All This to Sell a TV Set

Sony BRAVIA - The Advert

Have you seen this Sony ad? Quite amazing what a company will spend its money on. Be sure to watch the "Behind the Scenes" clip.

Our latest TV ad - featuring massive paint explosions - took 10 days and 250 people to film. Huge quantities of paint were needed to accomplish this, which had to be delivered in 1 tonne trucks and mixed on-site by 20 people.

The effect was stunning, but afterwards a major clean-up operation was required to clear away all that paint!

The cleaning took 5 days and 60 people. Thankfully, the use of a special water-based paint made it easy to scrape-up once the water had evaporated.

Keeping everyone safe was also an important factor. A special kind of non-toxic paint was used that is safe enough to drink (it contains the same thickeners that are sometimes used in soups). It was also completely harmless to the skin.

I can't begin to imagine, with the CGI available that can convincingly show cities being flattened by atom bombs, why in the world they felt they had to go through with this massive undertaking. Its madness!
