Sony has released the third in their trilogy for the Bravia line of TV’s. I have posted the first two before here. They again did some interesting stuff, not quite on par as the bouncy balls (my favorite) or the paint cannons, but still great advertising none the less.

There’s a little controversy (not much) over the video and the inspiration for it. Some company named Kozyndan out of Australia created an illustration a couple of years ago that closely resembles the video. Click here for the full-sized panorama.
From the Kozyndan blog:
Its hard to think that people at Passion Pictures did not have this early panoramic of ours in mind when they created this new spot for the SONY Bravia line.
To add insult to injury, someone from Passion Pictures contacted us almost two years ago asking to see samples of our work (including this panoramic) as they were interested in working with us. We sent them samples and then heard nothing from them ever again. (It should be noted though, that the more likely culprit is the ad firm who hired Passion Pictures, Fallon)
Still, its a clever ad.
At least they’re in good spirits about it.
Question: Reason for posting at 4:40pm on a Sunday afternoon during the Cowboys/Patriots game?
Answer: Cause it is 4:40pm on a Sunday afternoon during the Cowboys/Patriots game and it’s keeping my blood pressure down. Sort of.
