Remember that $500 million ad campaign we heard about the other day? Well, it’s starting. The first real ad for the Kinect has just hit the airwaves (during Oprah, maybe?) and it’s not bad. I’m a fan of simplicity in advertising, and this has that to some extent, but there’s a lot of lead-up to actually seeing the games in action.
Some other ad ideas Microsoft might want to consider:
- Monkey smashing controller with bone
- Burglar caught by motion camera, then joins in the fun!
- Same as above, but with Santa
- Cute faun butt
Bring on the millions, Microsoft. Your new ad guru is here.
Incidentally, that’s not a very good version of that LCD Soundsystem song (“Yeah”). You want “Yeah (Pretentious Mix),” which I found on DFA’s second compilation disc.
