Sony has released a football-themed television commercial for 3D TV, featuring 2D doubled versions of Kaka. The ad was launched on television in Europe during the final of the Champions League in Madrid, along with an outdoor projection in Plaza Santa Ana, Madrid. A fully-functioning 3D version will be broadcast in cinemas across Europe prior to screenings of 3D films throughout the summer. “Please do not adjust your set… This is 3D TV… Maybe it’s time to get a 3D TV.”

Shot in 3D yet airing on standard TV stations for the World Cup, the ad will appear to be transmitting incorrectly on a standard 2D set. The left and right eye images will play intentionally out of line to get people wondering what it will look like in stunning Full HD 3D on a BRAVIA TV, with the endline ‘Maybe its time to get a 3D TV’. This dream then becomes a reality in June, when Sony’s 3D products will appear in stores across Europe in time for the start of the FIFA World Cup, and a host of 3D content (including the full glory of the Kaka spot in full 3D) will be available to view in store and in cinema.
