We are fans of many virtual characters – Master Chief, Batman, Iron Man, Optimus Prime, etc but most of them are established icons of many years. And yet, not all of these characters stand out enough to be made into a ‘person’ or ‘page’ on Facebook.
Compare that with Bolo Santosi, one of the characters in Just Cause 2, a game released about two weeks ago on Xbox360, PC and PS3. Her unique accent (which most believe to be more Singaporean than any other Asian slang, had captured a lot of attention from the media, including celebrity blogger Mr Brown.
Over the weekend of Good Friday holidays, Bolo Santosi is now a Facebook ‘person/page’.
If you want to receive hilarious quips from her now and then (as heard in the game), add her to your list.
