The company's new humorous ad lampoons the curved-screen display trend.
Are you tired of distorted curved-screen TVs? Well, VIZIO just might have the perfect solution! In a playful new mock commercial, the company is advertising the release of their revolutionary (and completely made up) "Anti-Curved Glasses." As demonstrated in the helpful video below, the glasses are aimed at turning pesky curved-screen pictures into good old fashioned flat-screen images.
While the jury is still out on the benefits and potential popularity of curved-screen sets, based on their snarky video, VIZIO's opinion on the matter seems to be clear. Unlike other major manufacturers like Sony and Samsung, VIZIO has yet to release any curved-screen panels and appears to view the design as a simple gimmick. The company's new P-Series Ultra HD TVs are now available -- completely sans curves of course. The flat-screen lineup includes the 50" P502ui-B1 ($900), the 55" P552ui-B2 ($1,348), the 60" P602ui-B3 ($1,648), the 65" P652ui-B2 ($2,199), and the flagship 70" P702ui-B3 ($2,499). And best of all, no anti-curved glasses are required!
