Here are some of the more interesting and bizarre XBOX 360 commercials to date.
If these are the top 5, I would not want to see the 5 worst
is it just me or have the consoles (except WII) this gen all seem to have really strange adverts? Still the one with the fake gunfight i thought was brilliant.
I was hoping to use that as an article a few months ago, guess someone caught up... Btw I would of picked J Allard playing pgr 3 commerical instead of that weird kid grooowwwlll. My favorite is the mass water balloon fight and fake gun commerical.
I like this one: http://www.youtube.com/watc... And here's another bit of Indian weirdness: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
tell you the truth, i was going to write the article as, "The good, The Bad and the Weird". But the article became too long. And i couldnt decide if i should add video games or just xbox console and accessories ads.
J Allard PGR3: " http://www.xbox.com/en-US/c... (right side of page as of when I checked) And yes, he really does own that car. "buup... buup... BUUUP!" 360's commercials have been great. I hated them at first because a lot of them didn't seem to relate whatsoever to the console- but once you realize it's all about the "jump in" mentality, they start to make sense. My personal favs: -The Gunfight. C'mon, you know that would be fun. -J Allard PGR3. -The water balloon fight, to "Teddybears have their picnic" or whatever.
number 1 was one of the worst com..i had ever seen not funny at all
The thing about "jump in" is trying to reach a surrealist perspective, you can't do this in real life but you can on the 360, and it will almost feel like the real life. Though wierd, none of the commercials are actually about the games and only about the console experience.
For me its all about the fake gun commercial, gotta love a pretend Mexican standoff!! And the end with the guy on his cell..that's great.
