Internal Nokia commercials? (UPDATED)

Check out these commercials from Nokia. I received them via an anonymous poster on my weblog. Perhaps anyone can tell me what this is all about? Here are the links

Update 18 Oct - Claymore found these links - a Spanish guy claims to have 'found' the ads outside Nokia headquarters, and that they might be 'rejected' ads. He hosts both Quicktime and wmwv files of each ad under that link.

Smells 'viral' to me, there's a telling detail that the same IP number host a vodaphone game. https://80.88.224.18/vodafonelivespiderman/

...Like how - is this comment spam? I went to punkey.com but couldn't find where they commented this. Could you see the IP they were posting from?

"Pocketable" is the only one that gets close to being funny, if it hadn't been so damn predicatble.

Punkey received them via email, not as comments. The post is here on punkey.com.

I liked them. InstantGameButton looks like my office. I won't go near that coffee machine again.

More peple take notice: Post at engadget.com, and a post at we-make-money-not-art.com

One can only assume with this way of 'leaking' the commercials that they are trying to catch that "banned" title and spread further.

Silly really, people watch ads regardless if they are banned or not, people just like to label things "banned" I guess.
(side note, Things that are touted as "banned" ads on other sites are correctly labeled "cable" on this one. )

... .The "fake the whole story, three times over" thing? Oooh, "lets pretend they were rejected, yeah that'll make them spread on the web". Fer chrissakes, it's just ads people. Good ads spread on the web no matter what!
Rating 1 for bullshit tactic.

SInce Telemak hosted the TMF awards and webcast... Perhaps these ads were part of it down there in Belgium?

That extra battery power one was pretty boring. (IMHO)
