No Flash? Use a Flamethrower Instead

To promote its new Xperia phones, Sony hosted a three-day hackathon on a boat to see what creative innovations people could come up with. One of the hackers decided to make a flamethrower-style flash (seen at 2:26), triggering a gas flame to flare whenever a photograph is taken with the phone. Maybe this’ll start a fire-lighting trend in professional photo studios…

    In case you didn’t know, ads are meant to entice people to buy, through whatever means necessary—which never equates to telling the truth. In fact, ads aren’t about the product itself—they suggest happiness, adventure, sex, youth, etc.—this ad could have been used for jeans or even sunglasses.
