Okay, I know this is mostly a film website, and sometimes we talk about TV shows, too. But this is something I couldn’t pass up the chance to talk about! Plus, gaming is becoming an ever more lucrative sector of the entertainment industry, so why not?
Below, you will find the new PlayStation 3 ad that will be circulating in Australia:
YES, that is supposed to be a THUMB! Get it? It even comes with its own slogan, which you can see on the top right there: Playboy Forever…!
(Click on the picture for the MUCH ENLARGED version if you don’t believe me that it’s a thumb!)
I’m sorry, I love this. I went to school for marketing, have worked in the marketing departments of some very conservative companies, and this just makes my day… They had the guts to just GO THERE, and you HAVE to give them props for that!
Now, something like this would never be allowed in the United States (Think of the children! THE CHILDREN!!!), but in countries where people like Bush would NEVER get elected, I guess this is something that would be much more tolerated. You know, places with a SENSE OF HUMOR.
What do you think?
