Last week, Infinity Ward posted a video on its YouTube channel that aimed to promote Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 in a public service announcement manner. Making an appearance in was an in-engine version of Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels who advised players not to constantly throw random grenades.
The language of the video is mature (as in the ESRB rating for the game), but what some have found offensive about the PSA is the fake organization behind the message – Fight Against Grenade Spam, or F.A.G.S. The video was clearly created with a tongue-in-cheek attitude, but Infinity Ward has responded to concerns by taking down the video from its channel. Other YouTube users have mirrored it below for your review.
