Although most of our time is spent hunkered down in the labs running benchmarks, taking and editing pictures, compiling data, working on page layouts, and of course writing, on occasion some of us actually get to go out into the real world and interact with people. I know. It’s crazy. But it does happen.

Fortunately for us, our fearless leader Dave spent some time with the folks at Samsung on one of his jaunts outside the lab. And wouldn’t ya know it, they ended up shooting a commercial...


Yup, that’s HotHardware’s own Dave Altavilla demoing the Explore 3D feature, available on Samsung’s newer 3D TVs. For a first-timer, I think Dave did a bang-up job. Heck, he even got the guy on the couch to get up rock out with some air-guitar action! Watch out ShamWow Guy--Dave's coming for you!

What do you all think? How’d Dave do in his commercial debut?

I still don't like looking at 3D.

Haha! I have a "face and a voice made for radio" as they say! LOL..  I thought the script was a tad corny to be honest. Don't want to knock the script writer but we could have demo'ed that set a bit more naturally, sans air guitar. Cool

No shenanigans!  Those years of training your voice in student radio and authoritative yet not smug confidence in front of the mic/camera with 2.5 Geeks could be about to pay off.  I think at the very least you'll be hearing from the big-money voice over people:  Political season is now and there are big bucks for someone who can sound like a manlier Matt Damon and get us to buy/vote/act now!  "We need that voice! Get Dave!"

Remember the little people! Big Smile

 

Euonia, you are too kind.  I sure hope so! And you bet your crazy-ass I'll remember all our HH Fam!  We'll do it LIVE! LOL

This is pretty fantastic.

Not sure I liked the dude at the beginning though, before you corrected his noob ass though, Dave. His line seemed a bit.. flat. Though, saying that, his line wasn't exactly Oscar material!
