Intel's Blue men make us blue
Crapper than the bunnymen
Andrew pointed out that the latest Intel ads are crap. People seem to agree.
And here's a nice little reminder of the bunnymen.
I read your article: "New Intel TV ads 'complete crap'"
I think you have misunderstood the ad.
I went to the Intel site link for the Pentium III provided by The Register.
When I clicked on the "Paint" button and this is what
I see: Blue Man #1 comes smoothly down on a rope while painting with a roller and makes a big green " I " on the wall - neatly done.
Blue Man #2 uses catapult to hurl green paint balloons to form another big green " I " but it is not looking as good - rather spotty.
Blue Man #3 pours the green paint over his head, gets on the catapult, hurls himself into the wall and makes the third "I" as he slowly slides back down to the floor and appears dead.
The Blue Man Group has brilliantly portrayed the three stages of Rambus development.
Blue Man #1 was how Intel first saw Rambus - smooth and neat
Blue Man #2 is when Intel first got into bed with Rambus - not looking as good - rather spotty
Blue Man #3 is showing the "morning after" when Intel looks at Rambus, attempts a cover-up and then hurls itself against the wall and falls dead.
I hope this clears things up.
Thank you soooo much for saying it as it is. When I first saw the Intel ads here on TV (san francsico, BTW), i thought "oh my god, this is even more horrible than i could have ever imagined". it was when the intel logo came
up at the end that the ad turned from simply bad and embarrassing to ...almost tragically painful.
Thanks to my selective memory i had completely forgotten about the bunny people. but now that you mention them, i wish they were back, too.
No matter how lousy the new Intel ads might be I defy them to be worse than the Apple TV ones.
I'd challenge anyone to detail what makes Apples computers worth buying on the basis of those ads. Perhaps that the screens are a nice shade of black.
If I were in charge of marketing there.... then I guess I'd be getting a much bigger cheque. Hopefully.
