Samsung pays people to protest outside Australian Apple Store; goal is to mock iSheep culture
Samsung is really trying to push this image of Apple iPhone and Apple iPad users as sheep. After releasing a video that did everything but directly call out all users of Apple devices as sheep, the Korean based manufacturer has ratcheted things up a notch. This week, Samsung paid an Australian marketing company called Tongue to provide protesters to stand in front of an Australian Apple Store and scream, "Wake Up!" The protesters were bused to a location and started the chant that is designed to tell iOS users that they need to wake up and stop blindly following other iOS users.

At the same time, Samsung has put up a "Wake Up!" Australia web site that includes a countdown timer currently at 8,330,000 which is probably counting down toward the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S III, "The next Samsung Galaxy" or whatever the device is going to be called. Visit the site by clicking on the sourcelink. In the meantime, check out how aggressive Samsung has become by clicking on the video below!
