The beginning is actually really funny... Then it just gets weird.

Clearly Samsung is stating that their phone is better than fruit. And that Icelandic Ninjas can dance better than fruit too.

Quite obvious that's it's targeting apple, however it's a pretty sweet ad.

That was ALMOST more moronic than the Surface ads. Dancing ninjas? Who is the target demographic, people who watch "Dancing with Effeminate Japanese Assassins"?

I'ma bet you don't appreciate staring at a Picasso painting or even listening to other genres of music outside of your comfort zone

I gotta give you credit for Microsoft part though.....

I'm a lit man, and I do have some limited art appreciation (English major). However, that just goes beyond the pale, and I found it a bit pretentious/ faux arthouse and lacking in nuance. I'm going to guess Terrence Malick didn't direct it.

The commercial was intended for ice landers. You must be a typical and majority American population who think everything on this earth was created for you

I don't think anything of the sort, but it is nice to know there are narrow-minded bigots in Iceland, just as there are here. I made a judgment based on the video itself, as is my right. Outside the Poetic Edda, basic topograpby and climate, a financial crash, and a disastrous West Ham ownership by a prominent Icelandic businessman, I don't know a lot about Iceland, so I will reserve my judgment of you, and definitely avoid characterization of your people based on your response.

Am I the only one that finds Samsung adds stupid? I hate adds where somebody dances

I don't like a lot of them but a lot of them were geared for people in other nations. Our commercials tend to be more rude or crude, violent, or a beautiful model

Maybe you are right but MS surface adds for North America was something similar, with a lot of people dancing happy with their tablets... WTF!

Samsung is becoming lame and repetitive now! Samsung clearly envies Apple but now they're borderline obsessed. Just make your products and shut up already!
