Samsung teases Super Bowl ad featuring Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, and Bob Odenkirk

Samsung teases Super Bowl ad featuring Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, and Bob Odenkirk
This Sunday is going to be an exciting day. Not only is there a premiere sporting event, but of course along with the Super Bowl come the Super Bowl commercials, which can be plenty entertaining, even if you aren't much of a football fan. As you might expect, Samsung has a Super Bowl ad all ready to go, but it isn't leaking that just yet. However, the company is teasing the commercial with a spot featuring comedy gods Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, and Bob Odenkirk.

The ad is pretty blatantly tongue-in-cheek about the whole lawsuit saga that Samsung has been part of over the past year. In the spot, Odenkirk is brainstorming ideas with Rogen and Rudd about the upcoming Super Bowl ad for Samsung's "Next Big Thing", but because of fears over being used, can't use the trademarked name of the game or teams involved. 

Well played, Samsung. Well played.

I cant help but feel that samsung is trying to hard... Id rather buy from a humble company that a obnoxious one. Focus on the real things like good devices, great new os rollout, and keeping your current customers. Sorry sammy you have droped low...

Hey now remember those ads that apple used to run making fun of PCs? This seems pretty mild compared to that one.

It's funny but I'm not sure as many people will get it as much as their "iPhone is for old people" jabs. Then again, it's a teaser, the rest could be downright hilarious.

Pretty funny haha. But some people don't know about the Apple and Samsung lawsuit wars so I would love to see them incoroprate the Galaxy devices into the commercial more rather than just having the phone there.

My respect for Samsung went way down after using Seth Rogen! They ARE trying too hard.
