Games PR Staff Resign Themselves To At Least 72 Hours Of Everyone Talking About Red Dead
Even though it is only 11AM, PR staff at game publishing houses across the nation are very strongly considering fucking off to the pub, resigned to the fact that the arrival of the Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer will be the only thing games journalists want to discuss for the next three days, possibly longer.
“Fuck this,” explained local PR agent Kelley Estrada, carefully folding a paper plane and lobbing it across the office. Sources report that she watched with mild contempt as it spiralled lazily into a wastepaper bin filled with 17 identical others.
“What’s the fucking point,” agreed colleague Bennie Ryan, his eyes glazing over as he browsed through 87 different articles analysing the Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer, and nine different listicles highlighting the greatest moments from the original Red Dead Redemption.
The clicking continued as Ryan read through two editorials on why Red Dead Redemption 2 absolutely must come to PC, and another four thinkpieces explaining why Red Dead Redemption 2 was, alternately, a victory for feminism or an absolute missed opportunity to strike a blow for gender equality, before sighing and throwing his laptop across the room .
At the time of writing, both Estrada and Ryan were seen sinking a few beers, pausing only to laugh and then cry as a games journalist mistakenly emailed them thinking that they were doing PR for Rockstar.
