Capcom Cancels ‘Revelations’ Bloody Pool Stunt After London Beheading

BloodyPool

Capcom UK has officially cancelled their bizarre bloody pool promotion for Resident Evil: Revelations following the grisly murder of Lee Rigby last week in the London neighborhood of Woolwich. In their promotional stunt, folks desperate for Resident Evil swag could dive into a 55,000 gallon pool filled with fake blood and body parts to get the goodies inside. I hesitate going into a normal public pool, I can’t imagine diving into one filled with a bunch of crap for a beanie.

It’s not all bad news — at least Revelations is really good.

Have a question? Feel free to ever-so-gently toss Adam an email, or follow him on Twitter and Bloody Disgusting.

    Wow, I think that sounded really cool and would be something I’d want to do regardless of goodies.

    Sounds like something Japan would do lol.

    Who doesn’t love to be covered in fake blood?
