PopCap Announces Celebrity Bejeweled … If You Smellllalalla What the ROCK … Is Cooking !!!


POPCAP have announced the Celebrity version of Bejeweled … prepared to be STAR STRUCK !! Check out the press release below and check out the website for more details. 

 Seattle, Ireland – April 1, 2010 — PopCap Games, maker of some of the world’s most popular video games, today announced a new celebrity edition of its flagship franchise Bejeweled®. Available only in a limited edition retail box crafted from cubic zirconia and sold only at PopCap.com, Celebrity Bejeweled replaces the traditional gem pieces with holographic likenesses of gem-named superstars from popular film, television, music and sports. Further, the special collector’s edition package includes actual genetic samples of featured celebrities, for use in home chemistry experiments, various forms of extortion and/or sale on eBay. Celebrity Bejeweled carries a suggested retail price of US$2000. (Due to live DNA samples, this product requires hand-delivery to addresses in Kentucky, Michigan and the less lenient counties of Arkansas. Further, some copies may contain trace amounts of Alec Baldwin spliced with Lady Gaga.) 

Dozens of celebrities were considered for inclusion in the new game, with the following receiving the ultimate honor of their respective careers: musicians Neil Diamond, Jewel and Crystal Gayle; renowned artist Jasper Johns; and action movie star and former big-time wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Singer Pearl Bailey and NBA Hall of Famer Earl “The Pearl” Monroe will share the honor of replacing the white gem in the game (mostly because Oprah Winfrey refused to legally change her first name to “Opal”). Lastly Amber Smith, former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model and first model of the original Wonderbra ad campaign, will thumb-wrestle TV and film actress Amber Tamblyn (of General Hospital and Joan of Arcadia fame) for the seventh and final gem spot.

Who’s your favourite from the list mentioned above.  Mine’s the ROCK !! HE ROCKS and that’s the bottom line cos Stone Cold Said So 😉

    Nice to see someone getting on the April Fools day jokes. Personally, I feel it’s been a very quiet year compared to other April Fools days.

    And yeah, my favourite is also the rock. Ever since he said in a movie that he could bench 300kg, I have been a BIG fan 😉

  • Lmfao. This looks hilarious.

    Just wondering, was this a Popcap created thing or did you guys at Capsule Computers come up with it?

    I just wish the picture was a little bigger so I could identify all the actors in there. I recognize very few of them (at that size). Is Sergent Slaughter in there? haha.

    Hehe, it’s a good thing every developer has a good sense of humor.
    And puttin The Rock there…epic!
    Although they were only jokes, i wish some games “announced” today would really be developed. Like Alan Wake Wars or Ecco 2-Wave Wars (or something like that). Kamikaze dolphin ftw!!!

    And in the end: IF YOU SMEEEELL…WHAT THE ROCK…is cooking!
