Tekken 7 marketing stoops to a new low

Jun 2, 2017

There’s a cold void in our hearts whenever we see things like this. 80’s celebrities are like null zones for self respect. Free of any allegations from “the good old days” of mainstream TV presenting, Keith “Cheggers” Chegwin and Timmy Mallet take to both the camera spotlight and the elaborate marketing stage to challenge...
