Samsung has the most viral tech ad of the year
The biggest smartphone launch of the year is without a doubt the Apple iPhone 5, but curiously enough it was not Apple that came up with the most viral ad of the year, it was Samsung. And if you are thinking about the nation’s favorite creative barista, you are not far off.

It was one of the Samsung Galaxy S III ads that became tech’s most viral commercial of the year, generating an estimated total of more than 70 million views, according to calculations from researchers Visible Measures. This number represents the “True Reach Views” and is a combined number from different sources.

Intel and Toshiba’s Beauty Inside ad came second and LeBron’s Day, a Galaxy Note II commercial - third.

Interestingly, the official iPhone 5 launch video only ranked sixth, generating nearly 18 million views. We have the most viral ads below, so take a look. Which one you like the best?

it could have been the biggest, but months and months of leaks have made it dull and boring.

They should. They spend more than the rest of the smartphone manufacturers, combined, on marketing and advertising, when what they really need to do is spend some of that money on competent designers and engineers.

iI think their entry level phones will get trouble this year. Chinese OEM have been producing phones with great specs on cheap price.

samsung's entry level phone will more likely get trouble from nokia. like for instance, lumia 620, $249 for dual core, 5mp and a decent screen. also wp is very smooth even with single core, which has been the problem with entry level android phone, there are lags

Do you know what a barista is?
It's Italian for bartender and they prepare and serve coffee, often with designs.
It was first used when someone was boasting about how creative they were.

I dont think so that any company had yet surprissed their following as now all the specs are leaked prior to the launch so the only thing which makes the ad popular is the presentation of the phone so all credits goes to the ad agency!!!

Well, they should, since they spend billions more on advertising than the next closest competitor in the smartphone world. It's all marketing, right?
