With so many laptops, notebooks, netbooks and – even – smartbooks on the market, manufacturers must create increasingly brilliant adverts in order to sap the cash from your pockets. Not MSI, though, which just resorts to ‘cheeky’ adverts. Can't see the video? Download Flash Player from Adobe.com The manufacturer’s released a …
That gives the full meaning of "Laptop for arsehole" that Apple has been working on for a while now.
Written on a Mac.
Congrats MSI, after watching that, I'm never going to buy any of your products.
I will probably end up with some weird fetish or OCD involving sniffing the spine/hinge of every laptop and netbook I see.
I'm going to find a dark room with a dirty mattress, so I can rock back and forth with some very unhappy thoughts.
Makes me think though, do MSI provide a warranty against cracks appearing in their products?
Is it some kind of prison metaphor?
play it backwards to get the real message
Trendy netbooks are actually a bit shit. Just about powerful enough to run XP, and too big to carry around all the time.
So on Ebay...
So when we see this turn up on EBay with the description "New laptop, slightly soiled".....
I'm sorry, but it looks as though that chap's attempting to do the unthinkable - achieve a Darwin Award whilst still remaining alive...
(Remember: permanently removing yourself from the gene pool before you have a chance to reproduce could entail the accident making you infertile whilst still remaining alive)
Jolly Roger? Look below the skull for a much quicker way to achieve the same result...
No why does that remind me of the Durex XXL ad picture (the one with the plasters)?
The flasher mac, please.
very poor taste indeed.
doctors have heard it all before
People come up with some ludicrous excuses (so I'm told!) for how certain items and appliances got attached to, or inserted into, their more intimate areas. However, lashing up a youtube video just to explain why you've got a USB stick up your bum, is taking it to rather extreme lengths .
..this advert should have been used to promote the Wind?
not really though
A b3ta user did a nice video explanation of these tricks.
a painfull trick, if not for the CGI :D
Wow! Sod the guy with the cheeks, that guy throwing the laptops is incredible. England could do with him against Australia next week. Mind you, the guy with the cheeks has potential as an out-fielder...
So where's the slogan ...
"Buy our laptops, get a bum deal" ???
Should help their sales bottom quite nicely.
How many laptops they went through, and how many times 'the catcher' got clobbered by a stray laptop.
Saying that, the bloke throwing is as impressive with the accuracy he can send a MSI through the air.
My that looks like
San Francisco in the background - It explains a lot. Of course now also we know that those laptops are s@#t.
Ummm exactly HOW did he find out he could do this?
I can't ever remember asking anyone to throw a laptop at my ass
AND if they did I'd smash it over their head
Paris.... Could she or couldn't she catch a laptop with her ass
Has to be said
This proves just how shitty MSI are.
U be the Arse !
If you're gullible enough to buy a laptop based on this kind of tripe advertising U be the ARSE!
This guy's got MSI wind
So it is propbably not
cutting edge technology.
Wind up your arse
Weren't MSI's netbooks called 'Wind' previously?
Didn't anyone tell their agency?
I don't know quite what to say about all of this but the IT angle is... well...
Can we get a speechless icon please?
Not quite sure what message they are trying to purvey here...
1) MSI netbook - Shifts those stubborn cling-ons
2) MSI netbook - Whatever you do, don't try to use it as a computer, it's better as a frisbee
3) MSI netbook - There's a reason it smells funny
4) MSI netbook - If you worry about what they do to you pizza in the kitchen, you really don't want to see what we do to your netbook
That is the weirdest ad I have ever seen. I will never forget MSI x laptops. I do not think I will buy one after watching the ad though - the associations are too off. MSI should have contracted the ad out to some JAV-starlet porn flick shop instead.
Cant see this applying to execs, sadly!
Health and safety want a word!!!!!
Don't aim for the face!!!
Flying buttpliers, anyone?
Ren & Stimpy reruns, yee-haw!
The butt of all jokes
Waits to see what other arse relatedjokes will be posted
I'd guess they are foam "laptops" (especially given how easily the guy was throwing them in the stacking scene), and some form of magnets to make them stick to the 'catcher'. His arse looks decidedly mis-shapen in some of the shots.
as well as not needing a bag or carry case, the advert could also be saying that the machine is crap.
Where are my royalties?
for telling MSI customer support to stick their laptops up their arse?
Ah, but this is sticking their laptops up someone elses arse.
I'm afraid that your prior arse doesn't apply........
Was the throwing dude...
...passing MSI Wind?
Apple will Retaliate....
....with a Brown-i-mac
my taxi is on the way
I can't believe anyone thought this is official MSI advertise, or in any other way officially affiliated with MSI. Official MSI demo site for X-Slim series is at address: http://event.msi.com/nb/x340/index.html, where you can see in what style official advertise is done.
However, MSI recently started X-Slim video contest (http://xslimvideoevent.msi.com) for people to make funny videos with theme of new MSI ultra light notebook series. This 'butt' video was uploaded to the video gallery on the same site among all others user videos, but was soon removed as it was flagged as not appropriate.
How much do these cost ?
In other words, what's the bottom line ?
I'd love to date that blonde guy; any man who can catch a laptop using his ass must have a very nice tight butt for *ahem* doing *things* with him... (he'd be the catcher, I'd be the pitcher, if you get my point...) ;-)
...the jubs catching verion, or better still the clam-shell to clam version.
The corpoes who make them ought to have a laptop shoved right up their a*se. Preferably one of those exploding Dells.
Now catch a powermac g5 in your butt and then I'll be impressed.
