I have looked around but found nothing to indicate what the significance of Oskeron is, either here on WB.SE or the internet in general. I thought it might be a literary or cinematic reference, but nothing comes up.

    $\begingroup$ Don't know why, but when I hear "Oskeron" I can't help but think it's a bastardization of "Ask Around." $\endgroup$

This was commented about at the time, the person who created the advert used it as the name of a fictional world and just invented it for the ad. It was suggested that it might be confusing but unless someone wants to create another ad (or modify that one) it's what we get.

On the bright side it did cause some curiosity and discussion :)
