After Samsung and Nokia, it is now LG’s turn to release an Apple-bashing ad

After Samsung and Nokia, it is now LG’s turn to release an Apple-bashing ad
When you are the most profitable business in your industry, you certainly get more flak from the competition than the rest, which Samsung, Nokia and others have proved with Apple-bashing ads time and again.

Now it is LG's turn, as this might be considered a pretty good year for them against the looming fellow countryman Samsung - LG made a great phone like the Optimus G, and landed the offer for this year's Nexus phone by Google, so it can't really be counted as an underdog.

Plastered all over major Korean publications is this funny ad that depicts the Optimus G slicing an apple like a shuriken, and there are no doubts in anyone's mind what the fruit is supposed to represent. There is some trash talk in the ad, too, which LG commented on with the following:

sorry to say this but you're time is coming not sure if you are innocent anymore or are just flat out "special" with you're comments...either way you seem to be HIGHLY annoying and really indecisive at times...

Hey I'm just sarcastic tho... LG is a very nice device, it just that this adv is a bit irritating for me :( well if thats hurt, I'm again sincerely apologize once again, I take my words back, sorry LG... Peace knight...

11. XPERIA-KNIGHT unregistered

First off dont apologize to me wendy, apologize to the people that have to read your comments... Second I really dont know how this add annoys you as if you are an apple fan everytime all the time because if i do recall there are alot of post with you being android friendly at one point then "anti" android the seriously need to find where you stand and STAY THERE.....stop changing when things dont go you're way or against what you like, AT THE are shaping up to be one to be one of the most indecisive persons ive ever met......and thats really not cool

15. wendygarett unregistered

I rather be uncool to speak the truth... When Apple done somethings not good, I'm also bash it as well... You should know by now that ios 6 is a major major disappointment for us, I used it for almost 3 month and the only things I see the improvement is the siri and facebook integration... Apple maps is completely a joke... It doesn't even show the colour of the maps on my country when the satellite mode is on... "you seriously need to find where you stand and STAY THERE....." I'm purposely make my avatars right to give you a clear picture of who I am... But that doesn't mean you can stop me to praise Google... Because I'm also OWN an android devices remember? you can't see me well is probably you stand one side too seriously... I will never stand one side and I will try my best to stay neutral...

16. XPERIA-KNIGHT unregistered

sorry i began reading your post but had to stop at "apple maps is completely a joke" .....why? because my memory reminded me when you were saying you love apple maps and you are getting used to it more than google remember that one? :(

19. wendygarett unregistered

I try my best to get used of it, but when Google release the maps apps on ios, I just can't stand to download it, and seriously, do I say Apple maps is better, just because I love it doesnt mean it is better, I'm not a god dude lol

21. XPERIA-KNIGHT unregistered

wendy just do us ALL a favor and make your self CLEAR..........i will continue to try my best to ignore your comments until you just make your self clear to everyone here.....its really not that hard pick a side and stay with it through the good articles and through the bad..... And when you say you "love" apple maps IT GIVES PEOPLE THE IMPRESSION, that you think its BETTER! that is what i mean about making yourself clear.......and yea its not about getting a thumbs up and thumbs down but come one you cant sit here and tell me you dont like being misunderstood all the time or even "not" care that people dont get your choices! and if you do, well i dont know what to say, but i guess you like being misunderstood but just know it wont help people in getting along with you....

24. wendygarett unregistered

What do you mean all? Some neutral people here are actually enjoy my comments and understand my sarcasm, why dont you? When I say I love Apple maps, you accused me that Apple maps is better than Google? What if I say I love Google maps? And you accused me a double minded? Did you understand the word neutral? neutral means I'm enjoy to be evil and a good guy in the same time... And be honest, why you want me to stand and stay one side, I'm tired of these fanboys culture in pa that force commenters to stand one side, and I'm going to break that rules no matter what cost it... I'm sorry mate...

25. XPERIA-KNIGHT unregistered

i understand your sarcasm, because im an ifan too. Im truly appreciate your unloyalness, you are evil, because you love to make fun of apple user by sayin "just take my money", in the mean time you taunt the android user lol. You evil, but UNBIASED attitude... And yet you are not even loyal to your gender, you are dude right? Lol

Why do you care how often she changes her mind? Just because she's not loyal to a brand like you who would die for android. Honestly your about as misguided as someone could possibly be. What an idiot, loyal to a multi billion dollar corporation that doesn't even care that you exist. Then you stated your keeping it real, lmfao. I've heard it all. How do you keep it real on Wow!

22. XPERIA-KNIGHT unregistered

i care because a double minded person is the worst thing anyone can be!..........and like i said i will try my best to just ignore her from now me whatever you like but i tried to reach out to her

10. wendygarett unregistered

Well we used to be friend but turn out to be enemy... I guess things might change if I keep on hiding my fanboyism :(
