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.

Re: This is Your Black Ops Shotgun Girl

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.

Andrew EisenOkay. Why?06/30/2015 - 3:30pm
Goth_SkunkI predict there would be outrage from feminists.06/30/2015 - 3:29pm
Andrew EisenThen I imagine the reaction would be what I imagined it would be a few minutes ago.06/30/2015 - 3:28pm
Goth_SkunkFor the sake of argument, assume the tone, context, and content mirror the same scene from the 1984 film, just with a gender role reversal. For context, here's the scene: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43wE6j_0Bc806/30/2015 - 3:26pm
Andrew EisenOf course, it all depends on the scene itself, the preceding scenes and the subsequent scenes.06/30/2015 - 3:23pm
Andrew EisenI imagine the reaction ("well, that's an odd scene that maybe feels a bit out of place") would be the same along with a heavier helping of "Oh, come on! Do we REALLY need to repeat scenes from the original film? Do something new!"06/30/2015 - 3:23pm
Goth_SkunkI propose: If, out of respect to the original film, something similar happens in the all-female version (male ghost), would the reaction be the same as it was in 1984?06/30/2015 - 3:19pm
Goth_SkunkI just had a thought: Fans of the original Ghostbusters film should recall a short scene in the film where it is heavily implied that Ray Stantz has sexual intercourse with a female ghost during a montage. In fact, it's technically rape.06/30/2015 - 3:18pm
Andrew EisenYou're assumption would be correct. The costumes are indeed for the film in production and not the one that the Sony emails showed was being considered and we have since heard nothing about.06/30/2015 - 3:16pm
Goth_SkunkOn the basis on chronology, I assume the aforementioned costumes and prop designs are for the female-led team.06/30/2015 - 3:14pm
Goth_SkunkJust asking out of curiosity, because while the all-female ghostbusters film will be out within a year, there is actually a male one being considered, too: http://ow.ly/P0AR706/30/2015 - 3:13pm
Andrew Eisen(There's only one Ghostbusters movie in production right now.)06/30/2015 - 3:07pm
Andrew EisenI'd say the fact that you can't tell is a positive sign!06/30/2015 - 3:06pm
Andrew EisenDoes it matter?06/30/2015 - 3:04pm
Goth_SkunkAnd now, to get back on target, these uniform and proton pack designs, are they for the female ghostbusters? Or the male ones?06/30/2015 - 3:02pm
Goth_Skunkabout GG is to be either shouted down, mischaracterized, or mocked. But, as James so eloquently put it, I am a GP member first, and a GG supporter second.06/30/2015 - 2:59pm
Goth_Skunkan anti-GG echo chamber with the majority of its users firmly entrenched in their belief that GG has no place in the culture, period. With that firm a mindset, there's little point to registering on the site when the likely response to speaking positively06/30/2015 - 2:59pm
Goth_Skunk@Manta: No, Gamergate is not rife with bigots and misogynists. Additionally, nothing excuses the behaviour by members of games press towards people they don't like, either. There is a lack of GG presence here because this site is still considered to be06/30/2015 - 2:57pm
Goth_SkunkWell I din't really have anywhere else to post it! Lord knows GP would not have posted a story about the Breitbart article. I'm genuinely sorry that I filled up so much space in the shoutbox, but I honestly had no other relevant place to put it.06/30/2015 - 2:53pm
ZippyDSMleeBOth sides make the asumpsoin that anyone is listening to what they have to say. I tend to ignore GG as mindless spewing of discomntent with everything and the other side is about the same whine whine we do not like whine whine. Can we move on yet?06/30/2015 - 2:52pm
