Hilarious Pentax canada advertising - Have you seen it?

Just thought Iīd share this one, I havenīt seen it posted before:


I guess it is weird they decided to use a hose because it is quite high pressure.. Although the flow seems like dew. Very little drops (donīt know the term in english)

EDIT: Maybe they felt inspired by @Heieīs video??

Hah, it's a funny - even if ever so embarrassing - video.

I mean, a grown man, publicly admitting "thank you for your attention to details, I am aware that I don't actually drink coffee" surely isn't a photographer

Your kidding, right? I`ve seen too many vids where this goes wrong due to the use of a pressurized hose.

Notice how the original hosing off was a very light stream of water, then he shows the camera working, then they blast off the little sand grain with full pressure.

Remember to take the lens off before putting it into the dishwasher, to keep the sensor nice and clean too

So, wait--since when does Pentax advertise? Really, how gauche! I guess it's ok if it's just in Canada but it threatens the Pentax geek-niche appeal.

Three actors, a director (maybe), a cinematographer, a sound person (maybe), somebody's back yard, a K-01, and a K-30. Shoestring budget. Highly effective. Kudos to Pentax Canada.

Pentax USA should have bought the rights to show this in the U.S.!!!

Not as convincing as the original that inspired this pale imitation. Heie should be on Pentax's payroll.
