Does Gaming Turn You On?


Maybe not after you get a gander of this.

Check out this bizarro ad for the Playstation 3 created in Vienna, Austria for the European market.

I can't say it's what anyone wants to see down there but if the ad is real (and there's debate on gaming and gadget sites as to whether it is or not) no doubt it will push a few buttons.

And, it's probably NSFW...

Check it out here...

  4. Are you sure that wasn't for the asian market?

  5. Great body - too bad they didnt let us see the unphotoshopped version. Don't get me wrong, I love hot guys showing skin in any kind of advertising, but I don't really understand the message of this one. I mean I get it that his dick is a thumb and all, but, huh?

  6. DRH: if it was for the Asian market the pubes would be straight (trust me, I've been stabbed in the eye enough times to know that Asian men have straight pubes).

    BTW, you're going right to hell for that one.

  7. Real or not, this is baffling and bizarre. And gross.

  8. straight? maybe ....
    But you know how it goes, technology is big in Asia. Umm should I rephrase that? lol

  10. Chad - The message here is "Your thumb will rule your world" just as your penis does, most of the time anyways :)

  11. Chad... the call to action says play forever... meaning sex too. the thumb will rule your world... i like that.

  12. I think it might be symbolic in that the more time you spend in your parents' basement on your Playstation 3, the more chance that the single most-important appendage in your life is not going to be your dick anymore.

  14. I would say the only thing that looks real in that picture is the penis.

  16. Re: racist comments here.

    And you clamor for equality when you, yourself, are full of prejudice and totally ignorant.

    Hell no, gay marriage my ass...

  17. Gaming may or may not turn me on, but those abs do!

  18. I get it, but


    And D.R.H...that stereotype is the lamest in the book...and totally wrong.

  19. Proves that with each new version of technology they can put more bits on a smaller chip.

  20. DRH: F-k u racist.

    Posted by: Landis | May 13, 2008 11:21:50 PM

  21. That's pretty hot. I love when they take a beautiful man and alter him so he's not so perfect.

    Posted by: Matty | May 14, 2008 1:41:41 AM

  22. 1. DRH - Myth and stereotype? get over it mister!!

    2. The message behind it: A guy who loves playing playstation so much that even his penis is as good as his thumb.

  24. I think it's a beautiful dick that I would welcome anytime! So what if it curves up at the end? Don't understand the whole dumb thumb idea!

  25. Sony has already denied that this is an actual Europe or anywhere else. It was just a mock up from an over zealous ad agency.
