Watch Korea blow up Salt Lake City in Homefront video

I live in Salt Lake City. This is scary.

Okay, so it's actually just a grainy video of some cityscape explosions. If you've never been to the SLC, you won't care much. But I've stood where those kids are standing. I work in an office building right in the middle of those bomb blasts. If this were real, I'd be dead.

I know it's just a crappy "viral" marketing video (and oh, how I loathe when marketers and PR people create media and call it "viral" before they even release it), but for me…yeah, that's horrifying.

So, good job, I guess, Homefront. I don't care any more or less about your game, but you just happened to pick the correct town to freak me RIGHT THE HELL OUT.
