MS mounts massive Xbox kebab wrap ad push

Leaves nasty taste in the mouth

Next time you have a kebab - make sure you check the wrapper.

Today's offering from the kebab shop downstairs (small doner, extra chilli sauce and lashings of pickled chillies) came wrapped in paper advertising a certain games console.

It read: "Dead or Alive 3. It can be hard to adjust to reality. Xbox. Play more. Play Dead or Alive 3."

It also said: "Dispose of after use."

We assume that means the paper wrapper - not the game or console. ®
