am I right in assuming that this video was a marketing departments answer to one of EA's image problems?

Nothing says cool like putting on your sunglasses walking into a building.  Huh?

Cringeworthy on the one hand. On the other it probably is great fun to intern at EA, and games companies often have nice events and stuff to keep morale high during crunch. Crunch which, of course, shouldn't happen if your managers are good Wink

In between the shots of playing video games and shooting pool you catch brief glimpses of the cubicle farm that makes up the actual work environment  (shudder).

Of course it all seems exciting when you're 18 and would otherwise be working at a crappy ad agency (or a gas station) but I hate to break it to these people: eventually you will be 30!  Somewhere around that age you discover that shooting Nerf darts to cut the tension of another 14 hour shift doesn't quite satisfy like it used to.

I've seen better cinematography in high school film studies classes. It seems EA's management is competent at neither videography, wordplay, nor employee retainment.

What's with your blog and all that annoying hovering floating word balloon "Snap Shots" shit? I feel like I have to move my mouse carefully through it or I get something jabbed in my eye that sticks there for 30 seconds on Opera (obscuring my view of the video).

It's like Irritating Stick, and I don't want to have to worry about moving my mouse through a ten pixel gap so I don't accidentally hover over a hyperlink.

I wonder if management gets upset at the employees for not making their Nerf Frag quotas.
