VIDEO: Intel Engineers Shot Out of Cannons

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 28 comments

Big badda-boom!

I liked Intel's commercials about their rockstars being different to our rockstars or their big ideas not being like our big ideas. There were quirky but also kind of cool, which I guess was sort of the point. Today the company adds another neat clip to their video library. This one has cannons!

All Things Digital this week carries a video of five Intel engineers (or actors hired to act as Intel engineers) in Finland being shot from a cannon. The brave Intel rocketeers are being fired at an arrangement of bells. Why? To try and recreate the famous "Intel Inside" chime!

Before you get too excited, yes, the entire thing is fake and a part of Intel's Sponsors of Tomorrow campaign. But don't let that put you off. Check out the video below and let us know what you think!

    Maybe the FTC should figure out who are the people in Intel responsible for paying off PC makers to not sell AMD and have them shot out of cannons - for real.

    The guy introducing this must be a norwegian (or at least he must have grown up there). Anybody who lives in Norway or Sweden can spot that a million miles away, that he has a norwegian accent....
    So for me that spoilt the thing even before it began!
