Sony’s New Commercial: FoamCity

Check out Sony’s new commercial for their digital imaging products. I wonder if anyone did their laundry during the shoot? This commercial is due for release in the UK on May 1st but you can watch it here now. I just love Sony commercials. First, they fill the pyramids with yarn, then New York with rabbits, and now, Miami in foam! You gotta love Sony.

Sony Bravia E4000 Series

Sony Bravia E4000 SeriesSony is again releasing a new Bravia Series: The Bravia E4000. Sony’s Bravia E4000 series has the most decent design amongst Sony’s Bravia LCD. Sony’s Bravia E4000 series would blend well with any decor. Unlike other LCD TVs, you can choose your frame color from four options: Midnight Sky, Aluminium, Pearly White and Dark Walnut.

The Sony Bravia E4000 series, when mounted on the wall, would look like a giant picture frame and would blend well if you have an array of paintings dotting your wall. Like the Bravia W4000 series, the Bravia E4000 series has the picture frame mode (See my most on the Bravia W4000). You can even choose from six default masterpieces, from landscapes to Van Gogh.
