We’ve seen some pretty interesting product adverts this year, but this ad from Nokia UK is going to be memorable for all the wrong reasons.
Made by Nokia UK to promote the Lumia 2520 tablet, the ad depicts a man in a barbershop trying to decide what haircut he should get. What makes the ad particularly creepy is the barber himself, who seems to be channeling Sweeney Todd as he advises our misguided guest on which haircut he should choose. His equally disturbing-looking assistant then unveils the Lumia 2520 tablet, and as our friend uses it, his hair is magically cut – or rather grows into a mullet.
If Nokia wanted to create a buzz around their product, they’ve certainly achieved it – this one takes the hall of fame as the most peculiar ad of 2013 in my books.
