Virtual Obama

Josh Marshall at talkingpointsmemo.com points out Obama's virtual advertisement in Burnout Paradise:

"Look closely. That's not a picture of an Obama billboard ad in front of a few cool cars. That's a screen capture from the Xbox 360 racing game Burnout Paradise. Advertisers can buy space on the billboards in the game. And the game publisher has confirmed to GigaOm.com that that's an official Obama ad, placed by the campaign."

Cool.  There are really no virtual worlds.
