The upcoming 3D phone from LG, Optimus 3D, may be cool, with its glasses-free 3D and a dual-core CPU, but it certainly didn't stop the company from producing one of the cheesiest/worst commercials we've ever seen.

The premise is decent - a girl is doing yoga, and her 3D-capable phone provides her with 3D training videos, but the execution... well, you decide, because I'm out of words:

    I realize LG is Korean, but they are really channeling some Japanese weirdness here. Nevertheless, I found myself needing to watch the video again -- so maybe they are engaging in that old marketing tactic of engaging certain areas of the subconscious...

    Well she's epically cute so all's forgiven. Will buy the phone.

    Umm... so that's not really how 3d works on displays. You can't rotate the display and 'see the other side' of an object.

    I find it funny how everyone is going gaga over 3d technology on phones when it is far from being perfected. Even james cameron has stated that we are getting carried away with the use of 3d and actually dumming down video quality. Avatar was great but it cost a a butt load of money to develop the software that was used to make the movie. How many companies are not going to invest the money in software to develop a quality 3d experience. Bottom line the hardware if cheaper to develop than the software so 3d on my phone is not worth it.

    Although she's cute, you're right, very cheesy. How can this commercial be about the same product as this one:

    It's the same company, same product, but two completely different types of commercials.

      Well, technically Optimus 3D is a 4+" phone while Optimus Pad is a tablet, but yeah, definitely - night and day.

    There is no telling how much this phone is going to cost looking at some of the recent phone prices like the HTC Thunderbolt at $750!

  • James

    I hate 3D. Makes me dizzy... :(

  • bros

    oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Is this serious? I hate LG! This is the worst commercial I have ever seen!

  • Vivec

    Now if I buy this phone, everyone will compare me to that foolish girl who couldn't figure out how to do Yoga. lol

    The worst commertial ever.
