Imagine the money they must pi** away on marketing for these games.
The games must sell themselves now.

they've gotta do something with the money, why not. made me smile. the advertising budget for this game is probably 100 million.

Use it to make other games? This game will sell twelvety trillion hundred and four without anymore marketing whatsoever. They could start investing in some new developers to make new games decent rather than just let some folk make below par bond games or send other games out to die.
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

They should just make explosive action/comedies instead of games.

I don't think that is Jack Black, looks awfully like him though :?
