back to article Guy spills on girl in weird Huawei tablet teaser

Chinese comms kit maker Huawei has posted a "sneak peek" video of its MediaTab tablet - and rather a curiosity it is too. The video, not the tablet. All we can say, after watching it, is that the MediaPad has a camera and a headphone port. No doubt it has a screen too - 7in, judging by the size of the tablet - but it is never …

My inner cynic...

...reckons that the reason you don't get to see the screen is that this video was shot *after* the external design prototype was crafted from purest Aluminium and *before* the internal gubbins could be crystallised from their vapourware state.

If I were in a bitchy mood, I'd speculate on Apple's marketing team having a patent on that process. Good thing I'm all smiles today, really...

Also...

It seems to have a magically jumping red lanyard/cable which instantly swaps sides.

I bet the ipad can't do that.

Well at least we see at the end

And they all lived happily ever after.

Doctor!

I'm a little worried that the gentleman's special sauce is blood red. Perhaps medical intervention is in order...

that is weird

In ads, you usually get to see all sorts of smiley happy handsome people in order to suggest that owning the product is your ticket to having these kinds of friends. But that can't be right here because few people are going to buy a tablet if it means you get to hang out with uncoordinated gurners who exist in a state of perpetual confusion at the shiny bright things...

So I can only conclude that it *is* some sort of pearl necklace analogy. Curious.

Or perhaps its screen is ketchup-resistant.

It's so engrossing you'll not even notice when the zombie apocalypse arrives?

That drip of red sauce

Seems to lead to an instant, grown-up, mixed race family.

Or wait. I watched it without sound, maybe it took twenty years to boot?

You realise

You realise that there's a whole genre of Japanese pornography that involves men running up to womens and.. err. squirting them.

(I need to get out more. Unfortunately the judge made me wear a tag).

Tip to the Corpse

It's a nod to Cannibal Corpse's ballad "I cum blood".

Also, he needs a doctor.

Good God!

Good God man!

I have seen more convincing acting in cheap porn... er, I mean... erm... well, I have a friend, you see, who says that porn films often have poor acting... er, yes... that!

Guy spills on girl

Could have been worse - he might have given her a pearl necklace.

I think I've sorted it out.

You don't see the screen, because she's so preoccupied with the appearance, touch and feel of it that she hasn't yet worked out how to switch it on.

But the guy watching certainly knows how to do it -- he's read the sauce code.

In China...

This is normal. Token foreigner (usually a teacher) paid some money (usually 300rmb) to appear in a commercial (usually posing as a doctor or engineer).

Total lack of imagination. *check

Not showing the actual product in action. *check

Horrible music. *check

Bad acting. *check

Somebody has to get fired! Really! Kill it with fire!

at least.....

.....it wasn't mayo!

But what a CRAP advert, it couldn't have been more cheesy if done by the cheese manufacturers association (or is it board? Ok, terrible pun, bored now......I'll get me coat).
