Rockstar Will Put Your Mustache in Red Dead Redemption

Rockstar Will Put Your Mustache in Red Dead Redemption

Rockstar is going to be doing its part to support Movember, a month-long celebration of the mustache that highlights men's health issues.

It's fair to say that some of the best mustaches of all time came out of the Wild West. Rockstar Games seems to believe this, anyway, and will be sponsoring the Australian-born charity Movember in the U.S. next month to find the best mustache for its game Red Dead Redemption. Movember is named for the Australian slang term "Mo" for mustache. The idea behind it is to get as many men as possible to grow a mustache during the month of November, using the mustache as a symbol for men's health issues, to raise funds for prostate and testicular cancer: The masculine equivalent of the pink ribbon.

If you register with Rockstar Games at their site and on the Movember website, you could get the opportunity to appear in Red Dead Redemption, Rockstar's Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 sequel to the PlayStation 2 western Red Dead Revolver. Rockstar will be choosing the man with the best mustache and will put his likeness into Redemption, at the same time supporting a good cause.

When I first read about Movember, it sounded a little silly to associate the mustache with a charity. However, I must admit that the theme of Movember is actually a good idea, because it takes the fun of a mustache contest - in which almost every man has probably been involved at one time or another - and attaches a good cause to it. Rockstar makes it even better by giving an opportunity to appear with a mean handlebar or fu manchu in a videogame. There is really no reason not to sign up.

Red Dead Redemption is scheduled for release sometime in 2010. Visit the game's official site here.

Wait... You guys haven't heard of "No Shave November" before?

Totally doing this. Hell I can grow a full beard in 3 days, just think about what I can do with a month. :D

Dammit, mustaches, being the only type of facial hair I can't grow well. Oh well.

This guy wins.

Curse my bad teenage soul patch.

Seriously though, this is how Red Dead gets catapulted back into the headlines? Kinda dissapointed, Rockstar. Moar trailers!

Dammit, I can get a bitchin' beard going but hardly any 'tash at all.

Finally, an excuse to grow a beard.

*rubs his chin*

..........soon...............soon.....

That's what I was thinking.
I had about zero interest in this game and I don't think any amount of facial hair can change that.
Some interesting gameplay might.

Our own sound guy, and Pony Jam visionary, Nick is growing a mighty Mustache of his own to fight cancer.

If you've got some extra cash and hate cancer, help him out! :)

Can't wait for this game; Western games are few and far between but are ALWAYS great and this is a sequel to the best western game of them all.

Mustaches, bah, they tickle my lips and are annoying. But if it was beards then I could do that. Back when I was a scrub in college I had a 10" beard. still have some pictures of it, was pretty sweet.

Curse my silky smooth teenage face! I wouldn't be able to grow a mustache even if I tried.

I may give this a shot.

I can't grow a beard to save my live, but a moustache?

Mine grows back like every 3 days, this should be fun :D
