Kia + Hamsters = Facebook's Worst App Ever

August 5, 2009

We understand that sometimes, bad can be good -- black velvet Elvis paintings, for example, or the songs of Mrs. Miller. However, Kia's latest foray into social media is bad in the pre-Michael Jackson sense: simply bad. Sure, the concept is charmingly bizarre, centered on using your computer's webcam to dump hamsters -- but not fish! -- into a Kia Soul. Unfortunately, the browser plugin required to play the game is enormous, load time is longer than the average three-martini lunch, and after a round or two, it crashes. Which seems like an awful tie-in for car ads. [Facebook]
