We at MTS have long been considering the merits of celebrity endorsement as they relate to sites like this one. There are benefits and disadvantages to be considered, but with EA's recent release of the Katy Perry special edition Showtime expansion pack, it has become clear that the time is ripe.
As you can no doubt imagine, it is incredibly challenging to find a suitable celebrity for a site as big and broad-ranging as this one. We considered popular culture icons like Justin Bieber and Rebecca Black, whose cutting-edge creativity and originality are what our creators strive for. We also considered more classic television stars like Dirk Benedict or Daniel J. Travanti, whose long lived careers could represent the site's timelessness and longevity. We even considered sporting professionals like Steven Bradbury, to celebrate our premier position as leaders of the modding community pack. But after much discussion, it became quite clear to the staff that there is only one person who could truly represent the full and complete amazingness that is this site.
We had to seek celebrity endorsement from the one and only Chuck Norris.
Chuck is a big fan of video games, even though he always wins them. Sometimes he wins them even before they've finished loading, because he's just that good. He has won at all the Sims games, without even using testing cheats. He got to the finish screens and everything.
As our celebrity representative, Chuck Norris will have a significant role to play in the long term plans for MTS. If you keep an eye out, you may even spot a few of the improvements which have already been made to the site at his behest! These are only the first of many changes, of course. Eventually, we expect Chuck's amazing personality to become just as important to MTS as the Sims games themselves are!
To celebrate this very exciting development, our Featured Creators and Staff have been preparing a selection of Chuck Norris themed content to be released periodically throughout the day. You can see these amazing creative works as they are released here: http://modthesims.info/browse.php?tag=Chuck+Norris&gs=0
As you can imagine, we're all very excited about this, and we hope you'll enjoy our new celebrity tie-ins. And seriously, Chuck Norris!
Let us know what you think! Share in our excitement with us! Celebrate the awesomeness that is Chuck!
Paris Hilton pregnancy rumor?? I missed that one! April Fool's trick? What is this..ohhhh, that's the day I find a fake (at least I hope it's always been fake) spider in my oatmeal in the morning! It's believable. I mean- seriously. Do you really think we'd go through all the trouble we've gone through (and believe me, there's been some tense moments and almost-roundhouse-kicks this last month) just to play a trick? Besides- Chuck spoke. When he speaks we listen. How do you think that unicorn showed up in game so that screenshot could be taken? Chuck told it to.

Suspiciously awesome? Right you are!
Welcome, Mr. Norris! You have proven to be an unending supply of inspiration for us. I just hope that we don't displease you with our meager offerings and find ourselves on the business end of your foot!
This reminds me of that facebook poll that showed up on the ads section for a very long time. "What's manlier than Dr. Pepper 10? 1. Chuck Norris 2. Nothing. Of course the results of the poll were Chuck for a landslide.
