Monster Hunter 3's Ironbeard McCullough shares his experience making the first commercial for Monster Hunter 3.
Monster Hunter 3 is releasing on the Nintendo Wii this coming Tuesday, April 20!
Capcom has already started advertising the game, with a commercial starring Ironbeard McCullough.
I have read the commercial was spotted during a commercial break for the Oprah program, so I think Capcom is attempting to advertise this game to a wider Wii audience.
If you haven't seen the Monster Hunter 3 television commercial, I'm including it here:
After I watched the Monster Hunter 3 commercial, I sent a message over to Capcom and just let them know I thought the commercial was good, and I also shared a commercial idea I had for the game, not even knowing if I was sending the message to the right place.
Well, I checked my inbox the next day and I had received a reply, again from Ironbeard McCullough.
This was Ironbeard's reply:
Thankee kindly fer yer comments. And I like yer idea, though I'm not sure I can handle another commercial fer a wee bit(fer that spot, they gave me this "blush" t' bring out me "cheek bones". Itches like a kelbi fur hat!). So they'll have t' stick with me and the Lagi right now.
But who knows what the future'll hold?! I guess we'll see!
Always hunt! Ahahaha!
Take care, and be sure t' say ahoy from time t' time.
I think it is great that Capcom is already advertising Monster Hunter 3, and I think it is very smart to advertise the game on programs like Oprah. I'm not sure how long Capcom plans on advertising the game, and I really hope they do another commercial perhaps after the game is released, announcing the "opening" of hunting season within the game.
Ironbeard himself wasn't sure about another commercial, but if he is in another one, perhaps they can let him do it without the blush!
Have you seen the Monster Hunter 3 commercial on television? If so, what station/program was it advertised during?
If you didn't know anything about Monster Hunter 3, and you saw the commercial, would it pique your interest in the game?
My wife and I don't have cable tv(or even an antenna hooked up), so I first saw the commercial on YouTube.
I think the commercial may have piqued my interest, because of the use of the crab fishing at the beginning. I enjoyed the television show, Deadliest Catch, when we had cable, so the commercial would have probably captured my attention with that footage.
I wonder what Oprah viewers think of the commercial if they have no idea what the game is about?
Thanks again to Ironbeard McCullough for his response!
