Sony Ericsson strikes with two more Xperia PLAY ads, controversial as ever
In the last few months Sony Ericsson has made a name for itself with its... Xperia PLAY ads. Some people characterize them as disturbing, others say they are brilliant, but all seem to agree they are... just a little bit creepy.

Now we have spotted two more of these Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY ads featuring the ever-charming (or disturbing?) Kristen Schaal doing her thing, i.e. showing-off all the wonders that the newly-released (in some parts of the world) Sony Ericsson flagship model offers.

We won't give you too many spoilers, but let's just say that in the first ad Ms. Schaal, equipped with an Xperia PLAY, annihilates (including verbally) a version of herself that's playing on just another smartphone.

In the second promo, she teases the daily business tasks you can do with your Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY, and then suggests some rather different ways to deal with your business rivals. Sweet.

Take into account these videos are not appropriate for all audiences, so if you are below the age of 21 15 or above the age of 55 you would better not watch them. It's for your own good.

yes I agree. Finally some good advertisements on Android phones. I can actually see these ads stirring up excitement unlike the others with the green robot with human thumbs.

The ads are actually pretty good and I can't stand Kristen Schaal's brand of comedy but she did well in these ads.

I think more then just you wish she was their wife...I know I do. I love these ads they're funny as hell and not disturbing at all! "It's pocket grenade time hussy, take it!" It's something that when you look at her you just don't expect it to come out of her mouth. She just looks so cute and sweet to hear it.

Holy heck, this is... well yeah, disturbing :))

Seriously, if I hadn't just gotten a new phone a few months ago, I'd get this just by virtue of the ads. Well, and the fact that I'm a PlayStation fanboy XD

Think it'd be worth waiting for the NGP instead? Well, considering the recent tragedy in Japan, I'm guessing that pretty much all of Sony's (and by extension Sony Ericsson's) projected release dates'll be pushed back.

... Natural catastrophes.
