With so many laptops, notebooks, netbooks and – even – smartbooks on the market, manufacturers must create increasingly brilliant adverts in order to sap the cash from your pockets. Not MSI, though, which just resorts to ‘cheeky’ adverts.

The manufacturer’s released a viral video for its confirmed x-series PC range in which a spandex-clad man catches the machine between his… ahem… buttocks.

We are pretty confident that some video editing is involved, but the man does pull off a convincing ‘Ow! My rump's sore’ after catching several x-series machines in his bum-cheeks within quick succession.

The advert also illustrates how, according to MSI, laptop users don’t really need a briefcase or carry bag - just a nice arse. ®
