Sharp Advertising?

Just saw a commercial for Sharp Aquos LCD TVs. The gist of it: You’d have to be a physics professor to select a TV these days; luckily, the star of the commercial is a physics professor. Scrambling to the Internet, I learned that he is indeed a professor of physics—Gerard Fasel of Pepperdine.

Now, OK, I’ll grant the physics professor a little extra cred in the world of technology (less so than a professor of electrical engineering, but much more than, oh, let’s say…me).

However, when it comes to the crisp, vivid colors that I might look for in an LCD television, I’d rather the commercial spokesperson not be someone who appears to be AN ALBINO.

So, color me cynical.
