That's genius!! 7 min ad break shortened to a few seconds thanks to a few brand names. Would love to see that.

Sony idea: Force the consumer to interact with an ad.

Expected result: the consumer interacts with the ad.

Actual Result: The consumer throws the TV to the garbage (or sells it, whatever)

Actual result 2: The consumer buys a pirated no-ads version of the TV show.

Actual result 3: :blobidea: The consumer gets a hacker to fix his TV.

ENLIGHTENED RESULT: :thinking_very_hard: The consumer buys a projector that fools the TV into believing he interacted with the ad.
