Samsung makes fun of Apple fans in new ad

Samsung makes fun of Apple fans in new ad
A new 60 second ad from Samsung makes fun of Apple iPhone users and lands verbal punches with a dialogue that is sharp and witty. The ad shows a large number of people in line, apparently waiting to purchase the Apple iPhone 4S. When a couple of people leave the line, someone asks why would they leave when they are only 9 hours away from buying the new phone. Another person on line is using the browser on his phone and says that "the bloggers say the battery life is sketchy" which is a shot at the current battery problems that Apple is having with the iPhone 4S.

The best line is a shot at the fact that Apple barely made any changes to the appearance of the Apple iPhone 4S when compared to the prior model. "If it looks the same, how will people know I upgraded?" asks a concerned person.

All of a sudden, there is a ruckus as a few people walk by the line with Samsung branded handsets, including the Samsung Galaxy S II. The Android models capture the attention of those on line. A quick comparison shows the bigger screen on the Samsung model when compared to the Apple iPhone 4S. Soon, word is spreading throughout the line about this wonderful phone that has captured everyone's attention. "It's a Samsung!". "I could never get a Samsung," says one slacker-looking Apple user, "I'm too creative." "Dude, you're a barista," is the response from his neighbor. Even the tag line takes a shot at Apple, "The Next Big Thing is already here." Apple fans who are good sports might find themselves emitting a chuckle or two while watching this video.

And that is why the 3GS on ATT is the second best selling handset in Q3:11. The best selling handset was the Apple 4, but it had 2 carriers offering it. These facts don't lie that Apple devices continue to sell despite the 3GS being such a dated handset with outdated specs.

3GS is free, but it is amazing how blind Americans are....

Welcome to the U.S. of A. It is because we are taught at a young age that, to be cool, you must conform to some ever-changing socially-accepted norm that evolves with age and time. If you are found to be the same as everybody else in the accepted norm, you are considered to be cool. If you are outside of that norm, you are apparently not cool. In order to know what that particular norm is on any given day for a particular brand of cool people, you must watch your television, check the internet, and rely on trusted certified-cool sources, and then go to the nearest cool store to acquire the cool resources that will secure your material coolness, the nearest cool education source that will provide your cool beliefs, and the nearest cool job that will supply money while giving you a cool career option. When you are done working, learning, and shopping for the day, you go to the nearest cool party that matches your particular brand of coolness in order to show off your coolness, and be certified as a cool person. The iPhone and iPad seem to be considered to be super-cool by most right now. Android is also cool within certain large brands/circles of people. WP7, in time, will probably have a decent clique of followers as well. BlackBerry has had a shot at being the in-phone for a while as well, but they are losing their image as of late. WebOS never seemed to garner a whole lot of clout despite the ad campaigns with cool people involved... but Palm OS was a little like BlackBerry for a while early on. I don't think Symbian was ever considered to be cool in the US. Bottom-line... cool sells in the US. As long as it works decent, looks cool, and offers something a little different from the previous half-decade definition of cool, it has a good chance of becoming the new cool for a while.

yeah, those 2 things were enough for me to not get a Samsung phone, I just don't like them as much as other companies(Motorola) but still, they are very successful, and more popular than others and i'd choose them over apple anyday...

is funny but not surprise from Sammy.... since they cant have those long lines.. unless they camp outside giving them away like they did,,, they have to do something while Apple sits in his throne... waiting to wipe their smile of their faces with a lawsuit....

I agree with the lawsuit, I can't see apple giving them permission to use their phones and a "simliar*" store in a commercial that bashes them. *can't tell if that actually is an apple store or a staged one*

You probably have no color in your life. Can you get 4G LTE speeds on your iPhone 4S made of Samsung parts? No I didn't think so.
