UPDATE 8/28/10: Engadget has scrounged up a copy of the video, which you can check out here.
Well, it seems that all the bad press received from ‘Lonely TV’ part 3 has caused Logitech to delete the ad from their YouTube channel all together. Once the video began circulating the blog circuit, dozens of articles and countless tweets began springing up, most of which carried a very negative critique of the ad.
For those of you who missed it, the spot featured a tweenage girl video chatting with her friend, only to be ambushed by the family’s attention seeking TV, complete with human legs and a giant eyeball in desperate need of some Visine. A screaming match ensued, and then the TV takes off running down the hall, back to the twisted nether from which it came.
The move is certainly not all that surprising, and definitely makes a case for the power of online opinions. We are working hard to track down a copy of the spot, but unless someone happened to rip the original YouTube video, this one may have to live on in our memories… or rather, our nightmares.
