This divide has been around since

In general, without getting too much into the advanced and diverse subgenres of science fiction, there are two schools “hard” and “soft”. While the distinction isn’t always clear cut, there are a few key differences. Hard science fiction relies on using already established science or justifying its fictionalized science using carefully calculated predictions. Hard SF tries to use the advanced technology as something that is important in itself, with its consequences, limitations and new uses being the main plot points. Due to the heavy focus on the scientific aspect, this is a rather niche market. Soft science fiction includes everything else, and generally falls under two major schools adventure/pulp science fiction (which includes the Space Opera) and social science fiction. The former uses technology as a means to an end, merely a backdrop that allows The Captain to fight for JusticeTM with a Stun Ray against the evil aliens and have space sex with the Green Skinned Space Babe, instead of having to have him use a boring, ordinary gun and have boring, ordinary sex, with the boring, ordinary skinned Earth babe. In the latter, the technology is used as a means of exploring characters and its social/psychological effects. Of course, it is entirely possible to have an action packed adventure story with deep social commentary. In both schools of soft science fiction, it usually doesn’t matter whether the technology used is actually plausible or not, and there is often little to no explanation as to how the technology would actually work. Because hard science fiction tends to focus more on scientific detail and soft science fiction focuses on well developed characters and/or adventure, there is a divide between certain sections of the fandom. This divide has been around since, essentially, the very beginning of the genre. However, “hard” and “soft” say nothing about quality or literary value, just the level of scientific detail and accuracy used.

This rather trippy advert for Empire Beer shows a huge party inside a normal looking castle, complete with hallways, a bathroom, and a huge hall. until the interiors and furniture starts wobbling and bending around like crazy. At one point a sink bends downwards after someone falls onto it, spilling all of its water onto the floor, and the bathtub squishes as another person falls onto it. At the dance hall, the whole castle starts to shift like crazy as a rave kicks in, with the walls and an upper floor balcony violently bulging and swaying in and out as people jump up and down. We even see some people being tossed high into the air, one of them flying straight into a window which then bounces him back, and even we even see shots of the floor itself wobbling, lifting up small objects such as shoes and well as people laying on the floor into the air. At the very end, an outside shot reveals the action was taking place inside a literal bouncy castle.
