Droid: Do Robots Get Lost?
Posted by Rosepixie on December 20, 2009
I found this ad for Droid cellphones in a men’s magazine and just had to post it.
I love this ad. It made me laugh.
Ok, so can you come up with one example from history of a man being not-lost because he has a robot? Because I can’t. I actually can’t come up with all that many people with robots from history (clearly this is a hole in our history that needs remedying so future people don’t have this dilemma). I can think of hearing about space robots being lost several times, though, so that doesn’t speak well to robots and their not-being-lost powers.
That said, it’s a cute ad. It does a great job of playing on the idea that robots make things better, or at least more interesting. And really, it’s just a phone, not a robot in any way at all. Still, making it sound like you’re buying a robot sounds like it’s way more fun than if it’s just another phone (which, realistically, it pretty much is, even with it’s GPS-like functionality).
