‘Easy A” makes the grade with Sony’s VAIO PCs

by Team Sony 09/21/2010

It was about two summers ago that I was driving past Nordhoff High School in Ojai, Calif. when I noticed several movie production trucks in the parking lot. It struck me as being quite odd for a couple seconds, but then it dawned on me: Scenes from the new Sony Pictures’ movie “Easy A” were being shot there.

How did I know this, you ask? Am I psychic? Hardly.

My colleague Carla Crossan and I have the good fortune of overseeing Sony Electronics’ collaborative efforts with Sony Corp. on integrating all of Sony’s key products into our movies and television programming. Every week, a request comes to us for products; along with descriptions on how they will be used (according to the script); who will use them, where they’ll be used, etc.

We then suggest what product we feel would be the best fit based on the stated parameters. There are even times when we have to do modified versions of “show-and-tell” with our products with the movie executives.
It’s an interesting endeavor to say the least. It’s also cool to see the products our relatives, friends and neighbors use in real life on the big screen.

“Easy A,” which just opened last week to strong reviews, is no exception. It’s a high school satire that tackles about some big themes. Social media and online videos in particular have a prominent role, so naturally our VAIO notebooks and desktops do as well.

If you happen to catch the movie this week and see one of our VAIO PCs, please let us know about it. It’s never too soon to get some of that Oscar buzz started….

    So you think the strongest acting in the movie is the Vaio PC?

    Hi. If i has a Sony VAIO.VGN-BX563B. but i want to connect to my T.V. LG .what kind the cable do i need ?

      Hi there – good question! I don’t believe the BX has an HDMI cable so you’ll actually need two cables: a VGA cable (for video) and an audio cable. Note though that before you purchase a VGA cable, ensure your TV has a VGA port – some do and some don’t. If not. You can always purchase a VGA to HDMI converter but this won’t carry sound, you’ll still need the audio cable.

      Does that help? Please let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for reading!

    Pure genius. Emma Stone (red-head, hawt main chick) is to die for. I own House Bunny, well actually my little 15-year-old sister does and now I will own Easy A!! Rate it 3 stars out of 5 stars. 1 of the stars is for having Sony VAIO’s throughout the movie! My personal laptop is the white one towards the end of the movie (where the young caucasian man is being hold by a african american male on a bed) :O, EXACTLY, go watch it.! God Bless.. XoXo Sal “)

    Hello, just watched the film today…

    Man, was I glad when the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 popped out of nowhere… :)) I own one, the black one. I bought it because of the 2008 short film, ” Who Is Johnny X ? ” which promotes the X1.

    Again I’ve seen the phone in another recent production called ” Just go with it ” with Adam Sandler.

    It’s a great piece of hardware. Software too. I’m not planing to upgrade soon…

    Now I kinda want a VAIO(the product that got my attention in the 2006 production Casino Royale), to complete my main Sony products collection… I have a Bravia, PS3, Walkman, Cybershot, Xperia, Xpload…
