'Son, I'm Glad You Like Your New Phone, But Let's Discuss Your Window-Wanking.'


To promote the Secret touchscreen and 5-mp camera phone, LG puts it in the hands of a stalker who uses it to "interact" with a sleeping woman in another apartment. Wait for the part where he sighs, and the phone shakes, and the covers come off!

Engadget's take: "early-90s softcore voodoo porn." But it gets better. No promo porn is complete without the cheap comedic ending that makes everything feel safely commercial again. Well, unless you're P. Diddy.

Not cute, and creepy to boot. When last LG crossed our threshold, it compared the Scarlet TV to a woman's red dress. And we were like, "...whaaaat?" Maybe they're going through some kind of phase. Like brand puberty.

Aaaaanywho, thanks to Adrants reader Atif for sharing.

This is incredibly disturbing and that's probably the point. What I find interesting is how video on the web is pushing standards into the risque, and really creating two standards for broadcast spots. Traditional video has to be tame. Online video can feature nudity, sexual predator overtones, violence and bloodshed ... and it seems to be OK because enough people respond to make the approach worthwhile.

But man. Yikes!

I kept waiting for that to get less creepy and it just didn't.
