Kids will be kids, even those of vid game executives
Bobby Kotick — CEO of Activision, “Moneyball” actor –– stopped by the Reuters Global Media Summit on Monday to give us his take on Black Friday (Anecdotally: a success, though Saturday not so much) and to throw some cold water on rival EA’s upcoming release of “Star Wars.”
But it was what his 9-year-old daughter dressed up as for Halloween that really caught our attention. (Hint: Not Brad Pitt)
If you are betting person, you would likely throw some dough that she donned a costume involving one of Activision’s popular games. Perhaps a character from Skylanders? The game aimed at 6-to-10 year olds involving toy monsters.
Nope. Kotick let slip that she dressed up as an Angry Bird. A Rovio executive must be smiling somewhere.
