PS4 'Perfect Day' Commercial Gets New Meaning in Light of Lou Reed's Tragic Passing

Hardcore Gamer: Although Reed would probably lament the fact that a commercial of all things would recall the strength of his music, the "Perfect Day" ad now acts like a stirring tribute to the master musician and hopefully has inspired a new generation to discover his brilliant work.

No doubt. I am sad I keep seeing the abridged version now a days. RIP Lou Reed, hopefully your memory will live on in PS Gamers for years to come.

Lou Reed passing is sad.

One of the greatest Rock'N'Rollers ever.

Ever? Ehh. That's a big statement.... especially for Reed.

*Not trying to be mean. It's just Reeds name doesn't come up a lot when I discuss greatest rockers ever.

Whose name does come up?

lol, so a video game console commercial is a tribute to Lou Reed... C'mon now guys. I doubt they're gonna show this commercial at his memorial.

For us gamers that liked his music it is a tribute :/

SilentNegotiator920d ago

I have to agree. Just because he died, doesn't mean that anything featuring his work is a "tribute" to his career now. Especially a TV commercial that just happened to be featuring his music when he passed.

I've been listening to a ton of velvet underground lately...very unfortunate and coincidental that lou's passing coincided with my spontaneous desire to listen to his music. It's gonna be tough listening to sunday morning again

Haha is this a joke? I enjoyed this advert as much as the next person but come on, this is a tenuous and shoddy coincidence.

Savantcore920d ago

No I didn't. The author is trying to suggest that Lou Reed dying offers this advert some sort of poignancy, when it's just a cheap attempt at touting an old man's death as some massive benefactor to PlayStation's marketing team.

You know what's going on at Sony right now?

"Hey, you hear Lou Reed died?"
"No way! Didn't we use his music for that ad?"
"Yeah we did"

The end.
