Funeral Interrupted With SlingBox Commentary


Sling Media is promoting its Slingbox, a device that connects to cable, satellite and DVR devices and allows for watching TV on a remote, Internet-connected computer anywhere in the world or in the next room, with a humorous spot, created by Hub Strategy, set in a church. While watching a football game during a funeral, the comments made by the guy in the spot don't quite mix with the tone of the service until all the other church goers chime in thinking the guy is commenting on the deceased rather than the game he's watching on his laptop.

Commercial aside, this Slingbox is very, very cool. For $250 and no monthly fee, you can view and control your home TV from anywhere in the world.
