Video: pie in the face = Xbox sold in Japan?
Okay, we've seen some weird foreign Xbox ads (no, really), but this one takes the cake ... er ... pie. Apparently, a (notably attractive) woman dodging pies was meant to pique Japan's interest in the original Xbox. While we have to admit that evading the attacks of a pie-tossing machine would make for thrilling digital entertainment, we have to question the logic of using the same scenario to sell Xboxen. We can just imagine the illustrations on the whiteboard in the Microsoft marketing dungeon:
1. Hot girl
2. Pie-tossing machine
So, for the record, we have Do!Do!Do!, "There's a Locust under my bed," and a pie machine. And they wonder why they can't move consoles in Japan.
