What a brilliant idea for a competition! Nokia has hired Pamela Anderson and Gossip Girl actor Ed Westwick to appear in The Commuter a short film short shot entirely on the not-quite-launched Nokia N8 - and you can appear in it too. Two roles are up for grabs - one, we guess a guy, who shares bedroom with Pamela and the other, …
I think Adobe should get some credit too
Pammy wouldn't look that good if it wasn't for Photoshop...
Close your eyes and feel her NOKias ...
That's meant to count as "good looking"? I thought that was classed as "the failure that is plastic surgery".
And she looks happy as well
Maybe she wouldn't look that happy if it wasn't for the N8 vibrate function as well...
...hell I think it took more than photoshop. Polyfilla must of had a look in to.
They've already spent more money on advertising the N8 than they did for testing/supporting the N97!
Let's hope they have some left to support the N8!
Sorry. Well past "sell-by date".
Er, I mean me, not her.... Oh, and note to Moderatrix - if anyone mentions the 'vibrating alarm' feature, ban them for life immediately.
-- a sensor "rivalling those found in compact digital cameras"
As I read it, that means "Not quite as good as the sensor in a bottom-of-the-range compact digital camera".
What? ANOTHER UK-only promo??
Where is the love for us Yanks?
Paris, where IS the love?
Pammy is well past her prime
presumably this gives her lots of brand synergy with Nokia
Quite fitting.. both Nokia and Pamela Anderson are well past their prime.
Just has to be
Set to vibrate.
Then, please, why would you put Paris?
Because she would - look that good? Or because she'd join Pamela in ... ?
I really miss your personal inclination here!
Paris, because she looks better on Photoshop. Sure.
To sell new plastic Hmmm go figure...
Of course she's happy
She gets payed to lay on a bed in her undies, with a phone in her hand - and may I suggest, the average punter probably isn't going to be examining her to count her woody rings.
Now, as for whether that photo would make anyone more likely to buy any phones being advertised with as much, I cannot fathom. It looks to me like nothing more than a cover for a cheap skin 'flic. Even that it would be presented in an article about mobile phone marketing, I still cannot fit the two together.
Maybe if they tossed in a free six-pack of Pabst Blue Ribbon, that would up the sales.
Hey, they could even have the signboards play the tune of that Eminem song, W.T.P - now tell me I can't market it better than Nokia? ><
"Enough already: make way for a gratuitous lingerie pic."
And all of that in the section HARDware..
Way to go on the innuendo, grin, well done. As for the phone, Pamela isn't tits-up, and neither is Nokia. They may not do so well at present in the handset market (sorry Nokia, but it DID need a shakeup, this time is was Apple), but they also make all sorts of other mobile kit so they won't die just yet..
Hmm, I do have a killer feature - maybe I ought to give them a ring. From my iPhone, though :-)
Meatloaf -> Especially from the film Fightclub (boobs bigger than Pammy)
The 1990's called. They want their celebrity back.
the boat has sailed
well after being a nokia lover for so many years ive decided to jump ship, the n8 just didnt get here in time and im ordering my HTC desire. add to that the fact the 5800 ive had has gone batshit crazy after the last firmware update ive had enough of symbian, ive cut it slack for long enough
watch the vid
It looks like a commercial for the iPhone ... the features they "promote" look like how it works on an iphone. So they are behind, that is why they hired Pam as well ... good ole days when Nokia was untouchable .... ;-)
What's the word?
Tacky, desperate... and sexist: why don't we also get video like "In Bed with Eric Bana"?
"Tacky, desperate... and sexist: why don't we also get video like "In Bed with Eric Bana"?"
We will be getting a steamy elevator scene with Ed Westwick, as written in the story. It's sexist too, but as theres one for each sex they cancel out sexism.
