When it comes to advertising, Google’s been doing a great job, better than most Android manufacturers we’d say. Relatable, sweet, feature-focused, and snappy, clips like the Camping TV ad for the original Nexus 7 or the Fear Less spot for the second generation have contributed to the growth of the Nexus range from a niche device to a formidable crowd-pleaser.

Here are two more great Nexus 7 TV ads that you might begin to see over the following weeks. Google highlights the simplicity and convenience of consuming media and apps on a tablet, be it a Shakespeare play or a frantic shoot-em up game.

Speaking of ads, Black Friday, the crazy start of the holiday shopping season is just around the corner. Expect a big marketing push from small and big players alike. Looking forward to anything in particular?

    Google is firing on all cylinders.

  • jlninja

    This was obviously written by a fanboy. Arent ads supposed to highlight why you should buy this product over the competiotion. These are both showing things c ommon to ALL tablets. Useless.

    • Shark Bait

      At least it shows people using them in realish situations unlike some do

      That’s what spec pages and detailed reviews are for. Ads are made for the general public, not for the small group of consumers that understand what it means for a device to have “a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor at 2.3 GHz” or receive “guaranteed OTA firmware updates”. It’s unfortunate, but that’s where it stands.

      Maybe when as many people understand what a Gigahertz is as do an MPG, we can expect more informative advertisement.

      Highlighting why you should buy this product over another is only ONE form of advertising. Another form is to be noticed and the Nexus 7 ads do this wonderfully.

      I like them.

    Wow, how can one love ads? Ads are made to get you to spend money on stuff you dont want to spend money on. If Ads are well made, okay, but there’s no real need to Advertise Advertisement imo.

  • Billy Royle

    these ads aren’t GREAT…boring and mediocre at best….would you be willing to ever admit it?

    • Accophox

      So, what would you consider a good ad? Lists of specifications (If Microsoft designed the ipod packaging)? Highlighting it’s made in… Taiwan/China (Apple’s designed in Cupertino/Made in USA campaign)? How do you show that the display is *really good* on another display, which may not be so good? Would you have people dancing around like idiots (Surface)?

      These may not be *great* ads, but they’re “human” and grounded in reality – they showcase things that real people may be doing with this device. And it showcases them as being social and fun to use.

    Too bad people are going to look at these and be like… oh look at the new iPad… lol just because the ads are very similar to the way apple makes theirs

    • Mike Kister

      Those people are probably better off buying an ipad.

  • steve blow jobs
