They could have found a less dopey looking actor, but it is nicely done.
I think he's on three European K-5 press kit photos too

Doesn't look look like he would prefer a pink version. Maybe stealth olive?

US marketing and preview videos are a joke.
Agreed. Even the "Snuggie" gets far more advertising done for it than anything Pentax-related here in the U.S.

I liked the commercial. I wonder if it was yet another marketing blunder or left out intentionally that there were no LED indicators!!! I joke. My only other beef with the video is the way he left the camera on the edge with the strap hanging off the ledge. By a show of hands, how many people have (or almost) seen their camera get knocked off a counter when carelessly leaving their camera like that?

I think it is the protruding forehead and the Belladonna teeth that make me think this guy is an uggo.

That's what I want to know too. Based on the short DOF it seems that it was not shot with a "normal" DV cam, but on a DSLR. The maximum resolution on Youtube is 720P so it could have been filmed with a K-r. I hope the K-5 gets a ncie video too, this time at 1080p.

I was suprised that the add was in german, but never seen it on TV, well maybe german TV is just to expensive

Pentax should run the add in german documentaries, would be more usefull then in Talkshows
and last but not least, the guy should at least smile a little bit, so it looks like he want to smash the camera in pieces

Stealth Olive would be very preferred by this guy,but liked the beige/sandy colored K-x on PK, Desert camouflage

It's cool.
All good for Pentax.
When the K-5 ad comes out, then perhaps we'll see more of the WR stuff come into play...

I can't believe this is a Pentax advertisement ..very nicely done. They should do one for the K-5 too.

Yeah. They should show the same guy doing photography in rain, snow, desert, clear weather, and in the studio with the K-5, grip, and maybe a DA* 60-250mm (or a different lens each scene). That would be an awesome commercial.

yes, exactly. They should show the Pentax strong points in a non intrusive way like this. It could bring far more attention to them then stupidities like this.
