Breaking Bad and movie hunk Aaron Paul is turning on Xbox One consoles across the country by whispering sexy talk in to the Kinect sensor.
The Need for Speed star features in the latest UK advert for the Microsoft console and near the start he clearly says “Xbox on”, the command to power up the device. “Aaron Paul just turned my Xbox One via the Xbox advert. (Which triggered the IR [infrared] blaster to switch my TV off)” complained a UK based tech-blogger.
The staff at MCV have also experienced the problem but Microsoft have said they “had no comment at this time” regarding the advert.
Amsuingly the advert is one long promotion for Kinect, which, as the very small print reminds you, is no longer sold with the console.
“It’s disgusting,” said Gerald of Finchley, “Aaron Paul coming over here with his good looks, piles of cash and cult TV show, and then sweet talking my own Xbox and turning it on whilst I am in the same room! How is an overweight, forty year old Titanfall is gamer meant to compete with that stud muffin? Shame on you Microsoft!”*
