10 Weirdest Video Game Commercials That Are Just Plain Confusing

Xbox 360 Standoff

We begin this list of weird video game commercials with an Xbox 360 ad. Minding his own business, a man is casually walking until he passes two other men who he shares a dirty look with. None of them seem to take that well so they brandish deadly and fierce finger guns because why not.

Thus a citywide shootout commences with personal verbal sound effects you’d expect out of Kronk from Emperor’s New Groove. The ad finishes with the words “Jump In” followed by the Xbox logo.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. What does this have to do with the 360? Where did this come from? Why did these men start shooting in the first place? And why did everything suddenly turn into a G-rated Purge?

Just like the Xbox Series X’s name, it will remain a confusing mystery that may or may not be a good thing. But since we’re still talking about how amusing this commercial is several years later, something must have worked.
