Philips Ambilight Screen Paints Football Fan Faces For World Cup

Philips has linked up with the FIFA World Football Cup with ‘Fan Faces’, a television advertisement promoting the Ambilight HD flat TV. The TV ad celebrates the technology used to enhance the colour in HD broadcast of the World Cup games onto Ambilight flat screens in media centers and stadiums. A woman appears on a Philips flat television, with ‘Ambilight’ off. As Ambilight is turned on her face is painted with red, white, yellow and green. Colours change to the sounds of a football crowd and thundering drums, providing an interaction with various national flags. The voiceover: “Game On with the Philips Flat TV with Ambilight”. The tagline: “Philips: Sense and Simplicity”.
