In-game Obama ads in 9 games...spoofs ensue

Yesterday, we told you about Obama's in-game ad in the Xbox 360 version of EA's "Burnout Paradise".

Today, we have confirmation that the ads are also appearing in "Madden 09," "Nascar 09," "NHL 09" and "Skate." And, Rachel Maddow, of MSNBC's "Rachel Maddow Show" said last night that the ads are appearing in nine games total.

Of course, with those ads come some McCain-Palin spoof ads. You can view some good ones here.

If I had the time today, I'd like to photoshop my own. For now, I'll offer you a few premises. "NHL 09," + hockey mom Palin = "Hockey Moms Do it Better" and "That ain't lipstick, that's blood" (hockey joke about losing your teeth and bleeding...in case the Secret Service is looking).

Then, there's McCain. Of course, the good 'ol "I'm old" jokes float through the head, but I'd like something a little more esoteric. Perhaps you could name your "NHL 09" team "The Keating Five" (of course, that leaves out the goalie...who makes the save-ings and loans).

I guess, I'll fold to my easy-joke filter and suggest yet another "NHL 09" ad: "McCain: It's cold in here. I need a blankey."

Ah yes, that feels right.
