Google Posts Up New Nexus 7 TV Spots, “Center Stage” and “In Play”

new nexus 7

Google has been taking to the TV hard with the Nexus 7 campaigns, and for the most part, we really like their commercials. I mean, who else didn’t want to shed a tear when we found out Boomer wasn’t doing well? There are two new commercials, recently posted to the Nexus YouTube page titled “Center Stage” and “In Play.”

Take a look and let us know what you think.

Center Stage:


In Play:

  • Nexus 7 handset is actually desirable in recent times. We were looking forward to it and waiting for a long time. Now that the launch of it really desirable

    Fear Less is also new, as of today: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GWXhla78Fac

      thats really old

      • Justin W

        Wierd. It was posted 10 minutes before I posted that comment on Google’s youtube page.

    • Frawlz

      Super old and the chick at the end it completely out of his league.

  • Brett Warren

    Is it me or does the tablet they show at the very end of the Center Stage commercial not look like the nexus 7??? It looks to boxy.

    • Justin W

      It’s just you. It looks exactly like my 2013 Nexus 7.


    Better than the dying dog one :

    • michael arazan

      WTF was that about. How does a dog allegedly dying suppose to sell a tablet and show what it does. Should of been showing someone downloading movies, using chromecast with a tablet, pairing it with their car radio, and having a child do it to show how easy it is. I don’t like commercials of fictitious accounts trying to illicit sadness from you.

      • Frawlz

        I asked google “How do I get home” and it pulled up web searches. Lies!!!!

      • Rob Fetterhoff

        But dude… the dog had the tablet under his paw. HE WAS TYPING THE WHOLE TIME!

  • Qbancelli

    They should be posting the 4.4 update instead.

  • Jeff

    Probably not the best idea to read Romeo & Juliet to your daughter…

    • Antoine Colson

      do you expect her to commit suicide from hearing it?

      Experience is a poor teacher: So, don’t bother and make some
      handsome earning, go to this site… url.az/0fel

  • S2556

    Mine still has multi-touch issues. Quite annoying on an otherwise great tablet

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Guys…Kellen. Tim. Where the hell the is the N5 wireless charger? The Verge had a story saying it would launch Day 1 with the Nexus 5. Didn’t see you guys post about it though.and its definitely not in the playstore.

    • Besides that post, Google has made no announcement regarding its availability. As soon as we hear something, we’ll post it up.

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        Okay cool beans. Tim – Always watching the comments.

        • I was raised in the comments, yo! 🙂

          • Greg Morgan

            Where the hell is 4.4 for the other nexus devices??

          • Google said a few weeks. So, maybe end of next week or beginning of the following week? No official word yet.

          • Greg Morgan

            Guess i’m just impatient. 😛

          • droidrazredge

            🙁 I know google said that but, isn’t that the same time-frame as the GPE ? Especially in the time-frame that HTC said with their GPE. Google would not have GPE get the update the same time or before their Nexus device. Do you think it will be earlier than that ?

          • Alex James Simon

            I’m thinking in the next week as 9 days ago it was announced and HTC said GPE Ones will get it within 15 days of launch, so I’m thinking within the next 6 days

      • Justin W

        So, we’ll expect it around February?

  • droidrazredge

    I like the game one, it really shows who their target market is and why they call their app store the PlayStore. It really shows why the playground is open. I thought it gave good insight into multiplayer games and ways multiple people can use the tablet. The center stage looks like a direct advertisement for the people on the edge of whether to kind the Kindle Fire HD2 or the Nexus 7 FHD. I think it was clever and a smart sneaky way to capture and captivate that crowd.

  • Albert

    These are extremely reminiscent of a typical Apple commercial. I can’t be the only one who realizes it.

    • Alex James Simon

      Not really, Apple commercials usually just show off a feature with a white background behind the iPhone. These Nexus commercials tell mini-stories.

  • aNYthing6

    The game one is clever with the chess part. Nice job.

    • droidrazredge

      I also agree that the game one is clever. Catchy, shows useful things you can do with multiple people and the enjoyment you’ll get out of it too.
