Our favorite barista returns in another new Samsung ad

Our favorite barista returns in another new Samsung ad
Earlier this morning we showed you the latest ad from Samsung and we were a bit disappointed. The edge seemed to be missing from that commercial, but the Korean manufacturer might have recaptured some of the magic in the second new spot to be released on Monday. And this time, our favorite Apple iPhone lugging barista is back.

Unlike the other ads, this time the action starts away from the line to buy the next Apple iPhone. This ad opens in a coffee shop where our old friend the barista works. He happens to be serving a customer with a Samsung Galaxy S II (natch) who says, "Latte art. I see you're still creative." ZING! A couple of the barista's pals come into the shop and the talk turns to camping and quickly the Samsung Galaxy S II owner uses 4G speeds to find a camping site. ZING!

Of course, the rub there is that the Apple iPhone does not have a 4G model while the Samsung phone does offer 4G connectivity. Oh yeah, the camping out that is being referred to is actually waiting on line for the next iPhone. "Urban Camping," it is called and the barista adds, "This is our generation's Woodstock." And so it is.

LMAO! Samsung is on a role! Google should use this as an example, and help android gain more ground, with commercials.

Technically, it's not Samsung's responsibility to say something about Android. They're spending money to advertise their own products whether they implemented Android as the main OS or not.

If you look at an iPhone 4S it still very clearly says "3G" at the top. I should know. I activate a couple of them once every two weeks.

This one was a lil better... But still the iPhone users show no care for the Samsung phone lol... He went thru the trouble to use 4G to search a camping site and they wasn't even talking about camping for real lol... waiting in line to get the most desired phone on the market... It reminds me of how crazy people are about waiting in line to purchase retro air Jordan's... Again if your gonna make an ad please create a feeling for the consumer that they MUST HAVE your product...

the unfortunate thing is most apple users have not experienced 4g and they will when the 5 comes out until then they get to use their outdated phones, in the meantime im in lte bliss omg its so sweet

sadly only apple users know the fun to wait outside the shops for days and hours as apple has patented the urban camping too
