Today's post doesn't have anything to do with Hollywood. But sometimes I just feel like writing about other stuff.
So I'm talking with my sister yesterday and she insists she's seen the dumbest commercial ever. As an amateur connoisseur of bad ads, I doubt this heavily, but I indulge. Anyhoo, after struggling to figure out her DVR, she locates the spot, hits the wrong button on the DVR, hangs up, finds the ad, calls me back and plays it for me over the phone. And it turns out she's right. This might be the stupidest thing ever.
Here's the commercial for Xbox Kinect (FYI - It's spelled "connect"). Then, the briefest of explanations assuming you're not caffeinated enough to figure it out.
Shouldn't "The sports you love, the way they're meant to be played" mean you're playing them...oh, you know...outside. They do sell tennis rackets. And you can get them for $70, or less than half the price of the Kinect attachment ($149.95).
