Looking for a fun way to blow off work for a few minutes on a Friday afternoon? Then check out GSN’s new viral video game at http://www.gsn.com/games/game_lobby.php?link_id=G402
You can pretend you’re Mel Gibson driving a cute little sports car in the network for games first online viral game offering called ‘So you think you can drive, Mel.” You use the arrow keys to move his car up and down and earn points for collecting tequila bottles. But you must avoid flying stars of David and troopers on the road. It’s a sort of Frogger for the modern entertainment world.
The Gibson game is the first of several animated online games, crafted in a satirical vein on topical situations, that the network will introduce in the coming months. Users can post the game on a blog or MySpace, for instance, or share it virally.
Plus, it’s an amusing excuse to play email hooky for a few minutes.
Back to work.
