Mass We Pray Trailer Actually A Dante's Inferno Ad

Dante's Inferno

Earlier this week, I turned your attention to a trailer for a supposed Wii game called Mass We Pray. In it, players use a cross-shaped Wiimote to perform the Catholic Mass. Well, I was tricked. Fooled. Bamboozled, even.

While I knew the game wasn't real, and said as much about the trailer, I didn't know at the time that it was actually a viral ad for Dante's Inferno. I figured it was some clever web comedians making with the ha-ha jokes. Had I just clicked on the pre-order link on the fake website, all would have been revealed.

I'm joining our nation's Nannies in being angry about this game. While they're mad about the "Bad Nanny" achievement, I'm angry at Dante's Inferno's advertising. I hate being tricked, especially when it means I devote valuable, valuable web space to promoting a game and don't even know I'm doing it.

Wait a minute... I'm still posting about Dante's Inferno right now! Must. End. Post. About. Dante's Inferno....

(Dante's Inferno is out for the PS3, PSP, PC and 360 in February...I'm still doing it!)
