Cheech And Chong Are Coming To Name Of Obligation As a result of The whole lot Should Be Consumed


Cheech and Chong, the comedy pair well-known for his or her albums and flicks from the Seventies and ‘80s, might be added to Name of Obligation as a part of the upcoming Season 3.

An iconic stoner duo, Tommy Chong and Cheech Marin don’t appear to be the sort of guys who would seize M4s and shoot folks. The 2 created movies and comedy routines targeted on hippies, free love, medicine, and counterculture concepts. However the Activision machine calls for extra and so in they go, with the writer confirming in a brand new weblog submit that the duo are heading to Call of Duty Warzone, Warzone Mobile, and Modern Warfare 3 sometime next month.

Whereas we don’t but know formally when the duo might be playable in Name of Obligation’s varied multiplayer choices, different weed-inspired cosmetics and a “Blaze It Up” occasion appear to level towards Cheech and Chong arriving on or round April 20, aka 4/20.

Right here’s how Activision, a really massive and not-at-all hippie-like company, describes the 2 and the brand new beauty pack in the lengthy blog post:

Cast within the counterculture revolution, but armed with drive and inventive energy, Tommy Chong and Cheech Marin turned cultural friction into comedic success. Going through systemic boundaries with humor and hashish, the duo exploited adversity to deliver underground voices into the mainstream. Chong’s ingenuity and Marin’s heritage primed them for fame, whereas their comedic chemistry made them icons. Their albums and movies uncovered injustice with subversive pleasure, pioneering stoner comedy and changing into symbols of irreverent reality.

I do know some will get a kick out of this, giggle about all of the weed content material, and never assume rather more about all of it, and that’s effective. However I simply maintain getting sadder and sadder as I watch all of popular culture and leisure slowly devour itself and we get nearer and nearer to a future the place the whole lot is one large gray blob owned by WarnerBros Disney Fox Common Monsanto Sony Tencent Apple Microsoft.

Positive, it’s foolish that I can watch Ariana Grande battle Goku and Michael Myers in Fortnite. However watching all artwork get chopped up and chucked into the endless maw that’s the metaverse makes me actually unhappy, man. I miss when stuff was distinct and distinctive.

Season 3 of Call of Obligation Warzone, Warzone Cellular, and Fashionable Warfare III begins April 3 on all platforms.
