Here is "The Whole Thing" of the This is Living campaign for the Playstation 3.
Bubba says you need to be 18 or over to watch this film.
disagree with a smily?
...it's an inflamatory title even at the start. For a reason ofcourse, but still...I find it funny - for adults only will attract the opossite age category.
yup...deliberate. Sorry :)
i have to say, weird as usual, at least they are consistent.
I was weary at first about having to download a new plug-in to watch the video, but wow, that's amazing DVD style quality with no lag. Pretty impressive.
Yeah, it makes more sense as a whole package than it did before, but still weird as Violater pointed out.
I agree, this is the 1st time I've used that plugin and I was pretty impressed with the speed of the stream given the size of the frame. Oh yeah, still don't get the commercial, although it would be nice if we could have nudity in our commercials in the US.
I wonder has anyone actually seen the ps2 ads? The David Lynch ads...much much weirder "I am the wolfman" I mean wtf...go on youtube and type in "ps2 david lynch ads"...you'll be surprised.
pretty weird but entertaining. I stayed tuned in till the end just to see the weirdness unravel.
When analyzing the video, I noticed that every one of those characters lived a completely different lifestyle, all brought together and unified by that hotel/mansion.
Seems to me like the video is trying to communicate the message of the PS3 being that hotel/mansion and it's consumers can potentially be anyone.
Sony PR team on acid.
Don't care fore the plug-in.
Been same if they just used Qtime.
haven't seen,but why an 18?
(lol at my poetry skills)
Sexual Content, Nudity, and Disturbing Images
but it's not really that bad.
uuuummmmmm yeah... I want some of that water!
talk about choosing between the red pill or the blue pill. so if the ps3 is like drugs, then drugs are bad. mm'kay. LOL
Most of the images are symbolic. Like of the Military = SOCOM, Samuri = Way of the Samuri 3, Woman on buble shooting other bubble shapes some sort of PSN game. A couple others things could be other things as well. Nothing special though.
It is AO rated due to an image or two of nudity.
So why is the guy beating off?
Don't know has something to do with Sony's soccer game I assume.
Artistically it was great although a little disturbing at times. All the characters as noted represented a genre of video games. I am still lost on what the feminine male character represents.
Why the guy is beating off? The character is stimulated by the sport of futbol (soccer) and when he sees a goal being scored, he himself feels the same euphoric way of experiencing an orgasim (when he scores as well.)
This is living?.. hehe, are they trying to tell us that you have to be a bit crazy to have PS3? This video suits better for the slogan something like "Gathering the weirdness"
Funny clip though :)
aint that some f**ked up s**t
Sony makes crazy videos, and Microsoft crashes launch parties w/ boats...to each his own..
So, that's the reason why the PS3 is not selling as Sony expected. They are trying to market this product to people like the ones that appear on this video.
1) A guy that masturbates in from of a TV while watching a soccer game.
2) A drug dealer.
3) Some guy with post dramatic stress disorder and dreams about killing people.
4) A girls that uses drugs.
5) Prostitutes at a local motel.
6) Homosexuals (Or the same guy hugging another man after masturbation).
I do find the clip very interesting; specially the part where the grenade blows up the suitcase full of money. I guess it does represent how much money you need to purchase the console is and what you are basically do with your money if you buy it.
Good Job Sony, I didn’t expect you to be that honest.
nice break down.
you are cheering to the quire here. In a fun way, none the less. I apreciate some and am an avid PS3 person. Hey, a fun elaboration is funny none the less!
looks like hd quality film but what a waste of footage to use it on. Seriously, somebody should put a law to stop 'this is living' ads. The motto itself wasn't even cool when they thought of it. They should stick to stuff like cell, DNA, etc... I stop the vid btw once the guy started to beat himself off (gay) though that chick had a nice ass.
This is why Sony is not doing well. They have lost touch with gamers, with these dumb "high-Life" type commercials. I don't see any reason why I would wanna purchase a PS3 from these commercials. It doesn't work for me. When a little kid sees these commercials, what is he/she really comprehending?
What happend to these type of commercials? Isn't this a gaming console SONY?
http://gameads.gamepressure... http://gameads.gamepressure... I wanna see games, ala these commercials now they showed you what gamers want.
http://gameads.gamepressure... One of my favorites....When it was a "real" Console War, sony needs to make these commercials:
Well I hope you gamers get the point...that what made me purchase SEGA.
Dude you talk like these are the only ads. There are many euro ads. Ones that show games etc. You ever watch the ps1 and ps2 ads? They had similarily weird ads and they sold very well....so your argument is mute. Sorry.
I love it!
By the way, Specialguest hit the nail right on the head with his comment up top. That is exactly what the message entails special.
I'LL TAKE THE GIRL IN THE SHOWER YOU CAN KEEP MY PS3
Too weird to be a video games console promotional campaign.
I would bang the blond chick though.
....you're not the only one.
i like the Doors style music in there,, reminds me of THE END. alittle weird but cool none the less.
Yeah, actually is that a Doors song? Crazy video though..It is sure an interesting way of representing the PS3 and I think a few commenters here got the symbolic nature of the whole thing dead on. The thing I'm most impressed with though is that damn pluggin..I've never had such high quality with such flawless streaming playback. Is this a new program??
I wonder what the budget was for this? Sony should cut back on expensive ads and lower the price of the unit itself, it could sell better that way.
naughty naughty Violater!
If so, This ones for you.
Well, it doesn't really make me want a PS3. But then again, was that really the ad's point?
give people at the asylum something to work on
People knock yourself out on some goodness ps2 ads. You don't what you're missing. http://www.youtube.com/resu...
And really noone knows how your subconcious works except these advertaising gurus. It's all part of a bigger ad campaign to get the slogon "this is living" and "ps3" together...next time you see them with games you'll get the same feeling you got when you watched the ads "wtf" and "that's weird" and "that's intriguing" or a sense of resolve as the fireworks go off...and then when that feeling is linked to the actual console...BOOOM you're gone.
I'm surprised how some people don't know how subliminal advertising works....we get it a lot over in Europe...everything is a bit more "obvious" in the states I guess...
THIS IS BORING
I dont know about you but Cherry in these ads is awesome.
I LOVE IT
The only thing this has to do with the PS3 are the last few frames with the PS3 logo.
i want to bang that blonde chick!!!
