Sony starts GoogleTV ad campaign

October 16, 2010: 2:32 PM ET

Sony Internet TVs with GoogleTV go on sale this weekend, with a new commercials to along with it.

Sony's (SNE) devices are in stock at Best Buys (BBY) and Sony Experience stores already.   Logitech's (LOGI) devices are available to purchase now but won't ship for a couple more weeks.

The ad to me is a fun song with some good content but I don't think GoogleTV translates well into the huge crowd scene.  If anything, GoogleTV (GOOG) is more about personal choices and finding more obscure content vs. mainstream content you find on traditional cable TV.

Mishka makes a cameo though, so it's still a winner in my book.
