Sony get Tango'd

I found the following clip on the internet and it made me grin. A lot.

If you have visited my blog in the last few days then you will have seen an advert for Sony Bravia LCD televisions that I posted (if you haven't seen it then it's well worth a viewing - see the post titled 'Colour. Like no other' and if you are interested in how they did it or don't believe that the balls were real then see the post before this one).

Anyway, there has long been an advertising campaign in the UK for Tango fizzy drinks with the slogans 'You know when you've been Tango'd' and 'The hit of the whole fruit' and they have made their own version of the Sony advert to promote their drink 'Tango Clear Bravo' (see the link?). Watch the real ad first if you've never seen it and then you will apreciate how clever the makers of this ad have been in making their spoof version. Enjoy :0)

I will have to come back leter and see this one, Bob-kat. My daughter is here doing work on her computer and I don't want to turn on the sound right now. Sorry. Michele sent me.

A good spoof!I'm an ad-watcher (P.R and adverstising being one of my specialisations).My poor frog in this one fell flat! Thanks for adding the "easy email" option.

SO much better than the recent efforts by Tango - they made some horrible adverts lately...this one is intelligent and funny.

Hey...the video is working for me today! I guess my 'puter got over whatever it was angry about :)
Thanks for the post - it made me smile.

I think I need to find another line of work. This definitely looks like an infinitely more fun way to spend the day than simply spinning words.

Thanks for the laugh. This is brilliant.

It's a plague of fruit! Love the visual of the apples bouncing down the concrete stairs.

Suzanne said...

Hi from Micheles!

Now that is a hoot! Very funny!

Ohhhh that is very very clever and funny, too...all the mishhaps...LOL! As you said, this is very clever and really kind of ingeneous, too!

Michele sent me this morning, my dear!

Sadly I can't activate it. We usually buy Sony as we have had good service from them.

Hi Michele sent me.

that's just an awesome add period.

It's a cute commercial, B-K, but it seems more like creative infringement to me than just a spoof. I do like the frog in there tho. I'll vote for the originality of the Sony ad but I can see why Tango used it as the base for their ad. The fruit fit into the format perfectly.

Michele sent me over to karp, B-K. It's just my nature.

Melody said...

That is seriously hilarious!! For a moment there I thought that the frog coming out of the pipe was going to be squashed!

Thanks for making me laugh on this Sunday morning!

I have not seen the tango one on TV that is so good. I have had quite a time watching and reading about how the ads were made on both your blog and CQ's too. Thanks
