Default The weirdest PS3 commercial you will ever see

Quote:
Mmmm. Where to begin. What you are about to see (if you haven't already) is one of the weirdest PS3 trailers commercials you will ever see. It features no screenshots, no image of the product its trying to sell, and ends up looking more like a promo for a new Quentin Tarantino film than anything else. It has it all: hookers, jock straps, a Baxter-like little dog, and exploding cash. Don't get us wrong; the creative side of our brains like the result (especially the music and mini suspense act), but there is no way in Hades this thing could help move PS3s in Europe (where the ad was made for).

The comercial doesn't make me want to get a PS3. What it does make me want is to get all the people involved in the making of this comercial and make a movie. Now that would be interesting. And still not show a PS3 in it.

What is really wierd is here in the UK they keep showing that advert, but it doesn't have the Playstation3 bit at the the end, it just says "This is living" at the end.

The 360 had some pretty weird commercials too in its first few months of existence, but I think Sony's advertizing is the strangest stuff ever conceived.

Well they should have done a bit more research, "This is Living" is the catch phrase for LivingTV channel, When I saw this advert at the cinema I thought it was an advert for the TV station.
