Oh if you could only *nom nom nom* pixels! Today I will introduce you to a special friend who got me through many relationships turned sour, with only a few extra pounds to pay. Yes, the one and only Ben & Jerry’s ice cream found its way into our virtual lives. The company, like many others in Second Life®, has built an island to promote its product in a new way of advertising. However, this island is not just a glorified billboard, but FUN! When you land, you are standing directly in front of the Ben & Jerry’s Factory that takes you on a colorful and entertaining tour through the ice cream making process and the company’s history. To the left of your landing point, you will see giant signs explaining a game, where you hunt for as many muffins as you can find in two minutes time. It’s part of the whole running theme on the island which is not only ice cream, but conservation. The game is called Methaniac (no meth-heads, it has nothing to do with you, go play chemist on another island) and teaches players about recycling waste into electricity by way processing methane gas… or something like that. You will see a few solar panels and wind farm structures to further all that darn good learnin’! But incase you don’t want a lesson in science and just came for the fun, you might also be interested to know that every day, the person who found the most muffins wins 1000 LaLas! So go play, get some fun pics and pick me up some Cherry Garcia yogurt while you’re there would ya… I’m running low and I need mah fix!
