Galaxy SIII gets new 30 second commercial, isn't taking pot shots at Apple
While Samsung’s artistic barista ads were amusing (at least to non-Apple fans), they also failed to demonstrate why their products were better. So far Samsung has chosen to eschew their inner pitbull for their Galaxy SIII commercials, opting instead to carry on the “Designed for Humans” they began at their product launch. The new 30 second spot shows people using their Galaxy SIII to celebrate a wedding, propose to a girlfriend, and a parent and daughter falling asleep while reading a "book" on the handset.
This kinder and gentler take on self-promotion is one we think is more sustainable in the long run – everyone likes a good chuckle at a competitors expense once in a while, but sooner or later you have to make the case that your product will make consumers’ lives better. Check out the ad below to to decide if they have succeeded:

What if that girl is a techy, she may find him using the technology in such a way clever.

I really enjoyed Samsung's previous commercials! They were funny and I was always hoping Apple would respond. Maybe now that Samsung has taken the serious route, Apple will make a commercial taking shots back! We shall see...

There is no need for this ad,selling it by word of mouth will save you cash.

They are talking up their own features vs. all other phones, so they aren't taking a potshot at Apple any more than they are at HTC or Nokia.
