Logitech Revue ads paint TVs as lonely, creepy

Logitech has recently started up an unusual set of video teasers (below) for its Google TV box, the Revue. The promo spots portray the TV as a "lonely" personified set but have it appear out of nowhere, scaring teenage girls and otherwise creating chaos. The ads don't provide more details but do promise the Revue will launch in the fall.

The company is poised to be the largest designer of stand-alone Google TV hardware when the platform ships and could affect sales depending on the level of attention it gets. Outside of Logitech, the main hardware contributor is a future Sony Bravia TV line that would build the Android-based platform into the set itself. Apart from providing the apps, search and web from Google TV, the Revue will also let an Android or iPhone device work as a Harmony remote and should serve as a gateway for media on the local network.
