Is it a TV? Or is it a Bed?

Being The Cable Show, there were plenty of booth stunts at last week’s event in New Orleans. Among them was FOX’s display of beds (yes, mattresses) with large-screen TV projections. See the video above for a quick look. It was shot by a partner in crime (Thanks, Amy!), and that is me you see taking photos in the clip.

  1. Is there an actual, practical application for this? I can’t think of one.

  2. Kid: the tv is all crumbled looking!
    Mom: Well if you want a clear picture you will go make your bed.

  3. Only one practical purpose, which is why I added the “Advertising” category to Mari’s post. Would have been a more amusing video if Mari got onto the bed and became the screen. That’s what I’d have done. :D

  4. What if they used it to show bed commercials…for the bed they’re showing it on? Or did I just blow your mind?

  5. @RandomRage No practical application at all. Pure silliness. But it was a good complement to the girls posing in a large martini glass further down the show floor. Sadly I didn’t get a pic of that. :(

  6. This is asking for nightmares!

  8. Well… I guess we’re almost there. Where advertisers will toss ads out at us while we’re asleep. Now you can sleep on your favorite show + commercials… :)

    An interesting way of advertising. I’d be curious if people spent a lot of time looking down at these. Interesting find. Thanks for sharing.
