Hate needles? Skip this ad for ‘Halo: Reach’

Agencytwofifteen's "Birth of a Spartan" spot for Halo: Reach, starring the world's scrawniest Marine, is the latest video-game ad with awesome music. Too bad they ruin it by jabbing all those needles into the poor kid. There's only one thing I can't stomach watching, and that's injections. Oh, and people playing Halo. Now that those sensory experiences have been combined for me, I can't endorse this game. But at least now I know when to shut my eyes during the previews for Iron Man 2.
