A bizarre new commercial for the perpetually-leaked (but as yet still unconfirmed) Sony Ericsson Xperia Play has emerged on Norwegian site Droidnytt. Showing the Android mascot with creepy stitched-on human thumbs, the ad proclaims "Android is ready to play".

What's also interesting is that the footage of the device seems to show it running the stock Gingerbread launcher and UI, whereas a leaked prototype obtained by Engadget last month was running Sony's TimeScape UI.

Rumored and leaked since the dawn of time, the Xperia Play is expected to be officially unveiled at the 2011 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona later this month. Check out the commercial for yourself after the jump. [Droidnytt]

A very hard-hitting look into the seedy underground of the Asian blackmarket digit trade.
