Painting the town red. And yellow. Green too…

Bravia Paint advert

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!

    Those ads are really fab. I wonder if the advertising people are paintball fans!

    Amazing ads! No wonder Sony is popular.
    I don’t know how were they able to get it done but it’s really awesome (love the color’s effect)
    I already sent a link to my friends to let them view this one.

    I’m going to dress as that clown at my next game 🙂

    Maybe they got the idea from it. Who know? But such an amazing clip. I don’t know how they made it but one thing for sure they got my attention just to watch this clip.

    Really colorful indeed! Great imagination and very creative from Sony!
    Wish to see more videos such like this one.

    That will make you more of a target. I shout out loud “Never mind other people, Shoot the clown! Shoot the clown!” LoL (If I were you don’t)
