Earlier this year, Ubisoft threw a special event in Paris to show off its new games. These included Rayman Raving Rabbids 2, the sequel to one of the Wii's more successful launch titles. The Ubidays press conference climaxed with some real live rabbits being thrust onto the stage to mark the game's announcement. Actually thrust, as in you could see human hands pushing the rabbits back if they attempted to crawl off the stage.
One bold bunny did venture downstage towards the audience where it proceeded to pop out a series of pellets. Yves Guillemot was still rattling away in the background but all attention was now focused on the rabbit and his home-made Maltesers. It was like watching a best man trying to do a speech while the bride does a wee on the wedding cake.
This was undoubtedly the highlight of Ubidays. (For some of us, anyway. There was that time I came out of a cubicle in the ladies' and realised I'd just urinated in tandem with Jade Raymond, but Tom was more excited about that than anyone. Yes, she does wash her hands.) It was also, unfortunately, funnier and more entertaining than anything in Rayman Raving Rabbids 2.
