Lucky Tube Seats - CCTV style ads for Nokia N-Gage

Nokia N-Gage have filmed a series of six "undercover" CCTV style videos on the London Underground to promote their N-Gage next generation mobile gaming service. The videos capture "the bemused reactions of passengers witnessing a man so engrossed in his game that he does anything in order to avoid any disruption to his match."

There's one of a guy in his bathrobe on the Tube playing the game as well, which is below. However, I found that one a bit lame and way too overacted, but maybe that's just me.

Anyway the videos aim to get people to visit
www.n-gage.com/fifa08. There are four other simliar Tube filmed videos there. Plus if you're in the UK you've got till the end of August to get a free FIFA 08 license if you have a compatible Nokia device (N95, N95 8gb, N81, N81 8gb, N82). You can also download N-Gage from there.

I don't do gaming so it'd be wasted on me, but some of you may want to download it.

Thumbs up to the first ad though, the mildly curious, but not really interested look on the guy that gives up his seat is a fairly typical Tube reaction. Mainly he just wants to get back to sleep & be left alone in peace.
