems that she can't shut the fuck up when off script.

Wait. When you say oled you spell out the letters? I've been saying it as it is phonetically spelled. Have I been doing it wrong?

Yeah, I don't get the hate.
Back before Captain Marvel released she said she wanted to see more women invited to press junkets and that she didn’t care what a 40 year old white guy thought about a movie made for kids starring a little black girl. That triggered the chuds on YouTube to begin a 24/7 hate campaign against her that got to the point where Disney had to station 24/7 studio security at her house.

Holy shit, the Larson simps are almost as cringe as the haters. There's a line between SHE'S THE UGLIEST, MOST WOKE, TALENTLESS ASSHOLE IN THE WORLD and U GUYZ NEVER SMELT COOCH B4 HAHA FUKN VIRGNIS.

Like, my dudes. Scoring chicks isn't some ritual where we all have to rhythmically denounce the patriarchy whilst spinning in circles and fanning our vibrant tail plumage. The vast majority of common women will give it up if you buy them some shit at Wendy's and then talk about how hot their best friend was when you were plowing them on the couch last night. If the majority of men are dumbasses, the corollary is that the majority of women are dumbasses, too.

I actually thought Captain Marvel was the best out of the Marvel trite I've watched.

Brie isn't too bad.

But she does look like she feeds pitbulls with her feet for a living.
 
Too bad he offed himself but Robin Williams wouldve been a better spokesperson to the masses. Could even bring his daughter along.

Celebs need to learn to stay in their lane. Doesn't matter if it's rappers, sports celebs, or movie stars like old fungus feet herself don't give a toss you share the same hobby as the rest of us.

It was like when animal crossing came out on switch and all of a sudden they all came out of the woodwork to tell the world they were playing it and they were cool gamers. reeked of "hey there fellow kids" meme. Having celebs advertise gaming has the opposite effect, find it cringy as fuck. It was just as bad in the DS era for celeb endosements.

Great ass!?!? I guess if you had no alternative.


Nah, I'd take my chances elsewhere. I know men's biker leather isn't exactly going to look great in enhancing the feminine form but good god. I respect her attempts at improving it through working out though.

I don't "hate" her or anything, I have no interest in superheroes but after seeing her IRL character during interviews she wasn't the most likable person and the other actors were clearly peeved by her. For example, instead of having fun recollections of filming the movie and character design etc, she just went on about the usual intersectional jargon of the time. It got old real quick.

I don't hate Nintendo, people have been using celebs for some time regardless of the individual's opinion of said persona. I do feel they could have chosen better however. Hell there are a ton of amateur cosplayers I would have given the chance to shine, and plenty more gamer girls who could've been offered the chance, and probably for much less lol. I say give them a chance to shine. I personally feel nearly all current actors and actresses are quite poor at the art. I prefer most film and show prior to these last few decades. Same thing for vocalists. Most people these days can't sing for shit. Its all heavily edited. Coupled with the piss-poor lyrics and I can't help but be repulsed by most modern "art".

And finally, where I live everyone I know says OLED(Oh-led). The last I heard an American spell something out that isn't some federal branch or body would be the NES or SNES. And even then there were those who just say the whole thing in one go. Most just say Super Nintendo though. Thankfully Switch hasn't had any issues, well until now apparently.

Yeah, for a sum, you'll wear pink sandals.


So if you advertise pink sandals you have always been into pink sandals?

She's always been into Nintendo and specifically Samus and Animal Crossing.

She went as Zero Suit Samus for Halloween back in 2018 before the YouTube hate campaign really kicked into gear:



Last year she launched a YouTube channel during quarantine and the second video she uploaded was her Animal Crossing island.

I would say that this should be as close as she ever gets to being in anything Metroid considering she can’t act, but I heard what nintendo decided was acceptable for Samus in Other M, so acting ability isn’t a requirement for Samus.

If you work in entertainment, everything is scripted. Ofc there are exceptions, let's believe this is the case.
 
I don't think Brie fans are going to like Metroid very much. But other than that it's a pretty nice clip that doesn't try too hard.
