I totally agree with you, @Photon. When I saw these pictures of halfshaved person, the first thought was - is it she or he? I cannot see anything in these pictures and videos while my attention stuck on this person’s body that totally destroys creativity. You know our body is talking in every move, in every picture. Our body is true art of God. But sometimes someone wants to blow up their business and they use any method that destroys your comfort zone let you put your attention on them.
And like Photon I will buy upgrades every year anyway. Is this halfshaved ugly advert for those who claim to crossgrade from Pro Tools? Do you really think they will make a decission after this ugly advert?
Take a look on Spitfire Audio videos! There is one (not only one) beautiful girl called Homay. These (not only these) videos inspires a lot.
Better results would be if there in adverts play their role someone like Hans Zimmer, Tom Holkenborg (Junkie-XL) and other good public people, who use Cubase. So are they too expensive for this kind of adverts?
