Swiss Broadcasting Corporation Launches Ad for iPad App, Sneaks in Andy


SwitzerlandFlagThe Swiss Broadcasting Corporation just launched an iPad application that highlights various articles, photos and videos. To help get the ball rolling, they created an advertisement. The ad details the story of William Tell and the famous shooting of an Apple off of his son’s head. What we are all treated to is a quick shot of Andy brandishing a sword around the 39 second mark.

Did ya see him? Frankly, I’m going with the conspiracy theory that this was only done to garner free publicity on Android sites, it worked.
