Theater Ad Starts Friday

AADL-GT: Ann Arbor District Library Game Tournaments

If you visit Quality 16 Theaters in Ann Arbor starting this Friday, and if you're not late for your show, you'll probably see our shiny new AADL-GT commercial! It features choice quotes from several of you, a single-player and clan leaderboard, and one of my favorite game remixes, The Alternate Route, mixed by ParagonX9 We will be revising the ad after the next tournament weekend, so if you have ideas on how it can be improved, let us know.

Also, MARIO KART DS. Holy smokes. It is so awesome. We are definitely going to arrange an anywhere league for this game, but there are a lot of logistics to work out. In the meantime, let's get connected and do some racing! My friend code is 274937 413917. Kip's is 068778 956511. What's yours?

Who all is in it!?!?
I'm probably not, 'cause I've never been interviewed.
But I still want to know!!!

For anyone that wants to race, my friend code is 141793348001. Look me up sometime.


Well Leinad has an Interview in it and so does Black Shark and the Durskis and now I'm Blanking on who else I saw in it. I'm only in it for a brief moment at the start I didn't see you, Tom, or Beebles.

It also features Ugo & Mario. The ads show in a 15-minute rotation on all screens. Our ad will come up after the Sierra Mist parking ticket commercial and the Over the Hedge trailer.


The stupid ad didn't load and then crashed my browser... >:-O

Eli - how long will the commercial be running at Q16?

At least through the grand championships. We don't have any January Events, so we won't be running them then, but we'll probably start them up again in preparation for our midwinter break events.

If quicktime crashes your browser, you can try this one. It's a lot larger file and no better quality, but it's not quicktime.


Wow. I totally missed the link the first time, but that ad is hot like fire.

You probably won't see the Ad thursday night, I don't think it starts until Friday morning. I fixed the link though, it's not a popup anymore. Try it again.


That was an amazing ad.. Good job Eli & Co.!


What’s with Eli yelling "Master Shell right at the last minute oh but the Trouble Monkeys' lead is too much" right at the end of the Ad? What’s with the fact that there are no game screens in the whole Ad? Oh wait the copyright laws won't let us use their games to promote the tournaments will they?

well harry potter 4 was awsome. there were 4 theaters open 3 of them were full and the one i went to had 15 seats open. i was the only kid there my age except my friend. but i spoiled the story for everyone at my school should i do it for u guys.....y not
they skip 100 pages in the 1st 5 minutes they go from the riddle house to the quiddich world cup. theres a lot more but i dont want u guys to get mad at me. the movie was well done overall though.

You've got it, duck, we had game footage in there, but we had to take it out. I'm going to try to get permission from nintendo to use game footage, but I'm not holding my breath.


Well, I finally got to see it. It took forever, but the quicktime version loaded. Nice ad. I'm looking forward to seeing it on the big screen sometime.

That non-quicktime file is huge. It's the biggest thing I've ever had my computer download.

Edit:
I wonder how many people it will draw to the tournaments? I'm thinking this will be a lighter attended tournament since it clashs with thanksgiving, but it still might have a surge from the ad.

So no one else has picked up Mario Kart DS yet?


Well I tried to but Best Buy was out of copies. So I might pick it up Wensday.

Hey, I all my friends saw me on the big screen and they said I looked stupid, what did I say that day?

Giggity Giggity Giggity, Alllllll Right!

Black Shark Clan


Something like "video games, Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros. what more can you ask for?". I thought you had one of the more intellectual lines in the ad.
