The Republican Party has had a pretty rough time since Obama’s first presidential term in 2008. Young Republicans across the nation demanded change from the party and change is here, my friends.
The GOP’s plan is to take control of the Senate through
efficient campaigning and regaining millennial support a web-based, low-budget video game. Yes, the plan is to release a video game of a talking elephant named “Giopi” that goes around jumping on high taxes to stop Majority Leader Harry Reid. Guys, it’s not even an iPhone or Android app, making me assume the GOP still uses Nokia bricks to represent the last time their policies were somewhat relevant (ZING!).
The point of the game is to collect user contact information so they can use it later in campaigns. In order to play, you must login using Facebook, an email address, or a Google account.
At the beginning, Giopi says:
“Hi, my name is Giopi! I’m one of the GOP’s best volunteers for the 2014 midterms, and I’m here to show you how we can win back the Senate! There is going to be a lot of red tape and regulations in our way, but we need to overcome them in order to succeed. At the end of each level, there is a link that will bring you to a site where you can support Republicans in real life.”
Yes, a web-only game that spams you with links between levels and most likely phone calls or emails when the elections come around. There’s no way this game DOESN’T explode with popularity.
Watch your back, libs, the GOP is coming for your Senate seats!
