Samsung does it again, making fun of those waiting on line for the Apple iPhone 5

Samsung does it again, making fun of those waiting on line for the Apple iPhone 5
Remember those hilarious ads Samsung ran last year for the Samsung Galaxy S II? Those spots made fun of the incremental update on the Apple iPhone 4S, and those who waited on line for the device. The commercials coined a new putdown line, "Dude, you're a barista". The new ad shows long lines of Apple iPhone 5 buyers waiting in line at various cities and the chatter is about some of the new features. "The headphone jack is going to be on the bottom," says one of those on the line, with great significance. A woman waiting on the line mentions how the connector is all digital, but admits seconds later that she doesn't know what this means.

Samsung gave away these shirts last year

And similar to last year's ad, all of a sudden someone spots a Samsung Galaxy S III. This year, the person with the Samsung handset is actually on line, holding a spot for someone. And just who is he saving a place on the iPhone line for? Why, it's his older parents of course, as Samsung takes a shot at the characterization of the Apple iPhone as the handset for older people who aren't 'hip'. And while some on the line are talking, two Samsung Galaxy S III users share a play list using S Beam which quickly gets the attention of the Apple iPhone users.

The most telling part of the 90 second spot is when someone starts rattling off the new features of the Apple iPhone 5. "This one's got 4G," offers a Bill Gates look alike."Yeah, we've had that for a while," responds a Samsung Galaxy S III owner. "This one's got a big screen," responds the iPhone user. "This one's got a bigger screen," says the guy with the Galaxy S III who then launches into a litany of some of the features on Samsung's flagship smartphone.

Kudos to Samsung for continuing this series. No matter which phone you prefer, this is 90 seconds of pure fun and amusement and even Apple iPhone users should be able to laugh at themselves after viewing the ad. The only complaint we have is that Samsung didn't bring back the barista.

Thanks Abhi!

Their next ad will be people waiting in line for the SG4.
"This one is better because the screen is 0.2" bigger than before"

yesterday in a train I just switched full battery with my SGS2 after extensive use and an iPhone girl had to plug her charger....luckily and exceptionally there was an electric socket :)
iPhone just can not be used as a camera....dead in a few hours with no options....maybe 2 iPhones in a pocket? :)

If Apple made an ad: "Hey look, the new galaxy has siri!" "Hey! its even worse looking than the last one!" hahaha any company can make another phone look stupid.

Apple doesn't need to do it, though. When you are on top, you don't care what the losers behind you are doing. Sammy needs to keep making some money to pay Apple.

I know! Apple hasn't even taken the time to make commercials firing back at Samsung!

Just like Microsoft never took the time to fire back at all the:
"Hi im a Mac/ and Im a PC" commercials

Sometimes its best to shut up and not draw more attention to an "Im callin you out" commercial

They don't care so much that they need to sue everyone in creation to ban competing phones.

Oh and they're not on top. Samsung is on top, number one smartphone manufacturer in the world with most smartphones sold. And android is on top with roughly two thirds market share.

Love it. I really enjoy these teasing ribbings companies give each other in advertisements. Keep this stuff up, work hard in the R&D labs, and stay out of the courtrooms!

This was a funny ad. Samsung's marketers didn't lose their touch from the last ads featuring this concept.

If anything, this one is more effective with all the "upgrades" of the iPhone 5. My only gripe? Where was the "1 more row of icons" quip?

isn't Galaxy Player and S Voice is clearly copy of iPod touch and Siri? Idc who created those in 1990. Everyone copied Apple but now more succesfull than him.

Nice ad. Best device.

Voice Talk now S Voice existed in the S2 and S2 released 6 months before the 4S.

2012 iPod Nano looks just like 2007 Samsung YP-P2 mp3 players.

I use S2 and I'm not talking about Voice Talk. I'm not talking about Android. But Samsungs INNOVATIONS.

Give me thumbs down fandroids. Apple sucks but Samsung copies. If you can't see reality, you suck too.
