Acclaim Wants You To Name Your Baby Turok

from the going-even-further dept

Tragically, Acclaim seems to be going even further in their attempt to promote their new Turok game. Not content with having some silly individuals officially change their name to Turok for a year, they're now trying to have parents pass on such a ridiculous honor to their children - who have no say in the matter. They've launched a promotion saying they'll give $10,000 to the family of whoever has the first baby named Turok on September 1st (the day the game is launched). I wonder if anyone will do a study to see just how screwed up such children are. Speaking of which, it's now been two years since the first baby IUMAs were born. Anyone know how they're doing?
