Yeah. Don't remeber it, myself. I remember the lame TV ad and that's all
After a bit of digging around, here is what was their UK press release, which got a bit of publicity in the papers:
'ARE THEY MENTAL? UK FOOTIE FANS GO ORIENTAL
LONDON (April 17, 2002) - One in five dedicated football fans are prepared to switch to a Japanese time zone this summer, if it means they are able to watch their team's matches live on TV, according to a survey commissioned by TiVo, the creator of and leader in television services for digital video recorders (DVRs).
The survey reveals that a third of the nation's men plan to watch every World Cup match their team plays, no matter what. But with many matches being shown at unsociable hours, committed football fanatics may resort to turning Japanese for the summer, putting their alarm clocks forward eight hours, eating breakfast for dinner and working as if they were in the World Cup time zone.
Matthew George, Product Marketing Manager for TiVo, explains "It's evident from the research that to get the best out of the World Cup footie fans are prepared to go to the extreme of adopting a Japanese lifestyle - but if you aren't prepared to do this and want to retain some control over your life, TiVo provides the ideal solution!"
George continues, "TiVo is the perfect companion! Through the touch of a button TiVo lets you replay the action in slow-motion as it happens, pause the game if your mum calls mid penalty, store all of England's matches digitally and even automatically record all your other favourite programmes for when you are all footied out".
