Video Game and Music Nerds Unite!

One of the first promo trailers to surface for EA Sports’ Fifa Soccer 12 features a mashup of Battles’ single “Ice Cream” from their latest LP, Gloss Drop. Interesting choice, isn’t it? I would not have ever thought to conflate goal keeping with math-rock, and I especially would not have ever imagined Steve Nash getting taken by a guy in a gorilla mask. But given that us nerds are in a perpetual state of underdogsmanship, I thought all would appreciate this trailer.
