Sony pulls a Sony with their new Vita ad

Sony has a long history of horrible ad campaigns, especially in Europe. Yes, they do make some good ones, most notably the Michael ad, but far too often they leave their fanbase blushing in embarrassment and their target audience scratching their heads in confusion. The latest ad is definitely a case where blushing and confusion are running rampant.

Earlier today, a thread popped up over on NeoGAF with an image that shows Sony’s latest print ad for the Vita. The ad is currently running in France, and when translated reads: “Two touch surfaces, twice the sensation.” The quote is accompanied by a woman with four breasts. Seriously. You can see the ad below (click to enlarge).

Sony Vita Ad with 4 breasts

Not only is the ad stupid and lacking in content that would compel anybody to pick up a Vita based on its available software, it’s also highly demeaning and gross. Not only are you alienating women with the approach, you’re also implying that breasts are nothing more than a plaything for horny men. It’s subtle, but by cutting the head of the woman out of the ad, they’re not even hiding the fact that a gamer would have no interest in the woman as a person, it’s just important that she has a nice pair (of pairs) of breasts.

And really, it’s also undermining the Vita too. Hey, who cares about software and the personality of the library, it feels good to rub! That’s all you guys want, a good rub, right?

You can do better Sony. Your fans and the industry deserve better than this.

You know, it is said, the devil is in the details… And it couldn’t be more true right here. Having said that, allow me say to you precisely what did work. The writing is actually rather persuasive and this is most likely the reason why I am making the effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, although I can certainly notice a leaps in reasoning you come up with, I am not really convinced of how you appear to connect your ideas which help to make your final result. For right now I will, no doubt yield to your issue however trust in the foreseeable future you actually connect your facts much better.

    The very crux of your writing whilst appearing agreeable in the beginning, did not sit very well with me after some time. Somewhere throughout the paragraphs you were able to make me a believer unfortunately only for a while. I however have a problem with your jumps in assumptions and one would do well to help fill in those breaks. When you actually can accomplish that, I could undoubtedly be fascinated.
