I always loved the original Bravia TV advert with the multi-coloured rubber balls heralding the era of high-definition video to the strains of Jose Gonzalez covering The Knife’s “Heartbeats”. I just thought it was one of the first adverts that really got the idea of high-definition and if you saw the ad on a high-def TV, you would understand why I was enthused about it.

Now we have 3D television and Sony have just issued a spin (geddit?) on the original Bravia advert. OK, this time around the balls are CG, but this is a localised advert with a tiny budget compared to the original international advert and his inherent large pot of cash behind it.

And here’s the original Bravia advert to remind you of how good the original was.

That’s an awful lot of balls…
