New Blu-ray ad from Sony Europe

New Blu-ray ad from Sony Europe

A member of Sony Europe’s Blu-ray promotion group recently contacted WesleyTech to let us know that they have “teaser footage” of a new Blu-ray advertisement up on their site. Instead of posting the “teaser”, I found the full commercial leaked (or strategically placed?) on to YouTube.

Hopefully, they will eventually make this commercial available online in High Definition so that you can get the true “Blu-ray experience”. If they don’t, I’ll just have to laugh.

CrunchGear also has a post about the “teaser clips”. Hint: they didn’t like them too much.

I agree that “teaser clips” for a commercial was a pretty lame idea, but the final commercial looks pretty cool. What do you think? Do you like this Blu-ray commercial or other Blu-ray ads? Do you like any of the HD DVD ads you might have seen? Do you care?

UPDATE: It appears that some versions of Internet Explorer are displaying the wrong video in this post. On my computer, I do see the correct video in both Firefox 2.0 and IE 7.0. The correct video is here.

    Hmm..according to the video it seems that the
    Blu-Ray movie of Pirates Of The Caribbean Dead Mans Chest is slow and the transfer to the BD-disc have
    been a mess including the loading time. So even if you make a backup of it to a new BD-disc it still have the same problems.

    I’m I wrong about this video or is this about something completley diffrent?

    Another reader reported this also. Apparently some versions of IE 6 are displaying the wrong video. I have updated the post and provided a direct link to the correct video.

    The video works fine for me (FF) and No I don’t care about a Blu-ray commercial

    The BD commercial is kind of lame, but at least they have some concept going for them. The HD DVD commercial with the Sopranos guy was super lame.

    I haven’t seen that HD DVD commercial with the Sopranos guy yet… I’ll keep an eye out.

    Thanks for the link. That commercial is all about movie production and nothing about high definition!
