Forget Samsung's "designed for humans" slogan, LG says its G Flex is "the most human phone ever" in this creepy commercial
According to LG, the G Flex is “the most human phone ever” thanks to its curved design (including a curved display) and its self-healing back cover.
Don’t get us wrong, we’re more than thankful to modern technology for the fact that it can bring people together. But there are better ways to advertise this than how LG is doing it in this new commercial. The video was posted by LG Benelux, so it will probably be aired only in Europe. Anyway, here it is:

Quite possibly the worst smartphone commercial ever made.
Is there a media award for cringe factor?

Agreed. Bad acting, creepy and if I'm right, G-Flex has nothing to do with fugly tumor in your hand.

Sprint's Palm Pre commercials are a bit hard to beat for cringe factor, but this one is pretty close!

They had the phone "Upsidedown" normally you speak into the ear, and listen to the phones mouth.
The phones "mouth" should have been on top, and you should be speaking into the phones "ear".
But making love on the kitchen sink with your phone, is perverted. :/

Sweet Jesus made of cheese that's terrifying! Time to add commercials to button placement and UI, you know, the list of things that LG is terrible at.

LG managed to put out a crappier commercial than Samsung's Youm commercial when they showcased the flexible screens....

The G Flex seems to be a pretty nice phone, to be honest, but this commercial makes me think LG does not want it to sell. XD
