Sony’s original Bravia advert was a big hit, so it stands to reason that they’d go balls out for the ‘sequel’, going so far as to document the process via a not very well updated blog. Last night at Midnight EST, the ad went live on the site and, while it’s a really impressive technical feat involving untold gallons of paint and pyrotechnic know-how, it simply does not hold up to the original. Maybe I’m jaded (okay, I *know* I’m jaded), but this one really has a ‘Hey, those kids today love the Mentos fountain thing. Let’s do that’ feel to it. Watch it yourself and tell me what you (the hypothetically less jaded person) thinks of it.
As a bonus assignment, can anyone explain to me what the hell that clown has to do with anything?
