It seems like every time I turn on the television, that crazy Ashton Kutcher commercial for Nikon is on. Now, truth be told, I don’t even like the boy. Granted, he has a beautiful wife and seems to be a great stepfather, but what on earth makes people think that his personal life combined with a dubious acting career makes him the prime pitch person for Nikon cameras?
Yet I can’t help it, I want one.
I’ve been looking at digital SLR cameras for awhile, now, and after decades of my Pentax and loving my point and shoot digital, I have to admit that Nikon was one of the two that I was looking at. And darned if his commercial doesn’t make me want it more.
So while I would normally say that advertising on TV doesn’t have any bearing on my choices (usually because I am fast forwarding through them all) I guess, in this case, it actually worked!
