What do you think of these ads over on SocIm? Frankly, they creep me out. This is what I said over there:
People of color as backdrop! Gun as penis! Murder as victory! YAAAAAAAY!
Beyond these things, I’m trying to articulate why this series is disturbing to me, perhaps because it brings cartoon characters into the non-cartoon world and gives them realistic remains. Most of the characters shown are heavily anthropomorphized, which adds an extra layer to their death. The trope of “big game hunt” doesn’t really fly for me when I see a tree with a sad humanoid face with its limbs amputated. What do other people think?
I’d like to hear opinions from other people.
