Squenix brings you the greatest commercial known to man! [Updated!]
I want you all to find a comfortable position where you can fully absorb the majesty of the above video before you hit play.
It is quite possibly the single greatest piece of film-as-surreality since Salvador Dali and Luis Bunuel collaborated for 1929's Un Chien Andalou. The marketing wizards (There is no other term for it. I bet they wear pointy hats to work.) at Square-Enix have captured the joy and whimsy of both their game and a giant fictional bird, as well as the utter terror of a Manson-clan acid trip crica 1971.
The ad is for the Japanese release of Chocobo And The Magic Picture Book on the Nintendo DS and we can only pray to whatever god is doing lines of blow with Andy Warhol and Nico that we get to see this here in the States.
[UPDATE: It has been revealed that this is actually the second greatest commercial known to man. It has also been revealed that Niero is a big, fat jerkface.]
