Now maybe I’m spending too much time on YouTube watching mindless short clips, or maybe I’ve just got a penchant for anything paintball related, but I think there’s something going on here. A few days ago I mentioned the frankly awesome Nissan QashQuai advert where giant urban paintball markers try to blast an otherwise relatively generic car, but today someone just sent me a link to this classic piece of advertising too…also involving enough paint to liberally coat the Forth Road Bridge. Twice.
However, by chance I stumbled upon a short viral clip which links the Nissan and Sony ads. Remember that advert with all the bouncy balls soaring down the hill, sound-tracked by Jose Gonzalez? Well I found a much better version!
