Yahoo Adds Thumb Wrestling to Suite of Canadian Distractions

thumb_wrestler.jpg

We do hate pushing an old joke but in this case we can't help it (just look at this and this). What is going on up there? Is it really nonstop games and big hair?

Anyway, Yahoo just released a thumb-wrestling game for its Canada Mail offering. It's actually more fun than it deserves to be. We spent the greater part of the morning creating thumb wrestlers and destroying each other. Very clever way to ensare us in the whole "E-mail choice for champions" thing which we pointedly burned here because of its staggering potential to be lame.

Check out more images from the campaign. We dig the casual playfulness of the images; the campaign is appropriation-friendly and we like that. - Contributed by Angela Natividad

Were you able to create the thumb wrestlers on-line and get them to fight? I couldn't find out how to do this.

Yahoo Adds Thumb Wrestling to Suite of Canadian Distractions

The review I found to be a bit misleading. I tried creating my own thumb and thought I could fight another Thumb character online. That's not the case. You actually have to print out a Thumb character for yourself and for your opponent and physically battle it out.

You can't actually fight online. You can just watch the fight.

However, there is a sparring mat that you can print out along with your customized thumb wrestlers and as Liz mentioned fight it out in the real world.

It's really entertaining. I forwarded the site to my list of friends on messenger. We had a lot of fun. I can't believe Yahoo! is coming out with stuff like this.
