WHAT THE FUCK???????

This single handedly makes me want to kill the man who dreamed it up!!!

How dare he indulge himself in his arthouse/arsehole fantasies at ad school whilst single handedly putting anyone off from buying the greatest of consoles...

C--T!!! "Enjoy????" somebody poke out my eyes....

I am normally a fan of off-beat media projects but this is just garbage...pure goddamn garbage.

What the hell!?!

The ads focused on the weird ass shit that had NOTHING to do with the game or why people should be playing the game...

...Being arty for arts sake is bullshit.

NONE of the characters in the promos had ANYTHING to do with the Saturn.

How the HELL did this kind of ad campaign get greenlighted? Didn't anyone in the executive board room ask :

"Uh...what the fuck does this have to do with video games?"

Or

"Why are we spending this much money on art house shit that will in NO WAY appeal to ANYONE!"

These ads are poser arthouse shit and I could honestly say that with 1/10 of the fucking budget that went into this I could make twice as many ads that are three times better...

The closest this series of promos came to getting it right was the dancing stoner looking jackass in the red hat with sunglasses. I hated him the minute I saw him. If they would have based a commerical on someone beating the hell outta that jerkwad or him liking the PS1 it would have been better...

I fucking hate surreal shit that has little to nothing to do with anything. There are so many meaningful themes they could have based the promos on.

God that put me in a bad mood!

Thanks FC!

damn I cant believe this was accepted as an Ad, no wonder they never sold many consoles.

I feel bad just watching it.

Perhaps you did not see the rings around Sinead's head?

Besides, no titties were featured either. For shame...

Yep guys,your general sense of outrage is completely justified...

Apart from the very tacky Saturn ring around the very ugly bald lady, pointed out by Monsiuer Pierre, there is nothing conceptually relevent in this pretentious piece of twaddle.

My apologies must extend furthest to my blogging colleagues Elderly (who was the first person exposed to this attrocity) and Caleb (whose college degree in this area makes him trebly susceptible to this awful outpouring!)

In no way did I intend to ruin your day!

Loyal contributor Mikey, please know that the content was intended to show how the advertisers can fuck up and misrepresenting something beautiful (whilst getting payed a lot) and probably stand around patting each other smugly on the back for their efforts....

Compare this with the Japanese team's wonderful Segata Sanshiro effort - relevent, entertaining and brilliant and you can see why the Saturn was a flourishing console over there until the year 2000.

If that video represents rock bottom in the world of the Saturn, them for all of us I have a message of hope! From now on the only way is up...

Gnome, I've hopefully addressed the issue you highlighted in the post above... :)

..I haven't recovered fully.... but a little dropeen of whisky would ease the trauma....
