Evony is a free-to-play browser-based MMO with a banner campaign that harkens back to the ubiquity of those annoying X10 webcam ads of yesteryear.

The ads, analyzed recently by Jeff Atwood, have a very particular style, and one that’s become a bit more, shall we say, male-targeted in recent months.

Now the folks at PopCap are taking the bet that you ve seen these ads, and will get the joke they’re making with a new web advert for Plants Versus Zombies.

If you’ve seen Evony before, this is very funny.  If not, you can at least appreciate the long shot laugh they’re going for.  Reminds us of that Slap Chop video we posted yesterday.
