Nexus 7 “Aquarium” Commercial Returns!

YouTube Preview Image

When this Nexus 7 “Aquarium” commercial was first posted by Google, it was pulled or set to private before most of us had a chance to watch it. Most assumed the pulling had to do with timing since Hurricane Sandy had hit the east coast and the image of an aquarium and people under water on the top of a New York City building was probably in poor taste.

But now that it’s 2013, the commercial is back! It’s also reminding you that there is a T-Mobile version of the tablet as well.

    This is the dumbest most pointless commercial I have ever seen.

      You obviously havent seen any commericals for a Motorola Razr.

    This is weirdly more impractical than vaguely Asian spy robots.

      Almost makes you want to ditch it because of promoting hipsters.

      i can’t believe they used the word ‘poor’, it’s ‘economically challenged’. come on, people. /s

        I can’t believe they said “taste”. Think of the poor ageusia sufferers!

          much obliged for the new tidbit of info.

            When the flood of ’93 happened and the mississippi broke levees radio stations played When the Levee Breaks by Zepplin, people did not find it in bad taste.
            An Aquarium and a hurricane is stretching it to be bad taste.

    This commercial is just plain stupid.
