Mountain Ejaculates Billions of Rose Petals Onto Unsuspecting Ghost Town for Sony

You may have thought the word “ejaculate” was a little strong for this spot for the Sony Bravia from McCann London. Then you watched the spot and realized, “Nope, that’s what actually happens. A mountain or volcano or something blows its flowery wad all over a city.” See? I wasn’t being hyperbolic.

Now, as I’m a bit of an urban, indoor being, I honestly can’t tell you if what I’m seeing occur in this spot possibly happens in real life. I would assume it doesn’t, as a mountainside town taking a big old rose-y facial would seem to be a newsworthy story. But, now I notice McCann London sent a three-minute behind-the-scenes video along with this spot, so I’ve embedded it below.

Huh, looks like they spent a lot of money getting that volcano to blow its 8-million petal load. If you buy an expensive new Sony 4k TV, it will all be worth it. Credits after the jump.
