Ad for Nokia Lumia 925 in Italy goes 'Matrix Style' to promote Action Shot feature
Over in Italy, Nokia called on the Matrix to help them advertise the Action Shot feature found on the rear camera of the Nokia Lumia 925. The feature allows you to capture an entire sequence with the snap of a shutter. The feature even allows you to blur the background if desired.

Don't expect to see this ad outside of Italy. Nokia uses different agencies throughout the world. In Italy, fiddling around with the Action Shot feature must have given those working on the account the idea to call on the Matrix for the ad. If other countries continue with the movie theme for their Nokia Lumia 925 ads, does this mean we will see a reference to Jerry Lewis in the spot for France?

I don't why but I didn't get the ad at the end, what was he throwing at that guy? It made it feel a bit rushed and sketchy.

The wedding ad was to poke fun. This ad however, is to show the action shot feature! Complain much?

Well, Matrix is a great movie, the wedding ad was amazing, but this one is pointless, they should do showing something more realistic and in real time. But it's good that they are making more ads.

I don't watch much TV but I haven't seen this ad yet (I'm Italian) instead every 2 minutes a Galaxy S4 commercial pops up...

that's right, here in India they do the same. Most of the commercials are from samsung only . Now the thing is what they advertise ? Octa-core Processor?2GB RAM?13 MP camera? no nothing but some of the Gimmick software tweaks, like Sound-shot etc, and that really works. Most of the people get attracted to these Gimmicky features, when they watch it they were like "WOW" that was awesome!! ...
