Toshiba posts sleazy tablet ads, pulls them shortly after
The series of ads are available in both English and French for Canada, and were posted on YouTube, and then quickly made private.
In another one of the funny commercials an actress’s buttocks are getting the limelight as she is longingly gazing at a... copier. So much for subtext! While the commercials can no longer be seen on Toshiba’s channel, a user managed to repost one of them, so you can get an idea of what’s it all about. Are you with us on the weirdness of such advertizing? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

the question is: "does she come with a tablet?"

They should've kept the commercial. Would've been great for a Super Bowl too.

Looks like something targeting Japanese business men. Won't work on me. (Female.) Did no one review these before they turned them loose?
And "I have seen far worse commericials" is not praise. And it is "commercials".

They are implying that there's boobies in their tablets. Just a little reminder that you can watch porn on the tablet. Also don't forget that sex sells.

Not as sleazy as the Hardee's commercials with Paris Hilton or Kate Upton. Both awesome, btw.

Hell No! For starters, what's "weird" about it? I hope you're not one of those weirdos who's uncomfortable with the human body...
Maybe I don't wanna see 50 super-dry ads involving a hand and a disembodied voice!
This has everything, eye-candy, information, humor, and eye-candy! Whats not to like?
