Samsung gets an epic new ad for Note 3 where Lionel Messi demolishes buildings to the tune of a boy-choir
Samsung traditionally has strong marketing and it seems to be willing to put its millions of dollars to work here again, but this time with a weird after-taste. The ad named “The Developer” should depict a “dramatic retelling of actual projects” of Messi, according to Samsung. And as to all the singing, it makes for a “musical short film” and the song is actually a version of “Royals” by Lorde.
Take a look at this new Galaxy Note 3 + Gear ad right below.

Yes, that was epic, it was filmed by Lumia 1020.

Even I had to laugh at that.
I love how all Nokia fan boys always refer to their one trick pony the Nokia Lumia 1020. You are right the ONLY thing the Lumia 1020 does right is the camera. It was VERY funny!!!

I watched the ad. I don't remember the phone. I remember Messi and choir. I bet Messi would never ever wear the Galaxy Gear in real life. Well, maybe underneath a pullover.

Mediocre.It shows the device just for few moments.

People will remain just with Messi in their brains after they have watched it.
29. SlimSoulja86 (Posts: 642; Member since: 03 Nov 2011)
And when they see him, they will think about the phone. Trust me

wow messi the first footballer who win 4 ballon d'or
i hope FIFA referee start to adopt smartwatch to minimize controversial decision

Messi bought them from UEFA.
Sneijder and Ronaldo should have won 2 ballons from those 4.

You Manu/Madrid/Ronaldo fans are really weird.
Everyone knows Messi is the best player of this generation. End of discussion.

Did you heard something about Neymar ??? lol Messi is the present and Neymar the future !
30. _Bone_ (Posts: 2140; Member since: 29 Oct 2012)
Neymar is like the Galaxy Gear, he has potential but more hype than hero at this point.
31. rd_nest (Posts: 825; Member since: 06 Jun 2010)
LOL! Definitely I heard about Neymar and all things related to Barca. If someone says do I know about the 57million investment that Barca did? I will reply 'you must be kidding me'.
I know everything about anything related to Barca.

Best player of this generation? No way. Ever heard of Ronaldinho or Zidane they were playing when Messi was playing.

I am a madridista and you're a stupid troll boy. True that messi might not have deserved 2 of his 4 ballon d'ors, but don't blame him. It's the coaches and captains' fault, they vote based on their preference not based on who they should vote for. Messi is without any doubt the best player in the past 4 years, but that doesn't mean he fully deserved the 4 trophies, still you don't go around saying that Messi bought them, that's plain stupid.

I guess with all the millions Rolnaldo has, he could not afford to "buy" some? Disgraceful comment from a ronaldo apologist.
18. artealis (Posts: 98; Member since: 15 Dec 2010)
inter and madrid fans still cant admit that leo messi is the best player in the world for this past 4 years.
i wonder how messi paid platini and UEFA to win FIFA award, all i know FIFA sepp blater is on a cold war with platini.
from 118 people who votes in ballon d'or messi won 41%, he must be so rich so he can pay all those coaches, captains and media every years for 4 years to won the titels, maybe messi is richer than bill gates? lol

marketing the phone just for the right people. The note 3 is for smart, intelligent and busy people who want more from a phone done to sit back and admire the construction. Just like the Ipad the note 3 is the best Phablet in its category and i see o company touching samsung in this section. This is pure innovation. Salute the beast of all pocket pc's.

I must be missing something... they have managed to convey absolutely nothing about Galaxy Gear's capabilities, or is it just that useless?

Vamos Argentina!!! Vamos Messi!!! :D
That was an outstanding ad! I loved it! :D

I think Samsung has slowly gotten better marketing than Apple. Explains a lot why both companies dominate as much as they do, they know how to hit the targets with impressive ads like this.

Note 2 had backham now note 3 has messi

Brilliant ad but I don't need it to convince me about buying the SGN3. Typing this on mine already. I've never been happier spending my money on a desirable device. Had the note2 and I plan on selling that to a friend on Friday. Just my 2nd day with this baby and I'm pleasantly surprised everytime I pick it up. Good job Sammy, good job.

you will be dissapointed after a month when massive slowdown of the whole system will impact, everything will start to lag, spike, close from time to time... because that's the best feature of touchwiz

He has used the Note 2, so i'm sure that he is not too dumb. Nice try though...
