Was a group of Japanese robotic businessmen the only thing the Dell Streak needed to successfully quash the iPad? A bizarre “Dell Streak Man Project” advert has turned up for the Japanese market, in what we’re guessing is meant to imply that the Streak hybrid smartphone/tablet helps organize you into an efficient android machine.
Along the way, though, it comes across more than a little like those impromptu dances sometimes held in the middle of shopping centers, complete with bemused onlookers watching from the sidelines. As you can see at one point, too, the Streak itself isn’t actually turned on.
Still, it’s memorably – albeit in an odd way – and that’s generally a good thing in adverts. Airing in Japan this month, we’ll have to wait and see what, if anything, it does for sales of the Streak there.
