Second?

In an announcement that will be heralded by the socially inept and ignored by the demographic typified as "having a life", General Motors' Pontiac brand has announced it's opening a virtual dealership in Second Life, an on-line virtual world.

Pontiac Spokesman Jim Hopson reckons it's a perfect position for their brand. "We're opening up the Pontiac experience to a whole new range of Second Life losers, uh, sorry that should say users. You're getting a genuine Pontiac experience."

Purchasing a Pontiac in the online game will cost actual dollars, and leave you with a vehicle that lacks substance and is worth nothing, whilst harking back to an obsolete technology. And you won't be able to get parts or repairs either.

"It's a sign that these kind of environments are the future, and it's time people started taking us seriously" says Second Life user UnicornBow Galady3

I thought people indulged in imaginary worlds like this to get away from the shit they face in real life. And now when they enter they find themselves in a Pontiac dealership. Get ready for the 'Half life suicides explode with introduction of real-life tat' headline.

I mean Second Life of course. Although some of the more interesting aspects of Half Life wouldn't half jolly up the crap virtual world of saddo jouranlists from CNN and the BBC.
