A few weeks back, when Sony dropped the price of the PS3 to $299, they started airing the following ad to promote the new deal:
But now that this has been running for a few weeks, it seems that Nigeria is Mad at Sony and wants them to withdraw the ad. The country also “demands an unconditional apology from Sony Corporation for this deliberate negative campaign against the country’s image and reputation,” said a spokesman for the Nigerian government.
In addition to demanding an apology, Nigeria offered to transfer the amount of $200 million USD to Sony if they would just provide them with all their banking information.
Oh and by the way, if any Nigerian officials are currently reading this, please don’t take the previous paragraph too seriously. After all, life would be pretty boring without a little bit of humor, wouldn’t it?
