I saw a TV advert for a "tough" Olympus ? digital camera where a small boy keeps throwing it to a dog that retrieves it after bouncing off rocks and being finally rinsed off under a tap the mum does not notice any damage. Surely this can only encourage kids to do the same to non tough cameras. Perhaps Olympus could be accused of encouraging vanadlism ? Or am I a Victor Meldrew ?
I saw a TV advert for a car flying from rooftop to rooftop. Surely this can only encourage kids to do the same? As we speak six kids have dismantled my car, on the street outside my window, and made it into an ice-skating robot.... Cor! real life eh?
I saw the advert too and didn't think of the encouraging kids to do this thing but did wonder if this camera would really stand up to this sort of abuse. Personally I think it wouldn't but the only people I can think of that could afford to try it would be the likes of some the review sites. Lets face it, no one that buys one of these cameras would deliberatly do anything like this to it.
