Crops and Robbers

As someone who has moderated a panel about chores, routine, boredom, daily life, and the mundane in virtual worlds featuring Ian Bogost, Tom Boellstorff, and Jonathan Alexander, I have to express my amusement about this video, even if the gag is pretty self-evident.

There is a send-up of the Facebook game Mafia Wars as well. (I write about several of these games in the forthcoming Facebook and Philosophy collection, along with Virtualpolitik friends (and Facebook friends) Trebor Scholz, Matthew Fraser, and Ian Bogost.

Thanks to Ava Arndt for the links!
