The latest “Corsair Gaming” video opens with two live action soldiers being blown to pieces in a battlefield, moves to a Sword of Truth moment during which their RGB keyboard is unveiled, and then drops us into the Star Trek: Original Series set with World of WarCraft weaponry. All of this, when zoomed-out, is controlled by the world's most enthusiastic, photogenic gamer playing on an unpowered monitor.
And no – I'm not sensationalizing this. Corsair has precisely forged the most gaudy product branding video known to the hardware industry. Watch at your own risk. We are not responsible for cringing or ritualistic sacrifice of keyboards:
The video showcases the company's new tribal tattoo / logo, to be found on all gaming products going forward. If you're wondering what that inked look has to do with Corsair, it's apparently supposed to be crossed swords (you know, “Corsair”), although for some reason they've opted to go with something other than cutlasses.
Regardless, enjoy your cringing.
It was a slow news morning.
