Today Microsoft dropped some juicy news about the Xbox Game Pass, but there is more, in the form of a funny new ad.

The commercial brings back the drive-through owner with whom we’re already familiar, and this time around he talks about… dumplings.

The comparison of the day is that asking only for one game is like going to a buffet and having only one dumpling. That’s certainly an interesting one, no doubt about that.

You can check out the video below, and see if it persuades you to buy into Microsoft’s subscription offer, that grants you about a hundred games (on a rotation) for $9.99 a month. Starting with Sea of Thieves subscribers will also be able to enjoy new Microsoft games on release day, which is pretty sweet for the price.

If you want to read more, you can check out some comments about the service by Xbox division head Phil Spencer, and enjoy the previous commercial of this series.
