A bit off-topic, but...
EDIT: Question answered.

So I was watching some television the other day and this weird commercial came on. It appeared to be a 30-second preview for something, but after watching it I was left flabbergasted. Hell, I can't even remember what the hell this commercial was advertising:

Anyways, I remember a couple interesting tidbits about it, so maybe you guys can help me out.

1. Lots of electrical/mechanical sound effects (grinding, scraping, buzzing etc.)

2. Somewhat of a light-brown color scheme. Maybe some dark moments.

3. Probably the most important thing about this commercial was that, if you're familiar with the terminology, it was pretty much a bunch of C4Ds rotating on the screen. Man, if you were watching this as well you would have thought it was some crazy s*** too.

4. A logo was on the biggest C4D on the screen. Don't remember what it said, though.

It's been bugging me all day! >.<

Not sure what this has to do with Cloverfield.

Was it this video?

This could possibly be a part of the new Star Wars: The Old Republic ARG. lol

I remember when I first saw the cryptic ad for the show Hot Box, that was just a spinning box with fancy electrical interference and stuff. That bugged me for a couple weeks, til I finally found out what it was for.

I doubt it was the iDon't ad, seeing as only a few seconds of that matches the first and second things described, and there's no C4Ds at all, let alone a bunch of rotating C4Ds and one big one with a logo on it. They stand out, I'm sure that's not something that would be easily confused.

At least this is a little something to do while we're waiting for CF2 to never come. Do you remember, or know, what channel it was on?

MovieViralDan hit the nail on the head. This is the exact commercial I was looking for.

Lol, maybe I got a couple details wrong.

That was...disappointing. I was expecting more C4D-like C4Ds, not to mention multiple rotating ones, rather than just a couple different shots of the same fancy 3D text. This is gonna confuse me for a long time... lol oh well. The ad's pretty cool, nonetheless.

Yeah its for a new phone that's supposed to blow iPhone out of the water, though I love the iPhone, so I doubt it.

That ending is really weird.
