I don’t even know where to begin with this. This is an ad for SEGA’s Nintendo DS game Kokoro Scan, available only in Japan. It uses the DS’s microphone to detect stress levels in a voice, and then attempts to determine one’s inner feelings.
I’m sick as a dog right now. I’m so hopped up on Nyquil that I don’t know what’s what but I swear this commercial is about people with the Powerpuff Girls hearts for faces talking about a video game.
And then this happens.
And some of this.
And a bear plays guitar.
Now, like I said, I’m pretty effed up right now. There’s no way that we’re seeing the same things. When I wake up tomorrow I’ll rewatch the ad and I’m sure it will be nothing special. Probably just some dudes in the woods playing their DSs. But, hey, if the game really is as messed up as the trailer for it, I may have to devote a Trippy Games segment to it.
Thanks to our own Kris Knigge for pointing me toward this commercial. Come back next week when I can write and there aren’t fluids pouring out of every orifice in my head like I’m a fountain in a hotel lobby.
