The Chase through digital reality. It's an intel ad.

They're selling Sandy Bridge.

That's pretty clever use of space and context.

Generic and predictable sexyAd is generic and predictable sexyAd.
Also, could someone set up a donation page for Intel? Because they must be hurting if they need the free publicity on the blue. [/rage]

But still, it was probably rendered (not in real time) on a Mac with After Effects... ; -)

I miss the dancing clean room techs. Wait, no I don't.

There parts that were clever but I think it could have benefited from smoother transitions, and maybe fewer of them. On the other hand, the point of the ad is showing how fast and multi-tasking and multiplicitous the new processor is...eh, whatever. It's just an advert.

How many more tones can intel put in their little sign off jingle? Maybe they should have a church choir. Or a boy's church choir. Or a little old lady from Nepal croaking out the words. But really, they can only blow up that thing so far...

Anandtech's overview of Sandy Bridge. Ad notwithstanding Sandy Bridge is, in fact, pretty rad.

Except the Intel ad was cute/clever and I wanted to murder the creator of this video (and the singer) half-way through that atrocious song.

I'm pretty sure a skinny, gender-bending Heat Miser shows up on the roof.
