Unaired PlayStation Ad

I wonder why I never saw this before. Just turned it up on the end of a chain of search links. An unaired ad for Playstation. Apparently it was very expensive. Pulled for fairly obvious reasons. The music is an Alphaville song, "Forever Young," remixed by V/Vm. Interesting. Must find out more about it sometime.

    Sony has a whole vault of unaired and banned commercials when it comes to Playstation systems. I dont know what it is about the system, but they really go bonkers with their advertising when it comes to consoles.

    And if Tim Buckley had his way, this is how ALL video game adverts would be. Plus, there wouldn’t be any other type of ad.

    Anyone else reminded of Mamoru Oshii’s Avalon?

    Odd, the logo is from the PS1, but the links imply it was a PS2 ad.

    Such a horrific version of Forever Young, I thought my speakers had died.

    In the pantheon of not utterly stupid gaming advertising, Playstation’s Double Life is pretty damn good relative to what else is out there.

    I love V/VM, and Kirby’s more recent offerings as The Caretaker, The Stranger and HAFTW. Good to see it used in an ad, and good to see it work so well.

    That is excellent. We need more like that.
