VIDEO: Big Bang Theory gone bad for the Asus Eee Pad Transformer

All the ingredients are there for a successful Big Bang Theory rip-off. A cooler looking geek to play Leonard; an uptight, slick-haired skinny guy to play Sheldon; a pumpkin pie-haircutted, lumberjack shirt wearing chap to play Howard; and a hot-girl to play Penny.

All that's missing is the laughs, and quite a lot of talent.

In what has to be one of the worst promos we've ever seen for a new device, here's Asus getting comedy, and its target demographic, very wrong indeed.

The terrible Asus Eee Pad Transformer video has just gone live on the company's YouTube channel and worryingly, is labelled episode 1.

Please, don't let there be an episode 2.
