This is a Weird, Depressing Way To Unlock a New Assassin's Creed Trailer

Earlier today, we got to see just a portion of a new Assassin's Creed III trailer. Just a glimpse! Like this series on Facebook and you can see the whole thing!

Or so we thought...

I liked Assassin's Creed on Facebook and I was led to the image you see here, an image that manages to capture at least half of what's wrong about viral social-media promotion, mixed with a dash of bizarre rah-rah-America numerology. They really need 1,776,000 Facebook likes/Tweets/friend-spams and such?

The message is this: you must be an unpaid Facebook shill for Assassin's Creed before you will be allowed to see a new commercial for Assassin's Creed.

Ugh.
