Parody shows that Asus marketing needs a boost
When there are good mobile technology commercials, we bring them to you. We've shown you guys the weird Android commercials, the better Nexus commercials, and of course some good Apple commercials. But, this time around we wanted to bring you a parody of an older commercial. The ad was for the OG Asus Eee Pad Transformer, as you can tell by the GPS working in the commercial, and wasn't the best when it came out. 

Now, someone has decided to do a parody of that commercial, or more of a Riff Trax/MST3K type of thing where a new narration track has been dropped onto the original commercial. The parody is definitely pretty funny, but the best bits are simply bad decisions by the Asus marketing team, because really, who has ever done "got your nose" to anyone over the age of 3?

You can check out the original commercial if you want, and we'll just embed the parody below.

This ad was probably made by an ifan,no doubt concerned about the rise of android tablets especially this year with the transformer prime kicking it off and trying their best to make a comical ad against asus.

The thing is the most ironic factor of this parody ad is that its almost the exact type of ad and pr that apple actually uses to sell its products to susceptible ifans.

Apple always bombards with 'this is so cool'.......'you love it',always hinting and social popularity and acceptance if you display your the owner of an apple product as every apple product is somehow amazing market leading revolutionary stuff, and of course 'Apple loves everyone of its fans'.

I'm in agreement android manufacturers while having the best tech and product and majority market share they really should advert better or in some manufacturers case actually make an actual advertisement full stop. Seeing how the products are so successful now one could only imagine how much they be with better advertising. The thing is with android it goes kinda along the lines of Htcs moto of quietly brilliant,and doesn't resort to the apple 'Im cool,everybody now loves me,I've arrived' kinda mentality

^^ iPad 2 commercial

Apple, usually, shows the product being used in front of a white background. The focus is on the product itself and it doesn't distract people with other garbage.

That Asus commercial is just god awful. If I saw that on TV, I'd make fun of it too. I agree with you guys though. The device itself rocks. I agree with PA on their advertising efforts though.
