Sarif Industries, the viral marketing site for the upcoming Deus Ex: Human Revolution (posing as the bio-tech research corp from the game) has been updated with some more cool stuff, including a well-produced spoof TV ad for cybernetic enhancement products.
No one should ever have to give up a normal life because of a random incident, or indeed, lose a dream over a physical limitation. So believes David Sarif, idealist, philanthropist, founder and CEO of Sarif Industries.

Pursuing this belief, Mr. Sarif acquired a failing Detroit auto factory in 2007 and repurposed it for the automated manufacture of prosthetics, founding Sarif Industries. Today, we at Sarif Industries share David's passion. We believe that human augmentation will give people every opportunity to improve themselves, making the world a better place to live. Guided by this principle, we will continue to innovate and produce the finest line of Human Augmentation products the world has to offer.
Check out the trailer embedded below (or click here for HD) and head over to sarifindustries.com for more goodies, including what appears to be some form of embedded hacking game.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution is due on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on August 25th 2011.
