View Full Version : Mod The Sims, now Celebrity Endorsed!


MTS2Staff
1st Apr 2012, 5:57 AM
We at MTS have long been considering the merits of celebrity endorsement as they relate to sites like this one. There are benefits and disadvantages to be considered, but with EA's recent release of the Katy Perry special edition Showtime expansion pack, it has become clear that the time is ripe.

As you can no doubt imagine, it is incredibly challenging to find a suitable celebrity for a site as big and broad-ranging as this one. We considered popular culture icons like Justin Bieber and Rebecca Black, whose cutting-edge creativity and originality are what our creators strive for. We also considered more classic television stars like Dirk Benedict or Daniel J. Travanti, whose long lived careers could represent the site's timelessness and longevity. We even considered sporting professionals like Steven Bradbury, to celebrate our premier position as leaders of the modding community pack. But after much discussion, it became quite clear to the staff that there is only one person who could truly represent the full and complete amazingness that is this site.

We had to seek celebrity endorsement from the one and only Chuck Norris.

http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/35060_120401010609CHUCK.jpg

Chuck is a big fan of video games, even though he always wins them. Sometimes he wins them even before they've finished loading, because he's just that good. He has won at all the Sims games, without even using testing cheats. He got to the finish screens and everything.

As our celebrity representative, Chuck Norris will have a significant role to play in the long term plans for MTS. If you keep an eye out, you may even spot a few of the improvements which have already been made to the site at his behest! These are only the first of many changes, of course. Eventually, we expect Chuck's amazing personality to become just as important to MTS as the Sims games themselves are!

To celebrate this very exciting development, our Featured Creators and Staff have been preparing a selection of Chuck Norris themed content to be released periodically throughout the day. You can see these amazing creative works as they are released here:
http://modthesims.info/browse.php?tag=Chuck+Norris&gs=0

As you can imagine, we're all very excited about this, and we hope you'll enjoy our new celebrity tie-ins. And seriously, Chuck Norris!

Chuck!

Norris!

Let us know what you think! Share in our excitement with us! Celebrate the awesomeness that is Chuck!

Chuck Norris does not walk to ice cream van to buy ice cream - they home deliver.

Wait, do Chucks eat ice cream, or do they just kick it?

I imagine he would eat the ice cream, then round house kick the cone. But that's just speculation. We'll have to ask him next time we have an official Norris/Staff meeting.

I'd honestly think so. This does not seem believable. Just like the paris hilton pregnancy rumor. <--- that one had me like "No F&&%&^&* way is that even possible." lol

Although lbr though, the image of Chuck Norris round house kicking a unicorn is priceless and very well done.

Paris Hilton pregnancy rumor?? I missed that one! April Fool's trick? What is this..ohhhh, that's the day I find a fake (at least I hope it's always been fake) spider in my oatmeal in the morning! It's believable. I mean- seriously. Do you really think we'd go through all the trouble we've gone through (and believe me, there's been some tense moments and almost-roundhouse-kicks this last month) just to play a trick? Besides- Chuck spoke. When he speaks we listen. How do you think that unicorn showed up in game so that screenshot could be taken? Chuck told it to. :)

The Sims is all about celebrity tie-ins and endorsements now. Celebrities and corporate partnerships as far as the eye can see! So it only makes sense that Sims websites have them too. Wherever else you might go, though, they won't have as good of a celebrity! Chuck Norris is awesome so stick with the best! ;)

Fun fact: he paid with an icy glare that powers the truck's cooling system to the current day. The vendor accidently gave Chuck Norris lemon instead of vanilla. Since it was an honest mistake, Chuck Norris didn't roundhouse kick him. Instead Chuck Norris punched him 250 years back to the past. That move is now known as the 18th century move.

Personally, growing up with a mother who loved the crap out of his show, I honestly just don't get the hype about this man. I don't see the humor or why these Chuck Norris jokes are so popular. meh to each its own tho. Mind you, I know its April 1st, but I'm just saying what I think about the Chuck Norris (memes are they?) lol

BUT the really good joke behind this is I kept coming back to edit my post thinking I typed August when it indeed says April in my edit :rofl:

Yes, thank you.


Yes Bruce Lee was the greatest martial-arts master of them all until this very day he is still said to be the best. Infact in Bruce Lee movie "Enter The Dragon" Chuck Norris was just starting his career he was in that movie also, he was in a challenge fight with Bruce Lee in that movie and Bruce Lee Kick his butt from "HereTo Kingdom Come". Norris landed bloody down and out. Bruce Lee is the Best and still is.

NOTE: If you do not know any real history or facts about Bruce Lee and what he's contributed to the world of "Martial - Arts" and the different technical styles that he mixed in his style that was never seen or done before.
Then find out, educate yourself then you will know why until this very day he is still known in the Martial- Art community from the USA To China as the Master of all Master.

Chuck Norris doesn't check websites. He roundhouse kicks the nearest landline. Also your site hasn't nearly enough Chuck Norris for Chuck Norris to approve.

Chucks comments aren't always nice, it isn't that hard to check a website, because you're checking MTS, too ;) Knowing you, you can roundhouse kick yourself into the internet.
Zandvoort approves your stay on MTS.
