LG wants you to make a smart choice with hilarious new G Pad Series ad
Using humor to make a point is a reliable, age-old playbook, and it generally works. In LG’s case, its new ad for the G Pad Series of tablets is merciless.

It is plain to see that LG ripped a page out of the well-played marketing plan, but why try to fix sometime that is not broken? The ad cuts right to the chase, “People sometimes make dumb choices.” Indeed, that is true.

As far as comedy goes however, this poor soul runs the gauntlet of abuse in a manner that would send any of us mere mortals to the hospital. Whether it is almost getting hit by a bus, walking into a lamppost, falling into a manhole, or getting shot in the head with darts, this is a tale that exudes the concept of being ridiculous to a new level.

In the meantime, LG does manage to share a little bit of functionality of the G Pad, at least the part that links the LG smartphone to the G Pad so you can make or take phone calls on it.  So, which choice are you going to make?

I'll wait until the G3 design team works on a tablet. So far, LG tablets are bland and uninteresting.

The display which samsung offered in tab s series are unriveled... LG is also good in displays but cannot matching the sharpness and crispiness of tab s series.... so in my view for tablets tab s are better choice

They really should release a flagship tab. The G Pab 8.3 is good, but old. Looking forward to LG's next tab considering how good (or decent) the mid-range G Pad series were.

how do they expect to sell tablets in the United States or most of the countries when they are just so stupid in the commercials no wonder asian marketing does not work for any other part of the world, this is just bad marketing

If I hadn't bought a G Pad 8.3 I would have bought one of these just because of this ad. A masterpiece.

You care about the camera on a tablet? You USE the camera on a tablet?

I think the point is that this is seen as a replacement of your phone, aka phablet or tablet phone. Therefore the camera should be replacing the camera you would like on your phone. Then having a flash is a very valid point I think, especially since there is more realestate to work with.

The interesting part is that the "old" Gpad 8.3 has superiour hardware and most notablly a superiour screen. I guess that's why we are stuck on the old G2 interface... Would love to have double window.
