PS3 ad. Things do some things while playing Ladies and Gentleman by Hell Yeah (a band which is definatly a "hell no").

Now it says:

"Shockwave Flash

It's certainly an innovative approach, but it interferes with watching the video. Not good, that.

Maybe that will be a problem: sure, all the viewers who sit through it give you money, but because the ads are locational, only US viewers will see ads and so you might get less money (maybe more people from other places will click through on the other ad styles)?

I might be able to find some people who honestly don't know Wil Wheaton


I'm not sure why I'm intentionally drawing more attention to myself for this, but hi.

I myself knew who Westley Crusher was, but not Wil Wheaton, I looked at him and thought, he looks familiar.... So I figured he as from Star Trek but had to verify it via WilWheatonopedia.

OMG!!! I can't believe I made that mistake. To be fair though, not 5 minutes earlier I changed the channel on the radio because they were playing Hell Yeah.

Did anyone else find it strange that MORGAN was the voice of reason in this???

anyway - this was awesome..i agree with earlier posts - your line deliveries have really improved!!!

also, i got the impression that Tycho shoving Graham into the wall was a bit ..spontanious...he just looked a bit surprised.

You don't have to suffer alone, Graham. There are Survivor-of-Tycho support groups that can help you break the cycle of violence.

That wasn't in the script? I had my suspicions... you looked like you were laughing as you hit the wall, but just barely, I wasn't sure. I heard someone make some sort of yelping noise in the background. Or is that the sound Tycho's Hadouken makes?

Ha! Nice catch Wilson. I looked through Kiko's pics, and didn't find any, but I forgot to check backgrounds.

Incredible. After Weird Al, those were possibly the best guests I've seen you have. I'll be watching Graham flick Tycho on the head all week long.

I wonder if there was a bullseye target on the side of his head for aim...

How does the advert decide who to show itself to? Is it like some kind of daemon who shows itself only to sinners deserved of punishment?

I didn't see the vid either btw.

I disagree, actually. I think Mr. Wheaton acted quite well. Tycho's part was funny, but the acting was better for Wil Wheaton's part. :)

Excellent cameos all around, once I knew who they were. :p

Notice my avatar, the equivilant of that hasn't happened on more then 5 out of millions of PS3s (unintentionally of course).

And Old Spice gives me hives.

I didn't think anyone actually owned a PS3 due to the lack of games problem.
