This is Your Black Ops Shotgun Girl

November 22, 2010 -

Whatever you think of the ad for Call of Duty Black Ops, it sure has captured the attention of the public, and it’s still generating press weeks after its debut. The ad cleverly captures the interactivity of videogames and further dizzies viewers with appearances from Kobe Bryant and Jimmy Kimmel.

Aside from the violence being portrayed, the other real sticking point with critics seemed to be the youthful looking girl blasting away with a shotgun, pausing only for an enraptured smile. The female who played shotgun girl? The (aptly named) actress B.K. Cannon, who has also appeared in episodes of Grey’s Anatomy, ER and House M.D.

Cannon’s Twitter feed provides us the final link, as on November 4 she wrote “If you watch this CallofDuty Black Ops trailer very carefully, you might see me...with a shotgun.” Four days later she tweeted “Enough with the actual television programming (sic)! Give me more commercial breaks! #callofdutyblackops”

Cannon’s age or birth date are not listed on her IMDB page or her Facebook profile, but the latter does state that she graduated from Mid Pacific Institute in 2008, a K-12 private school located in Hawaii.

Given that the average person graduating from high school is 17 or 18 years of age, Cannon, even if she happened to be 16 when she matriculated, should easily be old enough now (at 18, 19 or 20 years of age) to buy, and fully partake in the violence of, the (M) Mature rated game her commercial showcases.

She may very well play Black Ops too, as she’s a gamer, tweeting on November 15 that there’s “Nothing more gratifying than killing zombies with @skylerday. No instruction manual necessary #left4dead”

Since when did it become illegal/wrong for underage kids to play mature games? I thought it was only illegal to sell them to kids. People who found this commercial to be un-tasteful need to stop watching TV.

Re: This is Your Black Ops Shotgun Girl

Well, it has never been illegal to sell them to kids.  It is only illegal to sell naughty content to kids (becaues apparently boobies scar young minds for life).   The argument many have been making (esp in reference to this ad) is that the content itself is immoral and thus allowing children believe they can access it is corrupting the youth.

Here in reality we tend to call this a load of donkey's kidneys.

Really...is fun so far removed from the comprehension of the populace?


I have a dream, break the chains of copy right oppression! http://zippydsmlee.wordpress.com/2010/05/21/cigital-disobedience/


Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

Sadly, many people who are no longer having fun want to make sure others do not either.  Ever notice how many of the anti-hedonism activists had active fun lives in their youth and only started fighting 'vice' once they stopped having access to it.

Re: This is Your Black Ops Shotgun Girl

Every time I watch a show or documental about spring breakers, I can´t avoid to think that some years later they will oppose at the same things they enjoyed on their youth. The could acted like drunken idiots or whores when they were young, but no one else can.

Re: This is Your Black Ops Shotgun Girl

Something I promises myself when I was young, was that when I got older I would still care about the rights of minors and not seek to take away the very things I held dear, nor would I be one of the very people I fought when I was young.

I am happy that I kept to this, even if I keep getting asked 'why do you care, this doesn't even effect you?  you are past the age limit!'

Re: This is Your Black Ops Shotgun Girl

 Well to be fair, some people do regret things that they did their youth. If they felt what they did was foolish or wrong it is normal that they would want to stop youths from repeating their own mistakes. I know there are somethings I did years ago that i wish i didn't; They could have easily screwed me up and/or it would have probably been better for me in the long run

Re: This is Your Black Ops Shotgun Girl

They suusally don't feel it was foolish until someone else points it out ot them and makes them feel shameful for it.

Re: This is Your Black Ops Shotgun Girl

Well, learning from old mistakes and regreting stuff you did when young is better than taking the morality path and try to imposse morals on everyone else.

ZippyDSMleeeffect like confusion,ect. QTEs are a gimmick that can easily be shallow because you are looking to mess with conditioned responses and nothing messes with them more than random gameplay changes..01/24/2015 - 7:58pm
ZippyDSMleeWonderkarp: They tried to be natural with God Of Wars QTE’s, sometimes it felt random which I hate the most in QTEs. The way you interface with gameplay (press X to get X result) should never rely on randomly generated mechanics unless it’s a status01/24/2015 - 7:57pm

Neo_DrKefkaHey GamePolitics staff can you guys work out the way the ads are delivered via mobile? Sometimes any attempt to do anything on this site automatically forwards you to download "Flappy bird" on a shady site or another thing. It just hijacks my Safari01/24/2015 - 3:47pm
WonderkarpI feel like the only good QTEs were the ones in the God of War series. I dont know why though.. maybe its the visceral carnage01/24/2015 - 1:13pm
ZippyDSMleeprh99: QTEs are dumb I ever understood the need for them outside being cheap and wanting to pad mechanics with scripted events that use only a few buttons.01/24/2015 - 12:58pm
