Does anyone know the song title and artist used on the Sony Bravia advert?

And I saw Jose Gonzalez live at a festival last year, before he was uber famous and stuff :) I have pictures to prove it too, oh yes.

Strangely, he's Sweedish even though he sounds Mexican or Spanish.

Check back later for even more uninteresting rubbish :laugh:

Funny this.

Me and the missus were talking about ths advert.

We reckon its a setup. We reckon its all CG effects and even the "Making Of" is a setup. In that GoogleEarth shot, arent the balls in that shot absolutely HUGE, must be siz of beach balls from the height the shot is aken from. i would have thought the shot would just be a mess of colour.

Either way, its making us talk about it.
Shame they arent getting brilliant reviews.

Its definitely been mucked around with . Closeup balls are either cg or actual filmed effects elements that have been composited . Its very obvious.

Reminds me of the honda "cog" adverts, again makers claimed it was shot for real ....not bothering to mention the several weeks of inferno work carried out on it by The Mill.

I'm sure that I heard that the ad used 250k real balls...! I will do a search on google now...

found this link - http://www.bravia-advert.com/

and they quote -
"Sending 250,000 multi-coloured 'superballs' bouncing down the streets of San Francisco may seem the strangest way to do this, but that's exactly what Danish director Nicolai Fuglsig did for the BRAVIA commercial in July this year. San Franciscans have seen some unusual things in their time, but even this gave them something to talk about. And we've got the feeling that this commercial is going to do exactly the same thing"

but it's not exactly an independent opinion tho...

I'm sure it did but what they shot has subsequently been mucked around with and augmented to make it work.
