Digital Kitchen Satirizes Gamer Marketing, Gets Gross for Cards Against Humanity

Digital Kitchen worked with Cards Against Humanity, “the party game for horrible people,” to satirize gamer marketing at the Pax East conference in Boston. The resulting 30 second video is absolutely disgusting.

Digital Kitchen and Cards Against Humanity launched a fake, caffeinated oatmeal called “PWNmeal,”which they dubbed, “The official porridge of e-sports.” The project was meant to satirize the onslaught of marketing targeting gamers are targeted with at conventions, from caffeinated gum to beef jerky (which don’t combine so well). In addition to the above video created by Digital Kitchen, Cards Against Humanity also put together an @pwnmeal Twitter account and pwnmeal.com to make the product seem legit. Gross enough just as an idea, the 30 second video takes things to the next, breakfast evacuating level. Proceed with caution.
