Protegent Commercials

From Terrible TV Shows Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Who's got the power, the power to install viruses, who answers the call for victims not in need? Proto! Protegent!

The Protegent animated videos are computer safety PSAs revolving around Protegent, an Indian computer software that blocks viruses and malware, filters junk mail, etc. Each short revolves around a person or a group of people using a computer, something goes wrong, then Proto (whose design is plagiarized from Super Why!) comes and installs himself on the computers.

Why They Suck

  1. The Flash animation in the two-dimensional ads is stiff and cheap.
  2. The title itself is also very stupid and sounds more like a cleaning product.
  3. Indian stereotyping. This is ironic because these commercials were made in India.
  4. One ad suffers from sudden drops in audio quality.
  5. Bad voice acting. In addition, Proto never has a consistent voice actor.
  6. Poor grammar, especially for Proto himself in the rap song.
  7. Low-budget quality across all the commercials (that were published in 2013 and 2014, which is still unacceptable).
  8. Proto's design is plagiarized from the title character Whyatt Beanstalk from Children's television series Super Why!.
  9. One of the videos has a school's principal going crazy because a student saw "pornography" on his computer, even though he was just looking at images of couples kissing.
  10. One of the commercials, perhaps the most famous one, was a cheesy rap song, which had offkey singing and some bad grammar here and there.
  11. A CGI ad shows a character who is like Proto with a mustache, and it has Proto too.
    • Also in this commercial, when the computer crashes, it plays a censor bleep sound effect which is very unfitting as it's not an error sound.
    • In 2020, this ad was remade and it is somehow even worse, with new animation errors everywhere and the animation looking a bit worse than it did before.
  12. Recently, another ad was made which somehow manages to be worse than the previous ones.

The Only Redeeming Qualities

  1. The original version of the commercial mentioned in WIS #11 has passable CGI animation compared to the others.
  2. Protegent would later redesign their mascot to avoid copyright infringement, though his newer design isn't any better.

Trivia

  • These commercials became Internet memes, with some concerned that Protegent was an actual virus, which is what it's supposed to fight.
  • In 2018, Proto, the Protegent mascot was actually redesigned due to copyright issues, though only slightly though, as he still looks exactly like Super Why.

(Sees a student looking up pictures of Izuku and Ochako kissing in front of the classroom with all the students and Mr. Aizawa there)

Principle, I saw a kid looking up hentai on the computers.

Protegent is here and told the FBI on the kid.

Oh, must be someone from Mumbai, Delhi or Bangalore stereotyping other Indian regions. Same thing happens in the USA and Brazil.
