Google promotes Chrome web browser with 11 short videos

Google has commissioned a series of 11 short films to promote the Google Chrome web browser. If you've ever doubted the power of advertising to make something mundane look pretty darn cool, click the play button above.

On the one hand, a browser is just a portal to the web, and so you'd think the last thing you would really need are a bunch of bells and whistles to make a browser look cool. And Google Chrome, with it stripped down interface doesn't really seem like it would have very much to highlight.

But you know what? A car is really just a vehicle for traversing the road. But most car commercials make the car itself look like the sexy thing, not the road. And the video above really does make Chrome look more exciting than the web pages you'll use it to visit in real life.

You can find the rest of the videos at the Google Chrome page on YouTube.
