    One of the shorts from a Philips showcase (all worth a watch imo)

    Very fancy. Hated the Philips background, though. Trying to show off that the color/glow changes with the image I guess?

    Also, the box is a unicorn? :O

    well no, they're showing off the first (or one of the first) 21:9 (ie cinema style) TVs. the ambilight is just one of their fancy things now, which I don't particularly like, its distracting :/

    Ah, I see. Yeah, the ambient light is annoying and I like my youtube videos the CORRECT SIZE. >:|

    Ah, I get it. All the shorts have to use the same pieces of dialogue. That's pretty clever actually, and quite cool to see 2 animated children saying the same stuff as a Russian murderer and a Russian robot :p (I'm guessing they are Russian...)

    "Parallel lines"

    ...


    I don't think it's something that should be done too much, especially with the lines and filmmakers they picked, some very strange films were produced, not sure I actually liked any of them. meh only half an hour wasted

    At first I was like "Been there, done that", then I was like "WTF?"
