Google is hoping the power of Kevin Bacon will bring to some sizzle to the so far moribund Google TV sales. Oh, and throw in the hardware of Silicon Valley Logitech for good measure.
Below is a one-minute commercial that is getting thousands of clips an hour on YouTube. Bacon plays a character obsessed with Kevin Bacon and shows how the power of Google TV helps him zone in on that obsession.
Will it cause anyone to purchase the Google product? Who knows?
