Those fun-loving folks at Sony have done it again…with a remake: The Silence of the Goats.
Slaughter: Horror at Sony’s depraved promotion stunt with decapitated goat
the Daily Mail -22:45pm on 28th April 2007s
Electronics giant Sony has sparked a major row over animal cruelty and the ethics of the computer industry by using a freshly slaughtered goat to promote a violent video game.
The corpse of the decapitated animal was the centrepiece of a party to celebrate the launch of the God Of War II game for the company’s PlayStation 2 console.
….At the event, guests competed to see who could eat the most offal procured elsewhere and intended to resemble the goat’s intestines from its stomach. They also threw knives at targets and pulled live snakes from a pit with their bare hands. Topless girls added to the louche atmosphere by dipping grapes into guests’ mouths, while a male model portraying Kratos, the game’s warrior hero, handed out garlands….
We have reproduced the spread — headlined Sony’s Greek Orgy — here, but have pixellated the image to spare readers the sight of the goat’s decapitated head hanging by a thread of tissue from its corpse, with blood dripping to the floor…
I wonder if Sony’s CEO, Sir Howard Stringer, was there for goat festivities or whether has keeps his own goat in his carpetbag for travel fun? It must be a good way to relieve stress as he in a hotel when in Tokyo and spends much time in New York and London (at goat parties) to run Sony by remote control.
