    I saw this over at the IGN boards, so here's a link if anyone's interested. It's a 5MB mpeg of the Japanese commercial. (although they speak English, too)
    WARNING! This links to the wrong movie! See below posts for the correct movie link.

    I think that might qualify as the most disturbing thing I have ever witnessed.

    I didn't see WaveRace in there anywhere. It looked like a Britney Spears video minus the sexual appeal and with better choreography. I don't see how it was for GameCube either.

    Wow...apparently the video got switched! Sorry 'bout that. I'll find an alternate download link or upload it myself shortly.

    Ah, thanks Corey. Apparently the website accidentally overwrote the Gamecube video.

    BTW, is it (the commercial that they replaced the Waverace commercial with) as bad as everyone says? I'm tempted to download it for myself...I can't resist downloading a truly disturbing commercial.

    I was watching it at work and some coworkers came by, looked at the screen, looked at me, shook their heads and walked off. LOL I think they were disturbed.

    Well, it's possible that some Japanese children might find that commercial entertaining...but personally it just made my skin crawl at the cuteness and surrealness of it all. It reminds me of the Mr. Sparkle commercial from the episode of the Simpsons where Homer is on that Japanese detergent box. [​IMG]
    Man...I just realized I need to save that commercial locally to my hard drive to show my friends in case the website deletes it. It's not often you get to show your friends the exact thing that made you lose all faith in humanity. [​IMG]

    Just watched the clip. Yes, that was a bit disturbing. Although it is not particularly disturbing compared to other things that have come out of Japan.

    They actually paid people to come up with that? As for the Waverace video, it looks rather interesting. It reminds me of SSX when PS2 was launched. Not the type of game I normally play but nice eye candy and fun gameplay would require a good second look.

    Britney Spears video - (Britney Spears + Sex appeal) + CGI cutesy characters + better choreography = that commercial
    The REAL commercial is pretty cool.

    That commercial is Morgan's 'Wet Dream' [​IMG] (no offense kid)
    ...Being buried under a wave of Gamecubes seems like something you might enjoy [​IMG]
    Did you come up with that commercial Morgan? [​IMG]

    Did you see that Amped photo with the lens flare? That was me. I did it on purpose and made it look TOO good.

    Um...the "disturbing" commercial has now been removed...I could care less about the Waverace ad but you guys have really got me interested in the other one. [​IMG] Any idea where I can get it?

    Sean,
    I was talking about the Amped photo for the X-Box that was fixed up in PhotoShop. People said it "looked too good" and thats how it was found out to be fake.
