Yikes! Check out this Haze/PS3 commercial

Recommended Videos

I’m sorry. While I love my PS3 (go ahead, bring it), and I think the upcoming title Haze looks to be good, I’m not feeling this commercial at all. It’s not nearly as bad as the Bug Too! promotional video we found awhile back, but it still had me cringing.

Haze’s Nectar is a liquid that aids your character as well as other team mates — think of it as an enhancement drug. In this commercial, they inject it into a PlayStation 3 to bring its price down. A second injection brings the price down a bit more. As the video says: “Wow…amazing.”

It looks like we’ll still be playing the PS3 in the year 2048, proving that Sony’s “long-term” goals for the system were immensely successful. And, the question begs to be asked: didn’t Mantel Industries have enough Nectar in stock to get the price lower than that? Oh, and hit the SIXAXIS with some Nectar while you’re at it to add in some vibration action. Does it fix RROD on Xbox 360s?

What do you think? Is this a successful commercial? Will it have you picking up a Nectar-enhanced PS3 and Haze

[Edit: Wait, isn’t the first injection’s sound effect the BioShock money looting sound?]
