Creepy Nokia Lumia 2520 ad is creepy
A new Nokia ad posted on YouTube yesterday is taking a rather creepy and cryptic approach to marketing its all new and powerful Lumia 2520 tablet.

We won't beat around the bush, it does seem like Nokia is trying to suggest that its Windows 8 RT tablet is much alike a... mullet? Are we to infer that the slate was as ill-conceived as the 80's hairstyle, then? We jest, of course – we actually liked what the Lumia 2520 had to offer – and theinvasive “For work. For play” slogan left little to the imagination. You know what, we'll just let you take a peek at the 2 minute odd ad right below. Comments section is all yours.

Piqued your interest? Great, now go on and check out our in-depth review of the Nokia Lumia 2520 here.

That's indeed one of the creepiest i've witnessed in recent times...
Nokia's always had a different approach in its ads.

The fanboys will say Microsoft is responsible for this piece of crap not Nokia.

It's for business or for fun. That's what they're trying to get across.
It's still a weird ad, but I kinda doubt they'll show it on tv much.

Nice thing to show the tablet without the unicorn keyboard! Also in the only available color besides black.

This is slightly better than the Seinfeld ads that Microsoft had a decade ago which isn't saying much.
