Aren't you tired of all the artsy games that Silicon Valley insists on shoving in your face? Sometimes, you just want some mindless entertainment and some explosions. Thankfully, EA is breaking the nonstop onslaught of experimental, cerebral titles coming out this holiday with Need for Speed The Run and Michael Bay.

The Transformers director has created a television commercial for EA's upcoming racing title, which will air during Monday Night Football next week.

In addition to the cars and explosions typical for a Need for Spped game, The Run will also feature Sports Illustrated swimsuit models Irina Shayk and Chrissy Telgen. Yes: cars, explosions, and swimsuit models.

Finally, a game that understands what gamers want, right?

      meh... the only good thing about this game is it is using the Frostbite 2 Engine.

      I am all over this one. I just hope the PC version takes advantage of the Frostbite 2 engine fully. I played the demo on XBOX 360 and it was a lot of fun, but prefer my gaming with the best graphics possible. That isn't to say I won't be playing with a gamepad on my PC though.

      Cool trailer, but the demo is shit. Cars control like soaped up rocks.

        True of most demos, since they only give you the starter cars.

        A bit weird, but understandable.

          No, I've played quite a lot of racing game demos, and these were really crap.

        Gotta agree with you, played the demo for 5min then deleted it right away.
        I have to admit that i`m not a big fan of the NFS games though.

      well that's an awesome trailer for sure, but how is the game?

      Anything associated with Michael Bay is total crap.
