Google releases a new pair of Pixel phone ads a week before launch day
Just a week before the launch date, Google keeps pushing its new Pixel phones hard. The company debuted a new pair of short advertisements designed to get the word for the smartphones out and establish Google as a smartphone maker.

Big G is taking its advertising campaign very seriously, pouring millions of dollars at a fast rate into it. However, it's not clear whether these adverts will be turned to TV spots – though, given their shortness and the mass-appealing theme of "humanizing" smartphones running through them, it's not impossible at all.

The Google branding is strong within these ads, with the simple visuals of the familiar search bar seen morphing into a smartphone's outline and the Pixel getting highlighted as a phone made by Google. Watch the two ads below and tell us what you think of them.

Not too bad. At least I can tell what the hell is even related to Google here, unlike some of Apple's ads (I didn't say all of them, just a few of them are confusing af). Apple's ads look like they appeal to only Coldplay fans, and that's not a slant against Coldplay.

The stage has been set the King aka the Note aka Joffrey has fallen and Google aka the House of Targaryen shall rise with the Pixels and rule the Kingdom of Android. I foresee this prophecy happening.

Not a fan of these ads but I have seen worse. Sony makes the best promotional videos and ads but they ruined their brand somehow and the ads don't do anything despite how great they are. They usually hype me up for the product though.
