"Draw Envious Looks," Carry Your Camera In A Sony TWA/T

Keep your camera safe and snug in Sony’s stylish new TWA/T. The soft leather carrying case is available in brown, black, and red – but not pink. Sony, please hire someone to manage your obscure naming conventions.

    Keep a camera in my Sony TWAT? That’s a gaffe.

  2. newlywed says:

    i agree…it’s only fair that they should offer the twa/t in pink AND brown AND black…someone at sony has some serious personal twa/t preferences, and has passed them down to the consumer!

  3. Fry says:

    Oh man, I completely overlooked the naming until I read the comments…

  4. Serenefengshui says:

    OMFG! Someone save me from the hilarity.

    No pink, oh dear me.

  5. JessiesMind says:

    Now I know what to get my husband for Christmas! Thank you, Sony!

  6. ExGC says:

    Clearly, this was the responsibility of their new marketing division – the Sony Naming Affiliate for Total Consumer Happiness. Known internally as the SNATCH group.

  7. alyssariffic says:

    Looks like they fixed the name on the page. It’s now the TWA/Brown.

    At one former place of employment I was required to work with an outside marketing agency that did some of our ad work for us. I was sent a packet of copy for a new promotion. It was full of obscure sexual references and double entendre. A co-worker and I pointed this out to management who they accused us of making it up to discredit the marketing agency. It went to print as submitted.

    @ExGC:
    SNATCH….snorted my chablis over my keyboard on that one! Even the outer flaps have a different texture from the inner ones…

  10. y2julio says:

    @alyssariffic: It’s still in the title :p

  11. Bay State Darren says:

    What Sony is doing here is a very serious matter, probably even illegal. They should be investigated and have charges pressed against them.You and I would go to jail for this, but a big corporation like Phony will just get away with it.

    You’re not allowed to sell that for money, it violates vice laws. Obviously Sony think it’s above the law.

  12. humorbot says:

    @Bay State Darren: Wait- what? Vice laws? I can legally blow my life savings on skullfucking porn online and offline and upline and wherever the hell else but I can’t buy a camera case charmingly named TWA/T?

    Can someone explain this?

  13. Falconfire says:

    @humorbot: It was a joke…. IE prostitution as they where selling “TWA/T”

  14. humorbot says:

    @Falconfire: Ah yes. Only in Nevada. Thank you kindly.

  15. homerjay says:

    @Falconfire: Wow, that was a stretch. I had a tough time finding the joke in that until you pointed it out… Maybe I’m just naieve.

  16. rdm24 says:

    I can only imagine the names they rejected!!!
    My imagination runs wild.

  17. rdm24 says:

    @Falconfire: Sounds like humorbot had a temporary malfucntion!

    ;-)

  18. DrGirlfriend says:

    They’re branding TWA/Ts now? How much do they pay? I may or may not be interested in making some extra cash.

  19. Bay State Darren says:

    @humorbot: I was trying to keep my language clean. I guess it would’ve been clearer to phrase it as “You’re not allowed to sell twat for money, it violates vice laws.”

    My apologies to females reading this for even using that word.

  20. trollkiller says:

    I say they are marketing gurus, I want one and I don’t even own a Sony camera.

  21. thalia says:

    I personally prefer the Sony CUN/T myself.

  22. Karl says:

    They fixed the name on most of the page, but the original name still shows in the title bar. I can’t wait to show this off to people while riding the South Lake Union Trolley!

  23. OnionRings says:

    Dang, if your TWA/T resembles cowhide you’re using it too much.

  24. Mary says:

    Along the same lines, perhaps “humorbot” could get in trouble with Comsumerist mods for false advertising…

  25. ryan_h says:

    let me get this right, sony wants us to put our expensive digital wares into their leathery twa/t?

  26. ryan_h says:

    @ryan_h:

    I guess they’re getting tired of keeping all that blueray stuff up there, must be a nice change of pace.

  27. BigNutty says:

    This kind of thing can only happen in Big Business.

  28. tedyc03 says:

    I can see how it would happen only because I didn’t get it at first…I was about to write Ben and yell at him for pushing products on his blog…until I kept looking for a reason and it jumped out at me.

  29. BeFrugalNotCheap says:

    @tedyc03: Oh ye of little faith. Actually I’m also guily because it took about 30 seconds for the name to sink in. Wanna bet these things sell like hotcakes? Sony has struck gold. GOLD I tell yah!

  30. Hinomura says:

    shit if I buy this, it’ll be the first poon I’ve gotten in years. :P

  31. badhatharry says:

    I’ll pass. If I’m going to pay for TWA/T, I don’t want it to be leathery.

  32. gerbilsinlove says:

    Twat was that? I cunt hear you – I have an ear infucktion!

  33. deserthiker says:

    I wonder if they make one from beaver pelt.

  34. alk509 says:

    “Trust me, lady – those looks you’re getting are anything but envious…”

    So I take it the T was for “Tan”, since they changed it TWA/B(rown). Comedic gold!

  35. meneye says:

    even if it’s TWA/B, it’s a dumb freakin name. Might was well call it the 3->

  36. JAYEONE says:

    Is it April Fool’s Day already??

  37. synergy says:

    rotfl Thanks guys for cracking me up with all your comments!

  38. Dormous says:

    I haven’t seen Sony sell something this poorly named since the Sony Petafile, which was a peta-byte professional video server for Broadcast TV studios. Engrish strikes again!!!

  39. KingPsyz says:

    So because I love in Vegas it’s still okay for be to buy the TWA/T, so long as it’s not in town anyway…

  40. KingPsyz says:

    *live in Vegas…

  41. superbureaucrat says:

    What’s next? The sony SHI/T?

    Sony
    Technical
    Imaging
    Transporter

  42. Sidecutter says:

    @alk509: T was likely for “Taupe”, as the Black one if the TWA/B. This is now the TWA/Brown, but WOW.

    Pure. Comedy. Gold.

  43. Mr. Gunn says:

    It’s made of Copper NanoTubes (think about it).

  44. Macroy says:

    If I get dust in my TWA/T, does it void the warranty?

  45. Bay State Darren says:

    @superbureaucrat: Sony Technical Imaging Transporter abreviates to STIT, not SHIT. But if you reverse STIT, then you have a fun word!

  46. CurbRunner says:

    Reminds me of a restaurant, I think in Phoenix or Scottsdale, Arizona, called the
    Pink Taco.
    Some woman started a campaign to get them to change the name.
    She must have had a dirty mind.

  47. Antediluvian says:

    There was an alleged movement (perhaps genuine, probably apocryphal) afoot to update the name of the Maine Maritime Academy in Castine, Maine. The name “Castine University of Nautical Technology” was said to be popular among some of the seamen. The story/joke was amusing in a sophomoric kind of way, and no, the school didn’t change its name.

  48. mmbb says:

    I’ve never seen so many fourth-graders posting this much at this time of night.

  49. cde says:

    @mmbb: Who put sand in your TWA/T? :P

  50. Jesse in Japan says:

    All jokes aside, that is a damned nice camera case.

  51. Antediluvian says:

    @mmbb: Sorry, had just visited fark.com — probably still in that mindset.

  52. Retropants regrets nothing says:

    So they will sell them, yet not admit to employing any.

  53. quail says:

    What if you have trouble fitting your camera into their TWA/T case? (Yes. It does look well designed.)

    Curbrunner, I ate at the Pink Taco once. Good food.

  54. julienne says:

    @quail:
    I get it! The lining is pink! Although that leathery exterior is still like, ewwwwww.

    As for those of us who still like LARGE lenses with LONG TELEPHOTO, I sense we may have a bit of a problem.

  55. CurbRunner says:

    @quail: Said “Curbrunner, I ate at the Pink Taco once. Good food.”

    Did it taste like chicken or tuna?

  56. l0stn0tfound says:

    Get your long lasting “CUN/T” battery while you’re at it!

  57. doctor_cos wants you to remain calm says:

    You folks are in need of Special High-Intensity Training.

  58. I’m not sure I’d invest in a Sony TWAT. Sure, it’d be all shiny, I’m sure I can grill my meat with it, and well built. But it would probably be overly expensive and once I played with it, there wouldn’t be much else to do with it afterwards.

  59. deserthiker says:

    Maybe Sony should come out with a new camera for it out of high tech materials. The Digital Image Camera/Kevlar. So that way you can put your DIC/K in your TWA/T.

  60. Raziya says:

    @deserthiker: ROFL! I’m right about to leave for work and that cracked me up…thanks for that!

  61. vanilla-fro says:

    What if I have a large camera? Does the TWA/T come in large. I also hope they don’t get sloppy with use.

  62. Bill Brasky says:

    Why are my pictures blurry?

    Honey, do you smell something?

  63. @tedyc03: I guess I have a dirty mind because I noticed it right away.
    How hard would it have been to name it TWA/LB for light brown?

    @Karl: Oh NO!
