Playstation Nature Documentaries

Sony is promoting Life on Playstation in a television advertising campaign spoofing the British nature documentary genre, with three ads shot on a South African game reserve, several hours south of Johannesburg. A group of predatory porn stars tracks down a migrating herd of golfers as they attempt to cross a river. A group of athletes falls prey to well-organised ventriloquists. A market trader, separated from his group, is dramatically warned off by a territorial racing car pit-crew.
