Toshiba HD DVD Commercial A No Show?

Postby Ian on Sun Feb 03, 2008 11:05 pm

Okay, I've been watching the Super Bowl and unless I missed it some whow, Toshiba's HD DVD commercial has been a no show. Are they going to play it after the game?

Apparently, it didn't air in all areas. Here it is if you want to see it:

Ironically, it didn't air in high-def either. #-o

They didn't show it here in the Portland Oregon area either and it looks like they had 2 versions, unless we missed it while taking a music break during half time.

A lot of people are complaining that Toshiba didn't even make a new commercial, they just re-tooled the existing HD DVD / Football ad.
Punch Cards -> Paper Tape -> Tape Drive -> 8" Floppy Diskette -> 5 1/4" Floppy Diskette -> 3 1/2" "Flippy" Diskette -> CD-R -> DVD±R -> BD-R
