These four Moto 360 commercials are hilariously on the money

These four Moto 360 commercials are hilariously on the money
Last week, we saw a couple of Motorola's new commercials for the Moto 360, and they were fantastic. It turns out those weren't the only ones that Motorola had up its sleeve. We've got four more Moto 360 commercials that range from hilarious to possibly being examples of absolutely terrible marketing (although still pretty fun).

The first two are new ads called "Couple" and "Architect" respectively. "Couple" is the one that we're a bit wary of, because the scenario shown is actually a time when you absolutely would not want to have a smartwatch at all. A couple is getting intimate, and then the guy gets a Hangouts message from his mom telling him to accept her friend request. A complete mood killer if there ever were one, and not exactly the best at selling why you need a smartwatch, by showing a moment when you should be disconnected, but wouldn't be if you owned this product. Still quite funny though. "Architect" is possibly our favorite of the whole series, if only for the small fist pump that the guy gives after his notification comes through. It is a truly beautiful moment. 

The other two ads - "Holiday" and "Golf" - actually came out last week after we posted our original story, so we thought we'd bring them along anyway, in case you haven't seen them. Overall, we're really impressed at Motorola's marketing team. Given the failure that was the marketing of the original Moto X (especially with the rumors of a $500 million budget from Google), this is a welcome success from Motorola. 

Enjoy!

Why are these mini commercials not on television? They are funny and good. If they don't know they won't buy.

Cost large sum of money to push a platform. Even Giant like Microsoft has its limits. Well at least its not a total lost for them, they did brag that Nokia will no longer make phones. Awesome achievement consider Nokia is a total beast of mobile that Microsoft help slayed by poison friendship.

MS did not brag, don't paint a skewed picture with your words. Nokia was in trouble even before MS came into the picture due to complacency to react to the rise of iOS and later on Android, so in essence iOS and Android destroyed Nokia. MS stepped in offered Nokia money to run their OS on Nokia hardware, it was approved by Nokia board of directors as well as investors. Later on the sale of the D&S division again was approved by same individuals as well as regulatory bodies. If anything Nokia and WP helped each other out, under WP Nokia grew and vice versa , they complimented each other. Quit flogging a dead horse, lies and misinformation falls short in the eyes of the truth.

Not from my perpective.. I still using Nokia Symbiam phone when Elop took over as Nokia CEO. When he joined Nokia he also pledge to fight for Nokia interest which we now know to be untrue. Burning platform memo and his emails to Nokia employee are now classic examples of how one could destroy a multi billion dollars company. I don't expect Microsoft fan to admit to these facts. I will serve Microsoft with my eyes open and a dagger under my pillow as well.

"A complete mood killer if there ever were one, and not exactly the best at selling why you need a smartwatch, by showing a moment when you should be disconnected, but wouldn't be if you owned this product." Ummm, you could just turn the watch off. It reminds me of when I was in class for wireless and telephone. Our teacher was talking about in the future having a card that you'd keep in your mobile phone, and when you say get to a motel room or home, you'd remove it from your mobile phone and put it in that phone, and that would then be your main phone. This was in 1997 when they were figuring on having one phone number, like your social security number. People in the class were ranting that you'd never be able to unavailable. I just said, why not take the card out and leave it out? There are always was to circumvent any process. Most are pretty simple if you give it a little thought.

to be honest, when getting intimate, a lot of things that aren't completely in the way of the "elements" are easily completely forgotten. :)
