I wish they showed the fall back to earth, since that's the most interesting part. But still cool.

well - here is an art piece that might have potentially been an inspiration:

it is not a red chair - no hd cameras were used - but the soundtrack is pretty similar

one should not take life so seriously - as one will not come out of it alive.

The problem I have w/ this is they didn't use the actual cameras they sell. Other than that, it's really cool.

It is a method i agree to take ideas out of the world and to put them in advertising, every body does it... W + K they did it quite a lot of times (Honda Cog), but the diference with htis case is that u take a cover story, truly succsesfull cover story of 2 MIT students...
and not to mention the existance of this video , http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wnyp3Nrp0w ..

why for the sake of god if someone placed a chair in the space u wanna do it for the second time ?.

So , ur job was connecting Toshiba with theese existing stories that u admire???

Maybe if ur idea was to put this on cannes , maybe u should have kept it in the shelf just right before the festival where nobody will have time to find anything and the hands of the jurry willl be enough confused to push green for this rip...:)
sorry.

What is the marketing point? Armchair viewing is a message to the canera buyer's audience.. Why not to the potential buyer with a message like captures footage you never could before. (A better line than that, but you get my point) Or does "Armchair "mean something to Brits that it doesn't to this retired Yank agency CD?.
