In recent times, Sony have dropped 250,000 super balls down a San Francisco street, exploded 17,000 liters of paint in Glasgow, and most recently used two and half tons of Play Doh to have bunnies invade a New York City square. The series of ads created to showcase the colour abilities of Sony’s Digital products have become an iconic movement within advertising and are recognisable amongst almost anyone. The latest campaign moves to Miami where several blocks were filled with Foam.
Info from Josh Spear.
The idea behind the Foam City ad campaign is that bubbles are beautiful, but it’s extremely hard to capture that beauty in an image. However, since the latest in Sony’s digital imaging arsenal, including the new Alpha 350 with tilt screen, CybershotW175 with smile shutter, and HD Handycam, specialize in ‘capturing images like no other’ we can finally see bubbles the way they’re meant to be seen or in a larger sense any truly unique moment. How’s 200 locals wading around a city block covered in foam taking pictures with the latest Sony gear for a unique moment?
In addition to the 80,000 plus feet of film shot for the campaign, the commercials will also feature images shot by those wandering through the sea of suds, as well as the documentary filmmaker on hand. We know you can’t wait to see the finished product, neither can we. However, we’re all going to have to wait until the staggered release of the various incarnations of the ad, set to debut in the Spring and Early Summer. Until then, you’ll just have to be satisfied with the images we snapped while on the shoot.
