Status Report: Video Taken Down for Child Abuse
Wargaming had to put down one of its commercials from Youtube after it generated a massive storm over the Russian community, people started complaining that it featured child abuse:
Its clear the intention of the video was just a guy wanting to play a videogame in peace (*) but the whole atmosphere of the commercial and the way he got the kid quiet definitely wasn't the correct way! And truth to be told... his face creeps me out a bit...
Instead of locking the kid the guy could have added him to the fun, they could have platooned together. Its not that hard to teach a kid to play artillery to support you, seriously! I've failed to find the video but I've posted it on the blog before, one of my frequent livestream viewers, Soslo posted a youtube video teaching his very young kid on how to play arty and his son proceeded to one shot kill a unlucky random pleb.
(*)Personal experience...I'm only a "cat mother" but I've grown up with 2 hyperactive siblings, did plenty of babysitting and even have a athletics coaching diploma specialized in the age of 6 to 10 and its simple, you CANT take eyes away from kids not even for 5min, and if they become quiet while you are looking away doing whatever (preparing meal/activity or cleaning) it means they are doing something bad!
Oh Wargaming... you so silly. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
