Playstation Vita Commercial Description

2012 Playstation Vita commercaial starts out with a guy sitting on his couch playing Sony PS3. He apparently doesn’t want to leave the house to go to work, he’d like to keep playing PS3 on his couch. Luckily Sony has a solution for that! The guy picks up the PSVita, and now all of his problems are solved. He is able to leave the house, and walk down the street while ignoring the world and playing his Playstation game. Thank goodness for that.

More About Artist & Song

Oh man, if you are familiar with Atari Teenage Riot, and this song Black Flag, it’s almost ironic to see it in a commercial for a mega corporation that is advertising a product that is meant to keep a kid staring at a screen at all times. Atari Teenage Riot is a German electronic hardcore group formed in the 1990s. They are a very political, almost anarchist group. I’m not picking a side here, but it’s just interesting to see a song used in a Sony commercial with lyrics like: “People of whoville! We need to slit the grinch’s neck! we’re low-paid prostitutes with no fishnets.” Anyway, it’s a good song, and makes me want to take the man down. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go throw a shopping cart through a window. Oh and if you don’t mind, I’d appreciate it if you would buy this anti-capitalist album on Amazon, to help support the site.

Oh and while we’re at it, here is the music video for the song featured in the Playstation VITA commercial, its actually a pretty cool video:

Ad Voiceover Says

It’s a problem as old as gaming itself. Stay home and just keep playing, or get to work on time so your coffee-breath boss doesn’t ride you like a rented scooter. Who says you have to choose? Your PS3 stays home, but the game goes with you. Never stop playing. PlayStation Vita.
