Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Ol’ Gil is back in Springfield! Always a pleasure to see our favorite salesman roaming the streets of Springfield! (hey EA, when the heck are you going to make Gil a playable character?!)
Anyway, Gil is back and, as always, he’s got another “deal” for us. What’s the latest gimmick he’s peddling? A Pet Fair of course!
So let’s break down the details of this latest offer and determine if this deal is worth the donuts or if you should take a hard pass…
So when you first get into Springfield you’ll see Gil waving his arms around…just begging you to tap on him…
If you tap on him you’ll see…
Gil: Come on down to the Springfield Pet Fair! We’ve got cats, we’ve got dogs, we’ve got exotic Bolivian albino sugar gliders! Are they legal to own? Buy one and find out!
At which point you’ll see his latest gimmick…
If you refuse…
Gil: Aww, can’t you at least take a cockatoo or two? They won’t shut up and this one’s way too honest in his criticisms.
If you accept…
Gil: Awm you made Gil’s day! These baby tigers needed a good home. And now you can be their scratching post!
Now real quick…if you refuse the offer will go back to the store. It will be there…
This Deal Ends July 20th (when the event ends)
And now for the part, you’ve all been waiting for…the Should I Buy…
