Oh, it’s real. The PS3 initially had very experimental advertising outside of Japan/USA, I remember it well and how fast they dropped it (because they didn’t need more bad press in the era of $600 USD).
Ankh-ef-en-yeso I’m still trying to figure this out. Is this a fart joke? A penis pump joke? A blowjob joke?
Ankh-ef-en-yeso This looks like one of the ads Sega did in conjunction with Viz (a very popular U.K. comic for adults/teenagers that riffed on British kids comics)
Pump, quack etc were slang for farts…
Syzygy the fact that this made it through conception, pitching, writing, planning, pre-production, casting, filming, post-production, airing, and god knows how many other steps in between that involved actual humans is completely baffling to me
