Social gaming phenomenon/scourge Farmville is about to invade your personal space every time you walk into a 7-Eleven store, with publishers Zynga plastering 7000 stores with Farmville junk.

Just like every trip into Facebook is interrupted by pointless crop growth updates, soon innocent pit-stops for chewing gum and Coke will be interrupted by a promotion for the game, where players can buy branded items from the store and receive in-game items in return.

You can see two of those items here: a Farmville Slurpee and a tub of Farmville ice cream, with the terrifying slogan "SCOOP, EARN, PLAY" sounding a little too much like "ARBEIT MACHT FREI" for comfort.

The promo kicks off on June 1, and runs for six weeks.

So, like real Farmville, you'll never be able to finish the stuff and it tricks you into sharing with your friends until everyone has either gotten a headache and / or talks about how awesome such a clearly mediocre product is.

And don't forget to buy some everyday before and after work, or you'll never be awarded the special Diabetes Bracelet to show off to your friends.
