Ready to rage? Kotaku reader and Best Week Ever writer Dan Hopper sent over a link to this commercial, created by an organization called the Energy Alliance of Greater Pittsburgh. It will make you angry.
Just listen to the way the disembodied announcer talks down to gamers, telling them they'd better do something useful with their lives, like get a job at the Energy Alliance of Greater Pittsburgh. My advice would be to instead work for an organization that respects your hobbies.
I reached out to the Energy Alliance of Greater Pittsburgh for comment, but they've not yet responded. I'll update if I hear from them.
Update: A representative from the Energy Alliance of Greater Pittsburgh gave me a call this afternoon. He said he doesn't think the ad is patronizing or offensive toward gamers, telling me the goal was to get "young people" interested in the careers the organization has open.
"I don't think we're talking down to [gamers]," he said. "We're trying to get their attention."
