Cool Droid Commercial

Just saw this for the first time. People in space suits go underground through a tunnel and a series of of doors until they come to a room with a black floating "crystal" sort of thing revolves. One of the people puts his hand inside and it comes out and turns into an android hand with a Droid phone.

Cool ad.

This one: [www.youtube.com]

Cool ad? To each his own.

To me it was breathlessly silly and stupid.

What's their point? They don't make one in this ad IMHO. It's all effects and nothing else.

That dramatic music makes it just an Apple Super Bowl 1984 ad copycat.

Fire your ad agency, Droids. They're unoriginal incompetents. On to the next. Good luck!

I think the reason I enjoyed it was that I thought it was a promo for a new TV show. As tv ads go, this one caught my eye. To each his own.

It's a PSA to warn nerds what happens when they use Droid phones.

I think it's a cool 30 seconds, but it's miserable as an ad! secret smiley

I guess they think their only target demographic is nerdy 12 year-old boys or something.

Sorry Jim,

I have to agree with the others. When I saw it I thought it was an ad for a tv show or movie (but not a good one) or a video game. It was a "WTF?" moment when it turned out to be for a Droid (dumb product name too). If this device is to be taken seriously as a competitor to the iPhone, they really need to rethink their advertising.

Who else would buy one of those?

Who else would think "DRIOD" is a good message alert tone?
