Is it true that Microsoft overpaid the new spock actor to appear in an xbox ad?

#1NightMareBunnyPosted 12/18/2013 11:07:03 PM
I see that commercial quite a bit where spock appears for a few seconds but someone told me Microsoft paid too much just to have that guy in the commercial. Is that true or is it just a rumor?

My bad, just wondering why it matters. MS is a big company, they spend lots of cash to do stuff like this. Nothing new.

All they want is there name out there, having big name people in ads does help, even if it is a short time.

Was paying Lou Reed royalties for "Perfect Day" for 60 seconds really going to make people buy the system?

Probably not. Do you have any idea how much money these companies spend on marketing? Marketing budget is always majorly bloated, but the commercials put the systems out to the public, which is what Sony and MS both want. Just the fact that you're talking about it justifies it.
