Follow Ashton Kutcher on Twitter, get in an EA game
BY Dennis Lesica Apr. 15th, 2009 More on:Ashton KutcherEA

I think Twitter is officially the new place for completely insane, “WTF” moments to happen on the internet. In a move that makes me scratch my head and stop playing The Chronicles of Riddick, EA has announced, via their Twitter page, that they’ll put Ashton Kutcher’s 1,000,000th follower into a future game, so long as CNN doesn’t beat him to the seven figures. Take a moment to re-read that sentence…and now join me in head scratching.

It’s a cool move, albeit completely bizarre, if EA sticks to their word, but the “winner” should have to keep following Ashton for at least 6 months. No lie, if Boom Blox Bash Party wasn’t almost out the door I would pull the internet equivalent of telling kids Santa Claus isn’t real and tripping old ladies to guarantee myself that number and be a Blox — that would be so rad. If you want to get in on this, head over to Ashton Kutcher’s Twitter page and do the dirty deed dirt cheap. And don’t forget to follow us on Twitter where we’ll give our 1,000,000th a free oven mitt. Straight gangstas.

*I couldn’t bring myself to use a pic of Ashton Kutcher in the header so you get ducks and a kitten instead.


Ooookay...is it just me, or is this the most bizarre news you have ever heard? Discuss.

That is soooo weird... O_o

Following him for 6 months is easy enough, you just don't cancel it..... I never really use my twitter page so I wouldn't even notice who I was following. :P

Is it possible to follow people, cancel the following, and then follow them again? You know... in case you're before the millionth one.

I think the idea is pretty funny, but if I was EA I would have used something more useful as a promotion. Instead of Following Ashton Kutcher (Who is this guy, again?) I would have done something to benefit my company in at least some fashion.

this game could potentially be even worse than the Konami Iraq war mass murder fps, in fact it will be.

“When we make some new announcement and if there is no positive initial reaction from the market, I try to think of it as a good sign because that can be interpreted as people reacting to something groundbreaking. ...if the employees were always minding themselves to do whatever the market is requiring at any moment, and if they were always focusing on something we can sell right now for the short term, it would be very limiting. We are trying to think outside the box.” - Satoru Iwata - This is why corporate multinationals will never truly understand, or risk doing, what Nintendo does.
