Way OT: Beats World Cup commercial

For the soccer fans on the board, Beats (yes the headphones folks) released a World Cup ad today (link). It features a bunch of World Cup players and a ton of famous cameos too. It's very impressive! 

The Nike ad from couple months ago is pretty awesome too if you haven't seen that. (link)

Crazy how average headphones can turn into something so major. Great marketing - just like the NFL playoffs. No wonder Dr. Dre is about to be a billionaire.

Definitely marketing genius with Beats.  I have been involved in music production for the last 15 years, and I have to say that the Beats headphones are the biggest waste of money ever.  $300 for headphones?  You have to be a marketing genius to sell that.  They have nice sound, and look kind of cool, but my $80 bose headphones from 2003 still sound better than those. 

This commercial was good though.

Well I have 3 different pairs of beats an none cost me $300. I got two pairs for $79 each (was a half off Black Friday deal on eBay) and I got a pair of the wireless beats that ran me $250. I have had troubles with other wireless headphones at my workplace (factory so tons of interference) but these things work amazingly.
