What the hell?

Here's a quote from a Playstation 3 promotional site...

'Playstation 3 is a console that screams digital carpe diem and will redefine reality as you know it'

What, in the name of all that is sane, are they talking about! Do marketing people just link random words together to write this crap? (No offence, Boo!)

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go and try to get my runny, melted brain back into my head with a mop and a funnel.

I think (as one of those evil marketing people), they're trying to suggest that it's... *ahem* bloody good.

Thank god I don't work with that sort of situation. Mine's more genteel. ;-)

Yours was more genteel until you turned up...

I think, the answer to your question would be a solidified yes :)

I think they are trying to dazzle you with big words, "Wow I don't know what that means but it must be good".

Well, it didn't work - I just thought 'pretentious pillocks'...

Well, I had a sales guy come in and do a talk with us once, he said it's all about alliteration and stuff. I just nodded my head.

Yep, nod, smile and back away. That's all you can do, Thunder. :)

Indeed. You'll get plenty of practice with with the nodding and backing away when you're dealing with these folks here, Thunder. . .

And I suppose that marketing people are all just nuts. Especially the ones who deal with art-related stuff. ;)
