Canon China Makes Batman Spokesperson in Awesomely Bad Ad


Canon has chosen some interesting spokespeople over the past couple of years–Avril Lavigne, Maria Sharapova, etc. And now, it seems like they’re turning to the Dark Knight for their IXUS digital camera ads. In America, we call these the ELPH series of cameras. The commercial after the jump is pretty hysterical as it takes scenes from the Dark Knight series of movies and then has the point and shoot come out of Batman’s belt to take some images perhaps clearly taken with a DSLR instead. Even funnier: some of the images are of NYC–therefore proving that Gotham is actually based on the Big Apple.

Take a look at the video after the jump, and then laugh.
