Sums it up for me.

When I was a young man I dreamt of being a rock star - then I bought a Fostex 8 -track, then I became like one of these three fine gentlemen.

I should've just kept walking past that shop window. Damn.

Well I feel exactly the same as that audience when some barbie-I-should-know-her-but-I-don't star comes on and starts talking about fashion...giberisch to me.

Seriously, in our field, if someone is in the market for a board/control surface and has that kinda scratch lying around, I'm sure they're already aware of the thing and have investigated it far beyond the point where three guys reading off a spec sheet on camera will get you all hot and bothered. Does anyone here think that ad is in any way effective. It's kinda a niche market. I mean c'mon, it doesn't quite work the same way as product placement for, lets say, the new Mercedes Benz would.

Still interesting to see though. I really am curious how much Digi paid for that, and how effective they really hoped it would be.

I would guess they paid something close to 1 ICON. Total speculation though.

we give you a board, you talk about it on TV. maybe some sort of heavy discount.

I seriously don't get what was so funny about what I just saw. Even if they had done this about cars (which I know nothing about). Its just not funny, they guys talking on the show sound more like sales men, which they probably are. I don't have a doubt about it in my mind they aren't actual sales people from Digidesign who were supposedly "acting". Mel Gibson would have done it if he new a thing about the product. shit


**** digidesign for giving us another useless piece of shit add. sneaky ass holes

I bet they were actual crew from the show. It makes sense that CBS might want to score one of those boards for free and would devise a way to make that happen.

It wasn't hilarious, but it was funny.

dude, its not funny. you hope you didn't laugh, because the humor was totally off. Don't you realize the sham here? It totally ruins anything from being funny, I probably almost went to sleep while watching this pre-school humor.

I thought it was funny but not for the same reason the audience was laughing. Each line the audience laughed at, left me thinking "Cool".

cool and funny don't really connect with each other though, unless there is some particular reason that is funny...and ...its just not!
