Just Curious

Why is it that in the Palm Pre commercials they're using this chick:



who very creepily looks like one of the Precogs in the movie Minority Report?



Also, who thought it was a good idea?

Oddly enough, they asked the same question on AotS when the commercials started playing. Despite the fact that she's so creepy, or maybe because of it, I find the commercials oddly compelling. Not compelling in the sense that I have to buy a Pre now, but in the sense that I can't not watch it.

AotS take on Palm Pre Chick Their parody is in there somewhere, too.

I understand what you mean. I think the creepiest one is the one in which she just randomly turns her back to the camera and starts saying, "Bing...Bing...Bing" as she flips through stuff on the phone. It's the combination of being a near-albino with the affect of some sort of automaton that really makes it creepy.

Ah yes, the traffic light one. Yeah, she's weird.
