Nintendo Plays With Sony's Balls
Oh look, Sony's got another Bravia Balls ad. Oops, sorry. Pardon our confusion. We're easily suckered by such similarities. When ever we see colored balls flying though the air we can't help but think of Sony's...uh...balls. But no. This isn't a Bravia Balls ad. It's a Nintendo commercial breaking Monday, April 16 introducing the Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl games.
Leo Burnett created the spot entitled Pokeballs which features children in a variety of different locations watching Pokeballs fall from the sky in anticipatory amazement. After Sony Paint, we were in the mood for another ball spot but, alas, this isn't it. Nintendo's got Sony by the balls now.
