I'd say it's more like using Shield Monado against the disease, but that isn't as iconic to the Smash series

i wanst gonna get vaccinated but now i think iwill
You joke but you just know theres a large group of dipshits out there who needed it framing this way in order to convince them
What's sadder? The person who made this analogy or the person who needed this analogy made too them?
The saddest thing is making fun of some low level city employee for trying to make a playful tweet that encourages people to get vaccinated
/uj tbh this post is pretty harmless, maybe not the funniest but it has good intentions. it's not like they're comparing some video games to a tragic event (no, getting a vaccination is not a tragic event despite what some facebook moms would want you to believe).
people comparing tragedies to fictional media definitely happens, but this isn't one of them.
This is more like a Fellow Kids moment but yeah, could definitely be worse. Just don't stare at the profile picture for too long.
Hey gamers! Did you know taking a shower feels like BLASTOISE using HYDRO PUMP?? It'll K.O. that B.O.! Take a shower plz
wait, is the somerville logo...gET OUT OF MY HEAD GET OUT OF MY HEAD GET OUT OF MY HEAD
Fuck you. I want to be free
/uj honestly, in any other situation i would cringe to death seeing this, but hey, if it can make a few people more motivated to get vaccinated, i don't care, use all the shitty analogies you want
Eh, this is harmless. Just awkward fellow kids stuff.
Yeah, it’s definitely not hurting anyone or anything like that. Just kinda funny
/uj Get vaccinated
/rj Nice try, bill gates
Imagine getting indignant at a cheeky joke like this.
/uj, just to be clear, I’m not like angry at them for posting this or anything. I just thought it was a funny failed attempt to relate to gamers, I’m not saying it’s malicious or anything
Wtf I wanna move to Somerville now
don’t i’m not having fun
/uj, just to be clear, I’m not like angry at them for posting this or anything like some of the comments seem think. I just thought it was a funny failed attempt to relate to gamers, I’m not saying it’s malicious or anything
Y'know, hot take: I'm fine with cringy marketing like this if it actually motivates some people to get the vaccine or educates them in a way they understand
That’s totally fair, but it’s also probably worth noting that their analogy probably does more to confuse kids about what vaccines are than anything. It kind of implies that it gets rid of COVID like a cure as opposed to protecting you from COVID which is more accurate to how vaccines work. It’s obviously still pretty harmless, I just thought it was funny
THE VACCINE TRAINS THE CREWMATES IN YOUR BODY HOW TO GET RID OF THE IMPOSTERS!!!!!!!!1!111Q1111!!! IT SLIKE AMGGOGNSDU!!!! SUS!!!! IMPOSTER!!!! EMERGENCY MEETING!!!!! TASKS!!!!!!!! ELECTRICAL!!!!!!!!!!
This is how we get g*mers to do the right thing
You could say Covid is the Dark Souls of diseases.
I can't get mad at this. Any effort that gets even one more person to get vaccinated is worth it. Yeah it sounds dumb, but if it works it's worth it.
Instructions unclear, assaulted sick child
Then I have the power of a Video Game?!
Not even that bad. Mildly amusing at worst.
lol, my brother lives in Somerville AND got his first jab yesterday.
he's not a gamer though, so this is just a coincidence.
rj/ bimdeo gaem
uj/ i want bowser to sit on me
Oh what? You got sick and died? Lmao! Get good noob!! You wouldn’t even survive the Black Plague or Spanish flu snowflake!
Biden game? Ok this is going too far 😡😡😡
Inject the Falcon Pawnch straight into my VEEEEEIIIINS!
I mean, are they wrong, gamers??? 😎
hey as long as people get vaccinated i dont care
Think of the vaccine like Daigo parrying all 15 hits in Justin’s Chun-Li super.
Covid is just gonna not walk into it or shield. We need a vaccine with better frame data
SMH my head. An SJW message in a total hidden gem.
So if Joel is COVID-19 then Abby's weight training program is the vaccine.
Being a smash player is a painful existence at times
I had to squint to read this tweet
"Well, this changed my mind."
/uj This pretty harmless it’s just spreading a good message not saying anything like “Nazis are wolfenstan reference” or “Pac-Man can help world hunger” just explaining a nice good message
Falcon punch is a horrible move with terrible start lag and end lag
Stylin on COVID
Do you guys remember The Witcher 3?
