DR: How did you come up with the idea of a guy lying on the couch just marking the days?
RT: The whole concept came about in December when there were no pictures of the Xbox, just a bunch of rumors flying around. So we had to advertise the Xbox, but not show it. And like most people, I was just waiting for the Xbox; for the look of it; for the games. So I just thought of the idea of a kid in a room, but make it a little bit bigger. And we wanted it to look like the official Xbox site, as well. From there, we just sorted of brainstormed.
