16:9 being put to use on 4:3 ads

Interesting, was watching Frasier tonight and noticed that someone finally came up with an idea of how to take advantage of the side of a 4:3 recorded tv commercial.

WeTV is running fixed panels for 2 of their other tv shows on the sides of any television commercial that is recorded in 4:3.

Obviously the show is recorded in 16:9 so they arent there then but i guess the same thing could happen in an older tv show recrded in 4:3 (they also dissapear for any modern television commercial that is recorded in 16:9 as well).

Interesting that no one else has done something like this before now.



  1. What Was The Phone Number In This Commercial

  2. lol.... no idea considering it was over a decade ago that this Gerber baby insurance tv commercial was run :)

    But thanks for asking....i guess :)
