Seriously disturbing PlayStation Advert

1 min read

image Now it’s no secret that I don’t understand or like most of the European PlayStation adverts. The this is living campaign was a complete abomination for example.

However when they started the Black Orchid campaign I thought they had finally gotten a decent head of marketing and the weird was finally behind them…

Well that appears to not be the case, the latest advert out of Vienna not only makes absolutely no sense but is also quite disturbing in a bad sort of way.

For some obscure reason the advertising company thought a good advert would be a picture of a naked man with a thumb where his penis should be… yes that is all….

So is this some hoax or is it real? I can find no reason to not believe it even though it is terrible so I am guessing it was a valid attempt…

Check after the jump to be scarred for life.

    I can’t believe this is real!

  • Ok I’ve finally figured out what the ad is trying to say:

    “Playstation 3, Built like a brick sh!t house just no Mojo”
    “PS3, you’re better of playing with yourself” – DriftZilla

  • kabraal

    Gaystation anyone?

  • Does PlayStation really think that gamers are gay?

    Or maybe the market research shows that PS3 gamers are gay and that all the harcore really seriously straight gamers are XBOX 360 gamers?

    What does this say for the MGS4 launch?? Naked pics of Solid Snake. Maybe there is a pun in the “snake” bit?

    All in all this ad is in VERY bad taste.

    PS South Africa needs to stand up and clear their brand!!


    Leave it and let XBOX 360 prevail!!!

    Look at top right of picture. seems to have a playboy/playgirl logo. maybe its an add in the playgirl? (gay magazine/womens magazine)

  • PillsburyDeeBoy

    Well noted Syph1n. With that considered and not to defend the ad, but maybe, just maybe, it’s a metaphor for “PS3, better than sex”? Which is a lie, but could be the inference.

  • PillsburyDeeBoy

    Are you on Microsoft’s payroll?

  • Syph1n

    I cant remember which movie it was but it goes like this. “this is better than sex!!!” 2nd Guy “you’re obviously not doing it right!!”

  • Syph1n

    If this ad is real i doubt it would appear in anything but such a magazine.

  • Banana hammock

    My guess would be that the new man is defined not by his penis but by his gaming ability.

    Plus, there is no way in hell this is real as it wouldn’t pass any censoryship board because of the pubic hair.

  • Syph1n

    hence the playgirl stamp. Maybe sony are gettin REALLY desperate to sell some consoles.. πŸ˜‰

  • Syph1n

    And next week Ms April and her red ring of…. no no im not gonna say it.


  • alphaV1za

    😯 That is k*k funny…

    There were a few ppl standing near my desk and all eyes turn on my screen when I scrolled the page down…

    That part wasn’t funny.

  • Syph1n

    Maybe just taking alot of drugs?? affect mgs4 launch?? Comeon dude get some perspective.

  • well if you look closely (at the logo) you’ll note it’s the Playboy stamp… and the logo is incorrect as well, so I’m not even sure if this is an authorized ad by Playboy, besides as said previously this ad would go in a Playgirl mag… for girls!

  • Syph1n

    so a shaved naked man would? we live in a scary world…

  • Banana hammock

    Lol, no, but a shaved naked man with a thumb for a penis would get closer than this pic.

  • scotty777

    😯 ,

  • Fox1

    *There goes my lunch* πŸ™

    I think that thumb wants to feel the rumble :mrgreen:

  • Oh I get it, it’s Brucie!


  • Echo16h20
