Android is Ready to Play with Your Minds, Sony Xperia Play Ad Delivers Gruesome to Smartphones

Sony is pulling out all the stops as they deliver a striking, terrifying ad that the smartphone world has NEVER done, and perhaps will never do.

Only Sony can think about doing a smartphone commercial with this degree of horrifying imagery. Many were already appaled by the first commercial where we saw the green we-thought-it-was-cute Android bot with human fingers crudely stitched to its hands, and now we come across with the backstory of where the thumbs came from. In a nutshell, a guy was clubbing on a bar, got hooked up with a girl and the next thing he knows is that his thumbs are gone and is now reporting on some South East Asian police joint. This advertising masterpiece has an editorial feel to it and apparently talks to guys (or girls) that want serious fun on their smartphones. It doesn’t exactly speak Google, it’s all Sony. And we love it!

Hit the break to catch the ad!

Get ready to "Xperiance" Xperia Play.

Finally guys! Sony Ericsson stopped teasing us with the whereabouts of the rumored “PlayStation Phone” also known as the Xperia Play.

Xperia Play is now a real deal and we’ll be seeing it right before Valentine’s day. It’s one of the devices announced at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. If you want to be the first to see the new Xperia Play, wear your best suit on February 13 at 6PM GMT. Meanwhile, we’ve embedded a teaser video from Sony which bordered between creative and morbid.

Hit play. Video after the break.

The Sony Xperia Play Commercial and a Mutilated Android Bot

Android is ready to play alright.

We get two sides of a coin. On one side, we have Sony which is known to deliver a very editorial, sometimes creepy commercials that provokes the human mind; on the other, we have Google, very well known for their clean, simple, yet engaging ads. So what happens when you mesh up the two? Ideally we get a 50/50 collaboration right? Well the Sony Xperia Play commercial tells otherwise. Looks like Sony creatives got the better of Google’s and has launched a disturbing ad that has somehow ‘chopped’off’ the Android’s cute factor. I don’t know about you guys but I like it.

Check out the commercial after the break!

Now Showing: Sony PSP2/NGP Preview Video

'The power is in your hands,' that's how Sony defines the successor of the PSP, the NGP or Next Gen Portable (or PSP2 to most of us).

Don’t we all just wished we were there at the Sony Press Conference at Tokyo? Wouldn’t it be awesome if we were sitting there at the auditorium, all starry-eyed while the Sony executives show off PlayStation’s new stuff? Wouldn’t it be amazing if we hear the words come straight from their mouth instead of just reading a rough manuscript from tech-websites? Well life isn’t fair, unfortunately. However, the best thing that you can do is watch this 2-minute advert presented at the event which explains what the PSP2/New Gen Portable/NGP can do in the most whimsical and visually stunning way possible. So sit back and enjoy the show after the break.
