Pomegranate NS08: The fake phone that does everything

Introduction

As a promotion to induce tourism, Nova Scotia commissioned these ads for a fake phone, the Pomegranate NS08, a ridiculously full-featured phone to promote “a place that has everything”.

It appears the destination site is taking a bit of a drubbing right now, but I’ve thrown some of the other videos after the jump.

And this has nothing to do with the Pomegranate, but it’s amusing (and not in English but you’ll get the drift).

    I know this is a “fake ad”, but you’d imagine they’d have enough money to call up some real German dude and simply ask him to speak a couple of words into a microphone and mail them over. That part totally ruined the fun for me.

    But other than that, hilarious.

    Derek Flint would have loved one of these.

    (If you don’t understand why, go back and watch “Our Man Flint” and “In Like Flint”. While you are at it, go watch “The President’s Analyst” as well.)

    Sounds like they took off Chris Morris’ Wasp T-12 Speechtool.

    so… when do they mention what it is they’re actually selling?
