Standoff: XBox 360 advert
Writing about web page http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CoA5mC5FgIw
I’m fascinated by this advert for the XBox 360:-
It was never aired, and it’s easy to see why (though it’s had a phenomenal afterlife on Youtube, with millions of views). It’s odd to watch, because it’s at once funny and clever, yet slightly disturbing. Was there ever a time when it could have been shown on TV? Perhaps in the early eighties, when the fashion for violent cop shows on TV was at its height?
