Nothing brings sons and drunk moms together like ‘Call of Duty’
Now that E3 is finally over with, time to go on with business as usual. Like hearing some FPS playing kid having an argument with his mom. A drunk mom no less.
It’s amazing how much pathos is contained within the clip above. We discover early on that this poor kid wants only to play his damn video game, not only to forget about his intoxicated parental unit, but because it’s spring break. To quote the boy: “What do you do on spring vacation? You f*cking relax!”
But it is eventually revealed that he has no actual friends; the only thing he has in his lonesome, tortured existence are his CoD squad mates (whom he’s letting down, since he’s being sidetracked). At the same time, his extreme immature sounding mother is craving for any kind of companionship, but is immediately blown off by her own flesh and blood.
Then, realizing how hurtful his words are, he follows up with “Can I have a f*cking hug?” Good luck finding drama this riveting on the big screen or any of the major networks/cable television.
