Out of tune ad ballad draws few fans

Well, Research in Motion ... er BlackBerry, Ltd. (TSE:BB) finally pushed its QNX based BlackBerry 10 platform out the door.  It's celebrating by releasing another interesting YouTube video (Is it an ad? We don't know!). 

Some are questioning BlackBerry's judgement in continuing to post such strange advertising pitches to its developers account.  One user "Tron5500" writes, "Come on blackberry ! Your scaring away all your potential customers..."

And Calum Redhead writes, "Is this a joke?"

Another user types "awkward", while another commenter quips, "wow this is just absolutely horrible. i want those 3min of my life back."

The song lyrics are as follows:

At last my love / has come along / our lonely days are over / now for one last little song / At last / All the promise has come true / Your games and apps / Are in the storefront / On our new platform / Built for you / At last / Two new devices good to go / Complete with legendary keyboards / Blackberry Balance Hub and Flow / At last / A new beginning a new start / This is gonna be a blast / Blackberry 10 at last.

... just in case you BlackBerry fans want to do a cover or something.

At least they haven't said they're bigger than Jesus yet. Which is ironic since Apple has so much in common with religious belief.

I don't know...Progressive's ads have always been pretty bad.

I can watch progressive commercials. I turned the above video off at 35 seconds when the guy starts to sing because I cringed so bad I nearly slid off my chair.

Don’t blame us, we don’t know any better. Compared to most of the “Canadian content” our media industry pumps out, this is fantastic. You guys might not like it, but it will be a runaway hit here at home.
