Now I remember what it reminds me of. The comet approaching the planet in FF7, the music sort of sounds like that too.

Wow, domination of post-rock loving nine-year-old demographic confirmed. Brilliant. Reminds me of the way they locked down dustball fetishists with the PSP. Anyone have time to do a parody? I'll save you the conceptual stage. Kid looking at sky.

Way too many people are going to think Spiderman 3 comes out 11-17-06.

Also, why do the kids have red backpacks on???

It's the theme color for PS3. Black and Red.

Edit: I'm amazed on how much people are taking this Spiderman font out of proportions.

Anyone else notice the time on the wall clock - almost 3.

I thought it was a cool ad but the look is really misleading.

You could easily replace the end text with:
11.17.06
War is coming

I don't mean console wars but a real war. Add in zeppelin-like imagery flying overhead, bleak gray landscape and it's a rather grim and odd ad.

Pretty cool ad. I like all the subtle 3's it gives, but I can see people definitely thinking this would be a Spider-Man ad or something. It is way too ambiguous, and shows nothing of the product at all. More of a teaser than anything else.

Nice music, too.

I hate these commercials that don't show anything of the product. It was cool one time, when Apple did it in the 1984 commercial. It's not cool anymore.
