Tim Burton to direct Unicorn Apolcalypse movie in new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 ad
Actress Helena Bonham Carter has a pretty famous husband, a director that you might have heard of named Tim Burton. Yeah, that's a joke. We all know who Tim Burton is from such films as Edward Scissorhands to The Nightmare Before Christmas and Sweeny Todd. Heck, he even directed Mars Attacks! although we can easily forgive him that one transgression.

What brings Mr. Burton to our pages is his appearance in the latest Samsung commercial. This is actually the latest episode in the Unicorn Apocalypse series. You might recall that Samsung invented a made-up video game studio to promote the Samsung Galaxy S III and the Samsung GALAXY Note II for use in the enterprise. The studio produced a game called Unicorn Apocalypse which leaked in the ads due to the other handsets used by employees that were not as secure as the Samsung models. This time, the ad promotes the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet.

In the new ad, Unicorn Apocalypse is being made into a movie, and who better to direct the film than Tim Burton. The movie is to be Unicorn Apocalypse : Horn of Darkness. We don't want to spoil the ending for you, so just take a look at the video below.  We also included the earlier ads so you can quickly get up to speed. No need to thank us, it's just what we do.

Samsung seems to be paying for some pretty funny ads, I'm just not seeing how they actually sell phones. Brand awareness is valuable, but they just throw in buzzwords and branded TouchWiz features on top of scripts that have very little to do with their devices.

If Tim Burton himself says its too weird, you just need to call it a day.

They should take a different approach. Rather than spending money on advertising, they should just use the money to screw over Apple. Have a patent trolling budget that strictly targets Apple.

Patent trolling doesn't pay much in long run and who would know this better than Apple (and Samsung) ...
