In case you haven’t heard, two commercials will air in 3-D during the Super Bowl – a 90 second trailer for DreamWorks’ Monsters vs. Aliens movie and 30 second spot for Pepsi’s SoBe Lifewater. Additionally, Monday’s episode of Chuck will air in 3-D on NBC.
As you might guess, you’ll need a special pair of glasses to catch all the 3-D glory; the free glasses should be available at SoBe displays at Safeway, Vons, K-Mart, Ralphs, Kroger, A&P, Frys, Supervalu, Food Lion, Pathmark, Coburn, Fairway, Fresh Brands, Hy Vee, Nash Finch, Dollar General and Winn Dixie (Target and Meijer are scheduled to put them out on Saturday). And oh yeah – the lenses are purple and amber in color, so if you happen to have a pair of the old red and blue glasses lying around, you’re outta luck.
So anyway, I got several pairs of the glasses today, as did Robert Seidman of tvbythenumbers.com. Robert wondered if there were any demos or anything online that would let him preview the 3-D effect. He went to the website of the company behind the new technology and managed to find this gallery of demo photos. There are around 35 pictures in the demo gallery, and Robert’s favorite was of some fighter jets. Mine was, of course, this picture (yes you’ll need the glasses to see this in 3-D):
Yes, friends… boobs in 3-D! What a time to be alive!
Actually, you know that was probably the first picture they took in 3-D, right?
