The Balls Entered Without Notice

Maybe I was out sick that day or was otherwise un-San Francisco-ed, but I simply don’t remember when we got hit by 10,000 bouncy balls for a Sony Bravia advertisement. It seems that this happened around the end of October, 2005. There were a good number of blogs that covered it, yet once again, I was unaware. In fact, I don’t know what much I was doing then other than chilling out after being laid off two months previous.
But, as it turns out for those who didn’t know about it (like me), the end result was quite, quite cool. If you’re curious, watch the commercial below in much less than cool YouTube resolution…

Once again, if this doesn’t seem familiar it’s because I believe it only aired in The Europe, again proving that we’re not cool enough for nuthin’ in these here states of America.
If you’re curious for a spoof, you can enjoy it here. There are also other versions here [NYC] (which is actually my favorite), here [Egypt] and here [UK I’m guessing]. And just in case you think it’s still all fake, check out the video for making of in San Francisco
