I also would like to remind you guys that they are just trying to sell something, and if you had to integrate trick photography into your commercials to sell your product, chances are you wouldn't hesitate when it came down to doing so.
Wow, haven't seen you around for a while.
But I am in with you on this one Evil. I don't think they would make much of a profit, or expect one after all, if they think that their comercials will get the customer to buy it, which is working, then they wouldn't invest in 'special' effects. They probably just show the kids holding it and shooting it as they are told to by acting like it is fun and all. Then they go in and shoot the enemy from 5 feet away.
That's my thoughts in it at least. They always show the gun being fired, and split second later, the target, which is hit. You also need to think of the ways people that make comercials were tought to make them. They learned stuff like how to make targeted object appear further than normal. Such as making the target and background smaller, to appear more distant to the human eye. These people are trained comercial pros. They don't make the guns. Please keep that in mind too.
Hasbro most likely uses a comercial group. My guess would be to give the comercial experts a 'thesis' or main idea of the situation, and work with it. For instance, they are told that they are filming kids with foam guns shooting something 50 feet away. The Nerf people would then critique it and decide if a new comercial is needed. That is all Nerf does. The comercial experts do the rest while Nerf supplies them.
So many ways to 'jip' the people of this world. And so many people are getting how to do it. But I'm not complaining about Nerf. I love it. So just Nerf. Like it or not. Don't watch the comercial for real advise to how far it shoots. Just look at it in a store and try it out if you want. You can always put it in the packaging and return it. I did it with the TTG. And if they ask what is wrong with it, just say you didn't like it. Those stuck-up people though had me diminstrate it working properly first though.
