With Google’s last two Nexus 7 commercials, the company notorious for lackluster advertising hit it out of the park. Both their “Camping” and “Curious” commercials featured heartwarming stories that put Nexus 7 right in the middle of the action. Today’s yet-to-be officially revealed “Aquarium” commercial (it’s set to private on the Google Nexus YouTube account) takes a step away from family time, and takes aim at the artsy Wes Anderson crowd.
There’s not a whole lot we can say that the video doesn’t say for itself. A group of 20-somethings use the Nexus 7 to research everything they need to know on deep sea exploring. From watching Life Aquatic, to looking at pictures of old diving helmets, to reading Scuba Diving magazine, it all culminates in a full-day adventure to create a life-sized, aquarium-themed art project on a city rooftop.
If nothing else, the commercial is creative. We just want to know who has the time to do these kinds of things. Check out the commercial, provided by YouTube user Alex Reviewer, below.
