Samsung shoots ad with child actress from iPhone 4S commercial

Posted: , by Victor H.

Samsung shoots ad with child actress from iPhone 4S commercial
Apple argues that Samsung is “slavishly copying” its products, but while the courts are busy figuring out where’s the truth in that, Samsung just keeps on making some weird decisions. This time, it released an ad for its Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE featuring the very same cute girl actress from... the iPhone 4S camera commercial. 

The advertisement is Korea-bound, and the company has already pulled it from its YouTube page, but once it’s gotten on the Internet you can’t hide it. In case you haven’t seen the iPhone 4S ad, we’ve embedded both commercials below.

A coincidence? Or aren’t there any other cute child actresses out there? Has Samsung copied Apple? Let us know your thoughts after seeing this in the comments below.

This is just ridiculous. It's as though Samsung is cruising into the eye of the storm. Either that or Apple and Samsung made an agreement to share the child actress.

in my opinion, this is THE BEST commercial that samsung ever made. and I thought samsung only knows how to advertise its TV line.
you know, technically, there is nothing wrong in using this actress in this ad. its just another job for her. nobody would have been upset if she plays in a commericial of butters or somthing.
and now, that every body is thinking about wether samsung copys apple, this ad comes out. its brilliant. because it is not wrong, but it made its way to phonearena s headlines. and theres already 40 comments about it.
thumbs up for samsung.

lol, as an Apple fan, i see nothing wrong with this, she is just an actress, pls Apple fans dont start, Samsung is not copying anything, our beloved Apple took ideas THAT ALREADY EXISTED aND made them slicker and smooth, so if anybody else is copying is our beloved Apple, hay dont shoot me, Steve Jobs said it. #HowAboutThat, so lets all stop it with copying bs, wenlive in an innovation age, meaning we take someone else`s idea and make it better, which is more like copying, which is what Apple does, and they r very good at it. But i gatta give it up for their marketing department

Neither does yours. Who cares.. she's an actress. The only way there is wrong doing is if she is under contract with apple..

Samsungs ads have been going directly after apple. How much more direct can u be than using the same people.

Lol.. who is assuming the worst? I didn't assume anything. Your the one jumping to nefarious conclusions.. oi.
The point stands that unless she is under exclusive contracts with apple there is no wrong doing... or did apple invent cute child actresses while i wasn't looking?

I can't believe no one stated the obvious. She's just representing the world, it's another apple user that made the switch to android. ;-)

I personally don't care for either Apple or Samsung, but this is pretty funny. Samsung is obviously messing with them to see how far they can push, and I think it's entertaining. I hope they keep it up, just for the simple fact that Apple continues to prove that they are a company with a permanent stick up the ass and it's really funny to watch them get all huffy and flustered over things that will ultimately benefit the consumers in the end.

Really Samsung... all the child actresses in the world and you pick the one that your arch enemy uses and call it your own... such a shame. I'm just waiting for the day when Apple and Samsung confess their love for one another and finally make out. I think their love child would be great.

Only with electronics I guess. I know I have seen the same people in other commercials for competing companies. I once saw a guy in a McDonald's spot and then the saw him in a Burger King spot. We should look past the companies and realize that this girl is working in an economy that has many people out of work how about that. Apple and Samsung are doing good!!

another thing, the little girl notes:

apple are for outdoor photo shooting
samsung is for multitasking (watch books, movies, play, etc)

you cant copyright an actress. apple is just finding a way to slow down their competition.

it would have been nice however to see subtitles to see what the Samsung tablet was advertising (did they specify camera features?). Other than that I dont see how apple has any ground to sue.

YET ANOTHER reason i will not buy an apple product...is it wrong when i say that companies should grow up and learn to get along? ;)
