When there are new versions of tablets, phones, phablets and every other imaginable device coming out every day, it's pretty impossible to keep up with it all, as this tech ad from Toshiba shows.

The colorfully animated ad is styled to look a lot like Futurama in a world that's overloaded with emojis, robots and people wearing Google Glass-like technology. On top of this, there are tons of people hawking 3D printers, 4D printers, 5D printers and so on. With so much going on, "Sillycon Valley" spirals out of control, but all this noise becomes quiet with Toshiba's Encore 2 tablet. Instead of pushing its product as the newest, hottest and fastest out there, Toshiba makes fun of how its competitors are making these claims in advertisements.
