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.

Re: This is Your Black Ops Shotgun Girl

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.

PHX CorpI'm going to do a test stream later today, if anyone is intrested07/31/2014 - 2:40pm
Andrew EisenYes, I'm such a big Nintendo dork that I read Nintendo's quarterly financial reports.07/31/2014 - 2:09pm
Andrew EisenCool tidbit - Mario Kart 8 sales account for more than half of total Wii U software sales for the last quarter even though it was only available for the last third.07/31/2014 - 2:09pm
Andrew EisenStill a pretty cool promotion. Unfortunately for me, I'm not interested in purchasing Mario Kart 8 and I already owned or didn't want any of the free games on offer.07/31/2014 - 1:43pm
Andrew EisenInteresting that EU had 10 games to choose from while North America only had four.07/31/2014 - 1:41pm
MaskedPixelanteIt certainly worked, I probably would never have bought Mario Kart 8 if it didn't come with a free copy of Wind Waker HD.07/31/2014 - 1:14pm
Andrew EisenI imagine will see similar promotions like "Buy Mario Kart 8 get a download code for one of these specific games" but almost certainly not for all of its (however you would define) biggest releases.07/31/2014 - 11:24am
MaskedPixelanteI wonder if Nintendo is going to be doing "buy one get one free" promos for all their biggest releases going forward.07/31/2014 - 10:48am

ZippyDSMleeWouldn't they be able to afford and get done in a timely manner a general gba emluator for the 3DS? It seems to me if they want to make money off sales they need to do it.07/31/2014 - 7:25am
Sora-ChanAmbassador program, that's what I was looking for. Anyway the other games that have been made no longer exclusive to the early adopters got updates in their software. It'll only be a matter of time more than likely for the GBA to get the same treatment.07/31/2014 - 5:35am
Sora-ChanI might be naming it incorrectly when I say "founder" i mean the program for earlier adopters.07/31/2014 - 5:34am
Sora-Chanthe 3DS's GBA emulator was a rush job due to the founder program. No other GBA titles have been released on the 3DS yet. If/When they do get around to it, they'll more than likely update the emulation software.07/31/2014 - 5:32am
Zenemulator...it's not just a slap job that makes "some" work..they do it for each which is why they work so well. I would rather have the quality over just a slap job.07/30/2014 - 5:48pm
ZenMatthew there is a difference between "worked" and "accurate". You play the Nintendo VC titles they play as damn close to the original as possible. The PSP would just run them as best they could, issues and all. And Masked...EACH VC title has their own07/30/2014 - 5:48pm
MaskedPixelanteOnce again, the 3DS already HAS a GBA emulator, it just can't run at the same time as the 3DS OS.07/30/2014 - 4:54pm
Matthew Wilsonyou cant street pass in ds mode ether, and if moders can make a gba emulator that runs very well on the psp as I understand it. you are telling me that Nintendo devs are not as good as moders?07/30/2014 - 4:49pm
Zenperformance. Halo 1 and 2 worked great because they actually did custom work on each of them...just like Nintendo does now lol07/30/2014 - 4:08pm
Zenexisting hardware while the GBA has to be emulated completely. Same reason the 360 couldn't run most Original Xbox games correctly, or had issues because they just did "blanket approach" for their emulation which led to game killing bugs or horrible07/30/2014 - 4:07pm
ZenSora/Matthew: It's not just Miiverse, but the whole idea of streetpass and things like that would be affected if the OS is not running. And just because a 3DS game can be downloaded and run does not mean that GBA can as easily. Those 3DS games use the07/30/2014 - 4:06pm
