    Just caught Jimmy Fallon tonight and he did a cool "ad" for the touchpad. He wore a half mustache and alternated between profile views with different voices, voicing the very different needs between two people. What was the solution for both of them you ask? Well, the TouchPad of course! Works like nothing else. It's some pretty good marketing going on here, I'm once again very hopeful for webOS. I'll post a video if I find one.

    Here it is. Jimmy just did a free commercial for HP, pretty good endorsement.

    Thanks for the link and I love video advertisement. Actually, I posted a comment simply because I love Jimmy Fallon and the TouchPad, what a great combination! Sorli...

    I think these ads have already beat the pants off of the old creepy girl ads. The presence at Costco is probably a good thing too, although I was bummed it was sealed behind plexiglass so I couldn't play with it when I was there.

    Are you sure it was the TouchPad that was behind the plexiglass...and not you? If people were calling you Truman, that's a dead giveaway!

    weird the clip is gone from the official NBC site. It was available this morning with Firefox and the TouchPad browser. Google it on youtube maybe someone captured and reposted it.

    I don't think so but I'm not really sure. I pretty much use it on all the forums I visit. Always gets comments.

    I think these are all good sings the TP is here to stay and going to grow. Its got to be killing the "WebOS is going to fail" crowd.

    It was funny, but probably just goofy to someone who doesnt know what it is since it just showed a tablet. Thing I noticed is the screen rotate being all over the place and at the end him trying to unlock it.

    I haven't been able to see the Jimmy Fallon commercial with the link here or on the PreCentral front page story.

    Hey, I just noticed, today is my 2 year birthday here on PreCentral! Happy birthday to me! Since I'm only 2, can I throw a temper tantrum until someone gives me a new TouchPad to pacify me?
