Commercial Break: Zoe Ball
Bet when you woke up this morning (after having that dream about your old school caretaker and the yoghurt), you didn’t think you’d get to see the world’s largest zoetrope in action did you?
Well just clickity-click-click on the vid below and you will. With AC Milan’s Kaka inside it, showing off his fancy footwork and the skills that made Manchester City offer a bag of tenners the size of a giant whale in exchange for his services.
It’s all part of a new Sony Bravia campaign, launched last night and apparently, ‘The device was the perfect way to demonstrate how Motionflow 200Hz technology present in Sony’s latest Bravia LCD TVs creates super smooth pictures. Motionflow eliminates the jerkiness which sometimes appears on standard TV sets. This is particularly useful when watching sport, for example to give optimum clarity when watching the flight of a football.’
Wow. Now, can someone slowly explain to us what the flip a zoetrope is?
