PlayStation’s Universal Media Remote makes Life in the Living Room Easier
A mockumentary, behavioral study commentating on the dramatic and sometimes difficult interaction between couples in the living room.
MediaCom are launching a new online content piece on behalf of PlayStation in the lead up to Christmas in a bid to sell their revolutionary Universal Media Remote (UMR).
Life in the Living Room made easier is a tongue and cheeky mockumentary that dramatizes the tension over equal access to the PS4 console and recognizes that the controller can be the cause of conflict in relationships.
With so many entertainment options beyond just gaming the living room can be a territorial, competitive and complex arena and let’s be honest hostility can occur at any moment.
To unlock PlayStation’s endless catalogue of entertainment for the entire household, we recognized that the revolutionary Universal Media Remote has the ‘power’ to break down barriers and unlock entertainment, like Netflix, Stan or Foxtel Play for the entire household. This is about everyone, including gamers, being happy.
Subtle references pay homage to the 1980’s era of film and more recently to another extremely popular series currently on Netflix. Strap yourselves in, sound up, full screen and sit back enjoy this perfect combination of popular culture and modern day comedy.
The story is being distributed across PlayStation’s social channels as well as online banners and a takeover on a popular Australian news site.
