Why compare your console to the competition when you can compare it to vegetables?
The latest Japanese PS3 commercial does just that, putting the PS3 in a "talk" with green onions. Tongue planted firmly in cheek, the oddly humourous ad shows all the things the PS3 can do as well as all the dishes that can be made with green onions.
While you can't play video games or watch movies on a green onion, you can eat it! You cannot eat a PS3.
Well, at least I don't think you can. Maybe if you were really hungry? No, you cannot eat a PS3. Sony loses on that front. Green onions FTW.
Instead of blatantly comparing the PS3 to the competition, this commercial offers an interesting and original work around.
Look at how the ad wizards got the PlayStation circle, triangle, square and X into 世界万能対談. Clever!
