First ad for Google Pixel 3 has star power

The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are being officially released today, which is why the new handsets are the subject of a 30 second ad produced by Google. The company spared no expense and enlisted the help of four stars to help promote the latest Pixel phones. The quartet of celebrities include everybody's favorite television chef Gordon Ramsay, music producer Marshmello, Riverdale star Madelaine Petsch, and YouTubers Eva Gutowski and Joey Graceffa.

Being the latest Pixels, right off the bat the 30 second spot starts off with talk about the camera. Group Selfie Cam, which uses the front-facing wide-angle 8MP camera to shoot selfies of large groups, is discussed. Fast Charge is also mentioned. With this feature, 15 minutes of charging can provide users with as much as 7 hours of battery life.

We know that Chef Ramsay hates when someone serves raw chicken, but apparently he loves to find out the names of certain plants using Google Lens. We guess AI stands for more than adult indigestion, right Chef? And the Pixel 3's front facing stereo speakers are also brought up in the commercial.

You are sure to find this ad play during Hell's Kitchen on Friday, along with a number of other prime time shows and weekend sporting events. But we are giving you the opportunity to view it right now. To do that, simply click on the video at the top of this article.

By the way, this isn't Chef Ramsay's first time pushing a tech product. During this year's Amazon Super Bowl spot, he was one of the celebrities hired to "replace" Alexa after the virtual assistant had lost her voice. That ad can be seen below.

How much money they burn to make this 30 seconds ads? Probably this could justify their $999 pricetag. /s
