    This is an example of the ‘company speaking,’ and not wim wenders. The company is reassuring us that nothing has changed even though the product has. The company is telling us what to expect even though this is a different experience. As a former writer of this kind of stuff, I always had my doubts about it. For instance, this is ripe for parody, or even surrealism: a talking camera telling a bound and blindfolded wim wenders what it will do to him if he doesn’t shill for it. This isn’t a shot at him either, I’m sure he’s quite attached to the machine and feels this is an unobtrusive change. But of course it would be better on all levels to talk about what is different, and keep the overstylized nonsense out of it.
