Sony Ericsson’s Xperia play commercial

Posted in Sony Ericsson by Conner Flynn on February 3rd, 2011

A TV commercial for the Xperia Play from Sony Ericsson has surfaced online. It shows the Android mascot getting some stitched on thumbs so he can game with the PSP-style controls. It’s a bit creepy. This Playstation phone is expected to debut at Mobile World Congress later this month if you have thumbs with which to check it out.

Unofficial specs include a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, a backside touchpad and the PlayStation buttons and the ability to play PlayStation Suite games made for Android. Other specs may include a five-megapixel camera with 720p recording and a four-inch touchscreen that has technology from Sony’s Bravia HDTVs.

2012 Passat VW Super Bowl XLV spot uses the force

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on February 3rd, 2011

Volkswagen of America will run two ads during the Super Bowl XLV on February 6, one for the 2012 New Beetle and one for the 2012 Passat. Forget the first ad, it’s the ad for the 2012 Passat that caught our attention.

It shows a young boy in a Darth Vader costume trying desperately to actually use Darth Vader’s force powers around the house, to no avail. It is only when he stands in front of the new Passat and commands it to start that it works. The kid’s father has started up the car with a remote starter in the key-fob. It’s a cute and geeky ad. We love it.

Windows Phone 7 appears in Rachel Zoe commercial

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on September 15th, 2010

Looks like Microsoft has teamed up with Rachel Zoe. The company has launched a Windows Phone 7 commercial based on the hit Bravo series The Rachel Zone Project. Rachel Zoe has always been a fan of RIM’s BlackBerry, but her husband Rodger Berman shows off his Samsung Omnia prototype running a Bing utility on Windows Phone 7.

As Windows Phone 7 gets closer to its launch time-frame, several leaks and official confirmations suggest that customers will be able to choose from a wide range of devices from the likes of LG, Samsung, and HTC.

MoveMen, Heroes of the PlayStation Move

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on September 14th, 2010

Well, this is a bit odd. In an attempt to make you a fan of the PlayStation Move, Sony has introduced these two bubble headed dudes? They are called the MoveMen and they are stars of a new PlayStation Move ad push.

The campaign is directed by FilmFaktisk’s Lars Åndheim and looks like it is limited to Norway. They apparently fight crime with their glowing bubble heads, with PSmove controllers holstered at their side. It’s all rather silly.

Xbox 360 commercial gets pulled for using PS3 footage

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on August 18th, 2010

It’s kind of funny that Microsoft’s ad agency thought they could get away with showing PS3 Final Fantasy XIII scenes, but that is just what happened. A very savvy British viewer dimed them out to the Advertising Standards Authority and the commercial was quickly pulled following a comparison of gameplay between the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions.

The ASA said that “we noted that there was a discernible difference in the picture quality of the two—the PS3 image in video sequences appeared sharper and colors were more vivid than those of the Xxbox 360.” Duh.

Clever Google Chrome commercial

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on December 10th, 2009

Check out this awesome Google Chrome commercial. They are really on to something here the way they have unleashed this one. And of course we always suspected that behind the scenes, rubber bands and hammers and stuff all make the Google machine invincible.

It’s not only creative, but kinda informative as well. Most importantly it’s fun to watch. Google has taken over the rest of the world, so maybe artsy fartsy movies will be next. So let me ask you, does this clever commercial make you want to use Chrome even more, or not?

Commercial Eliminating Radio and MP3 Recorder

Posted in Radio by Conner Flynn on July 14th, 2009

Commercial Eliminating Radio and MP3 RecorderHere’s a radio we can love. Hammacher and Schlemmer has comes up with a table radio that will eliminate commercials and annoying disc jockey banter for uninterrupted music playback at home or using the detachable MP3 player. Just select your favorite FM station and the radio will learn the commercial patterns over two to three days.

When the learning period is over, it automatically records songs and uploads them to the included portable MP3 player. The MP3 player allows you to play, pause, skip, fast forward, and rewind songs and comes with a AUX cable for connection to a car or home stereo.

Another Microsoft Laptop Hunters commercial

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on April 5th, 2009

Remember Lauren the actress from the first Laptop Hunters commercial? Well, she’s got her PC and is probably happily using it while a new guy by the name of Giampaulo goes shopping. If you thought the first ad hit the nail on the head and lit a fire, Giampaulo doesn’t mince words.

He calls himself “technically-savvy” and thinks that the unibody MacBook he looks at is “so sexy,” but ultimately he rejects it because he wants to pay for “computing power,” not the “brand.” Sound familiar? Many people feel that way.

New Microsoft ad cuts to the heart of the issue

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on March 29th, 2009

Video: Laptop Hunters $1000 – Lauren Gets an HP Pavilion
The ongoing war between Microsoft & Apple continues. In this new ad, Microsoft exploits Apple’s Achilles heel, being outrageously overpriced. It’s a brilliant ad that hits them right where it hurts. Because it’s true.

The ad shows a customer looking for a laptop for under a $1000. She searches both the Apple store and a conventional electronics store and finally settles on an HP laptop for under $700. Unlike their previous ads, this one works because it actually speaks to the consumer, and what matters to them. Getting a decent computer for a fair price.

Honda builds giant LED display out of Insights

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on March 29th, 2009

Honda builds giant LED display out of InsightsForget Samsung’s viral marketing ad with LEDs strapped to a bunch of sheep. Honda has gone all out, showing off its new Insight by turning their LED headlights into a gigantic animated Lite-Brite for an upcoming commercial. The commercial is called “Let it Shine,” and you can watch it below.

The Insight can cruise on electric power alone but not accelerate, so it isn’t technically a hybrid. The Insight’s main selling point is the price, starting under $20,000.

The UroClub commercial

Posted in Golf by Conner Flynn on March 12th, 2009

We told you about the UroClub last year. It’s the golf club that you pee in. And now, there’s a commercial showing it off. It’s pretty easy to use. Just screw cap off, relieve yourself, then screw cap on again. Hopefully you didn’t make a mess.

The video is about what you would expect. It shows one guy peeing in the trees, making some rather odd motions and I quote: “The UroClub comes with a towel and appears that you’re just checking out your club.”. Then at some point three old guys are peeing in the trees and giving each others junk a look or two.

I’m a PC and I’m 4 and a half!

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on February 8th, 2009

Video: Kylie
In the latest $300 million “I’m A PC” ad campaign, set to air Sunday night during the Grammy awards, 4 and a half year old Kylie uses Windows Live Photo Gallery to send a picture of her fish to her parents. So, now they’re using cuteness, which is a steep departure from their previous attempts. Some of the previous ads were downright creepy.

Cute is probably the way to go. How many 4 year-olds do you know that use a mac? I bet they aren’t as cute as this kid. How Apple will retaliate is anyone’s guess, but the ball is now in their court.

Mio DigiWalker ad: There’s always a way out

Posted in GPS by Conner Flynn on February 3rd, 2009

Enjoy this commercial, which should have been a Superbowl commercial by the way. Just don’t ask us to explain what goes on in the minds of advertising executives. I guess it could be considered a tad NSFW due to butt cheeks. I’m not sure this will sell many extra GPS devices for the company, but it is an entertaining 42 seconds. Not sure what else I could possibly say about it…

Has this ever happened to anyone? And if so, did you hear that popping sound?

New Lenovo ad for the W700ds

Posted in Lenovo by Conner Flynn on January 22nd, 2009

Some of you might consider this NSFW, even though it isn’t really. There’s no nudity. Here’s the synopsis: Some creepy guy at the office is telling a story about the office hottie and his Lenovo W700ds. He starts bragging about one of it’s features. Next thing you know they’re playing strip poker. In this case, she strips everytime the w700ds beats her laptop. Then it’s time to brag about his second screen and she strips all the way. It all ends with a joke about how big it is and a “That’s what she said” joke.

CNET thinks this came from inside Lenovo, but who knows. It’s stupid yes, and dorky. But also genius as marketing. Sadly in the real world, women aren’t that impressed with laptop specs. Unless I’ve been hanfing with the wrong women.

John Lennon pushes OLPC from beyond

Posted in OLPC by Conner Flynn on December 28th, 2008

John Lennon pushes OLPC from beyondJohn Lennon may be long gone, having died 28 years ago, but he’s still a force for change in the world through his music. And now, thanks to technology and Yoko Ono’s consent, the Beatle has returned in a new OLPC spot.

In the ad, the late musician say’s “Imagine every child no matter where in the world they were could access a universe of knowledge. They would have a chance to learn, to dream, to achieve anything they want.” If you are a Lennon fan and believe in the cause, by all means go make a donation and click through to see the video.
