Hey Sony, No Lying In South Africa
Posted by XanTium | 27-3-2007 13:52 EST

From mybroadband.co.za:

A Playstation 3 advertisement which appeared on the CNA website claimed that "The PS3 is built on the revolutionary cell-processor, which is 8 times more powerful than most computers" and that the "RSX Graphics Technology - twice as powerful as the most advanced computer graphics engine available today."

Four complainants disputed these claims saying that the advertisement is misleading as the respondent has no proof to substantiate the claims.
The Advertising Standards Authority of SA upheld the complaint and ordered CNA to withdraw the claims with immediate effect.

You know you screwed up when your commercial gets yanked, you know someone got fired over that shit. Just like when someone got fired ove that cornuts commercial.

cornuts just bust a nut
cornuts just bust a nut
Hey timmy will you bust a nut in my mouth

That was the jingle for the commercial i shit you not, it aired in the states for about a week before it got yanked.
