Nintendo DS Lite Ads from South Korea

I'm spending a couple of weeks working in Seoul. On one of my forays through the city I came across these ads for the Nintendo DS.... cute aren't they?

But they really do play the DS - saw them in the subway. And no guys so far. Guess they're more into Starcraft and WOW at the PC Bangs.

Why? You don't get a girl with a purchase. Why would that make you buy one? Either you want one or you don't.

Also, not sure this needed to be bumped.

Also, not sure this needed to be bumped.

Why do women buy beauty products based on adverts showing beautiful women? Why do deoderant adverts feature women?

Because sex sells.

Becase people attatch the product to the people they see on screen, and believe they too shall be a beautiful Prince of our Time provided they buy this product.

I could see it if were selling clothes or cosmetics because it's showing the product being used but to think that an Asian girl playing a DS is going to sell you a DS is just stupid. The DS has nothing to do with the girl. Although I know your right and sex sells anything, I still find it pathetic that a pretty face is all it takes to sell a man a DS. Doesn't say alot for you guys now does it? ;)

I already had a DS when I saw the Ads  :P

Anyway, I had the impression the ads were targeted at girls and women, showing how much fun you can have with the DS - they also always show a "girl-compatible" game like Nintendogs or Mario . So I don't think this is a case of selling with sex. And the ads seem to work, because in the subway in Seoul I mostly saw girls playing the DS, guys usually had a PSP.
