Goose and fuzzball try to sell the PSP

Psp Sony’s newest PSP ad confuses me. I’m not sure how a goose and something that looks like Meatwad dipped in hair restoration gel, or any of the gibberish that passes between them, relates to videogames. What I am sure of is that this is more “random for the sake of it” advertising. It’s bad enough that unchecked absurdism has ruined modern cartoons. Seeing it seep into things I actually enjoy is too much. Can we return to timeless, comprehensible elegance, like this? Or better yet, let’s start advertising that pornography. If I have to endure 30-second word-salad spots for the next few years, I might as well get some graphic nudity for my trouble.
