Philips Viral Seductively Sucks Demo Info From Visitors

ambi.jpg

Flipping the tell-me-what-to-do, Subservient Chicken style viral and turning the television into a sexual object, Philips UK has launched Ambilight, a site voiced by a woman cooing sexually laced phrases while images of a television and a lingerie-clad female are intertwined. The site asks visitors to answer four questions about themselves in a manner so non-threatening that before you know it, you've told Philips your age, income, email address and whether or not you live in the UK.

The site was developed to promote Philips' Cineo flat screen televisions and along with the engaging Q & A, the site enters you in a contest to win one of the new TVs. While some will toss this off as "been there done that," there's something about this site, even though it doesn't invent anything new, that keeps one's interest. Well, if you're a guy it does. Perhaps there's a version for women floating around somewhere too. Nice work.

How lame. Slow and childish. I quit after 3rd question because there wasn't enough lingerie pictures.

I'm with the other guys on this. This viral is pretty lame. In fact, it's a pretty good example of what not to do for a viral campaign which is why I've included it in Thursday's (12/01) "Much Ado About Marketing" blog.

Here's a synopsis of what I said:

Thanks for the post.

clueless cooing and invasive second qustion grated in my ear. "OOOh, maybe you didn't understand my question:"How much do you make annually?" is so inappropriate that the sacharin voiced and limp-noodle hynotic soundtrack together made me think of marshmallows melted over phish with garlic sauce. 8P Thankfully, no one needs to lose their job over this perfumed crapola since it was never distributed to the public.

It's not the smarted program running this. She LOVED my first answer: Impotent. It made her blush just like my next try at self description: Debauched.

Ridiculous. She got offended when my pick-up line was: I invite you to suck my balls.

Waste of time.
