Pretentious? – Moi?

Olympus UK have launched their new PEN camera with a series of video adverts. You can see them here – click on the video tab to choose between them (once you’ve pressed play to activate it).
I have to say that I’m in the camp that finds the Kevin Spacey adverts pretentious twaddle; more evidence that Marketing people should be first up against the wall, come the revolution. However, the ‘Stop Motion’ advert is a little gem. It also tells you absolutely nothing about the camera, but as a work of art, it shines.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
