XFX wasn't at the Consumer Electronics Show this year. Their absence might seem surprising given the recent release of the Radeon HD 7970, which XFX sells in multiple flavors. Instead of blowing its marketing budget on a penthouse suite filled with booth babes at the Venetian, it seems XFX decided to hire a video production team to create X-Rangers: Defenders of Gaming.
Okay, so maybe XFX's budget would've only bought it a roach-infested room at the Sahara. Whatever this video cost was probably money well spent, because it's just ridiculous enough to go viral, at least within the enthusiast community. The cheese is layered on pretty thick, and I have to admit to cracking a few smiles during the seven-minute video. This isn't the first time I've been incapacitated by an Eyefinity-enhanced stereo-3D attack.
The video is pretty faithful to the Power Rangers, so I've gotta give XFX some credit for the unexpected spoof, even if I feel slightly dumber after watching it. Unfortunately, the video sort of falls apart in the final minute—but not without taking a not-so-subtle shot at the GeForce crowd. We eagerly await a response from someone on the green team and offer the following inspiration.
