Sincerely, Palm.

(That said, my dog does the same thing. Check out the video after the break. Or don't. Up to you. Thanks to everyone who sent this in.)

Dear Logitech ... Your Revue Google TV ads are kinda creepy

Not necessarily the best way to introduce google tv to the masses. Like big brother is watching you. I get the ads. But i can see them freaking people out. And if anyone knows how well a creepy ad sells people. Just ask palm/hp. Make it look benign/wii like and people will be all over it. Make it VERY simple first to get them hooked and then get deeper. Don't start like this.

The concept is that TV is now interactive in a way that it never has been before. I think they hit right on the money...

Haha. That's freaking hillarious. I just lolapolusa'. AHHHHHHHH!! I want my tv to be able to waddle away like that.

I get it completely. And I love it, a lot. But I can see a lot of the general public misunderstanding it and being turned off to the product (by thinking that the hairy-legged TV is representing the product, which it isn't).

That is funny!

Instead of human features, the TV could have had a cartoon face with some kind of mascot costume legs and would be less creppy but I thought it was funny.

That was awesome, kids were freaked out the first time but now they just keep bugging me to play it again.Lol

Should have known an aggie wouldn't understand advertising.
If this were a product that had been established to the masses for a good amount of time, then this would be a cute suoerbowl ad. Being as though not too many (literally no one) knows what google tv really is, this would be a poor choice for an introduction. Cute and cuddly sell more than adams family. Just saying. None of this scares me off. But jimbob jojo out in the sticks needs something else. Put it this way, did you ever go to quiznos after their little herbal add blitz? Now they have kittens in their ads.

Or how's this.
Tweenage girl in bed with a big eye on a television watching her. Not exactly a way to sell to parents (dad) who is the person who is going to buy this.
Im getting one, but i know what it is.

Holy shiznit batman! What the hell are they thinking! Chomo, rapist, big brother, perv kitteh all wrapped into one ultimate creep 'fest of an ad! Holy hell if i didnt know any better id say NO!

HAHA.. that was awesome.
If I didn't already want one I'd buy it just 'cause of the ad!

.... ok.. well maybe not, but it was still great! ;)
