Intel's First Cinematic and Epic Ultrabook Ad: Desperado

Earlier this week we warned you about the incoming "cinematic and epic" marketing push of Intel for its ultrabooks.

The first one out the gate is "Desperado," directed by Daniel Kleinman, a British TV commercial and music video director who also helmed the title sequence for several James Bond movies.

Maybe nothing will ever capture the same whimsy as the old Intel Bunny People, but check out Desperado below and let us know what you think:

    Upon visiting the Youtube page of said video I was greeted with this link as the then-top comment depicting the Japanese ultrabook commercial.

    My vocabulary was not sufficiently large for me to adequately express my reaction in words.

    What the heck is that?

    I am so confused...

    In terms of advertising genius, it must be brilliant, because I can't get the image of two people in tinfoil and a dancing lunatic with a tiger mask in space with the state of liberty in the background out of my brain.

    oh, and the desperado ad sucked. Gave me no idea what an ultra book is. It is a laptop? a UMPC? a crappy little netbook? What can it do? Who is the product aimed at? Are they saying that hicks don't know how to use computers? Or is it a commentary on poor rural america not being able to afford new machines?

    At best it is dumb, at worst it is just insulting to some people. Either way, the tiger moon commercial was much more effective at making some sort of impact...
