  2. The spot was appreciated by Reddit users.

PlayStation fans have created a humorous advertisement for PlayStation 5, which ridicules the massive shortage problems that are currently occurring all over the world.

The short, thirty-second spot sums up quite well what people wishing to try out PS5 this year have to go through - constant monitoring of online stores and company's channels in social media, rushed shopping, not to mention the hectic refreshing of websites.

PS5 - fans praise the video and ridicule the launch

The Internet users have received this "advertisement" with great appreciation. The Reddit forum is full of cheeky comments praising the work and criticising Sony.

"This fan made video deserves to be on the top," praises Memehed.

"Our combined number of hours hammering F5 these last few weeks... We could have cured cancer or made peace in the Middle East," remarks privileged_racka.

As a reminder, PlayStation 5 made its official debut on November 12 or 19, depending on the region. Despite accessibility problems (caused in part by scalpers buying PS5 out of stores en masse), the console recorded the best debut ever.
