Samsung Takes On Apple “Magic” In New Commercial Spot

Samsung pokes fun at Apple’s grip on it’s consumer base by showing Apple fans as…wait for it Android fans…your favorite word…sheep. Of course the term “sheep” could be thrown right back at any fanboy group (that includes you Android faithful) but…Samsung strikes a chord and chalks up a total win with this commercial. This is well worth 60 seconds of your time.

More importantly, the Galaxy S II in white looks awesome.

    So if Samsuck fans flock to the stores and they sell out the Galaxy S 2 phones in minutes, will that mean their customers are stupid too?

      People often mistake the most important metric for a lesser one. Profit.

      • independent thinker

        Davis probably supports OWS and feels like a 99%er  but he supports Apple 

      • Drew

        Wow David, seriously?? Unless you’re a shareholder, the average consumer can give a rats ass about the profit margin a company makes… Very surprising statement from you. I expect that type of response from an Apple apologist ‘non-shareholder’. They seem to always be the one who brings up profits…

        • http://ashn.myopenid.com/ Ash

          Like I always said, if one does not work for apple or own their stock, why is a company butt rape their customer’s wallet a good thing for them??

      HTC just became the #1 smart phone in the United States….passing RIM, not Apple.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jonathanf Jonathan Fingas

    It’s a fun ad, but three goofs:

    1. It insults the people it’s trying to convert (one’s a hipster stereotype, one’s snarky)
    2. Irony: a huge, faceless corporation, concerned less about users than Apple, trying to argue that you’re individualist if you buy its phone
    3. No one steps out of the line at the end. “Eh, it’s nice, but I’d still rather have an iPhone.”

    • TMOTECH

      1. Yep that’s who they are.  Trust me, I know them. 
      2. Let me know when you find a small business run by a hippie in a basement that can produce such a product with success. The point is that you can actually customize the phone to your liking and not be like everyone else.
      3. Because they are artistic idiots. Sheep follow no  matter what. That was the point. 

      But hey if you like the I Phone more power to you. 

      • http://tmonews.com David

        Really? You sure? That’s who I am? I’m not an automated sheep incapable of thinking for myself and selecting a product based more on my own personal interests rather than following the crowd.

        Comments like these fail to recognize one thing, you too sir are a sheep. Just for a different shepard.

      I can name one thing all android phones have that Apple doesn’t… Free turn by turn navigation built into the phone. I could name more, but honestly that 1 thing is all it takes for me to continue dismissing every iteration of the iPhone.

    • Sean Su

      I don’t want a phone with a tiny screen either. While the SII may be on the larger end, I think a 4″ or above is where it’s at because there is less ‘bezel-ing’ around it.

    • Anonymous

      But are you saying the iPhone is not a tiny phone?

  • Anonymous

    What makes this ad so interesting is not so much the way it pokes fun at the iPhone groupies (which is really pretty mild), but the fact that it dares to show people speaking disdainfully about the product being advertised (“It’s a *Samsung*” — said with faint disgust). You almost never see that in advertising. And even though the people with the negative attitude in the ad are the ones being gently ribbed, it registers as somewhat daring. (Plus, “Can I see it with my hands?” and the blonde woman’s mocking repetition of “Why don’t you just get a 4G phone?” are genuinely funny lines, and delivered well.)

  • Greg

    “Of course the term “sheep” could be thrown right back at any fanboy group (that includes you Android faithful”

    I came here to say this.

    Honestly the people who hate the iPhone just for the sake of hating it are more “sheepish” than its fans.

    • Drew

      What you fail to understand is… the people who ‘hate Apple’, don’t hate the products per se, they loathe the people that own them. They detest their elitist, logo-worshiping, apologist attitude. Stop acting like the money Apple has is yours too!! Just sayin’…

          I know where you’re coming from. I just don’t limit my dislike for fanboys to apple ones. I find the Android ones just as bad. 

          Worse, if we consider the ones who Instead of getting hyped up to buy a new iPhone once a year or so, have to run out and get the latest Android  one because it’s got a screen that’s 0.05″ bigger and 0.1ghz faster.

      Greg, ol’ buddy… We don’t hate the iPhone. You’ve got it wrong. We simply hold you in disdain due to the fact that iPhone users are so close-minded. On top of that, Apple people seem to be very snobbish, as in, “why would you even consider anything other than an iPhone?” The commercial is spot on.  I’ve seen it, I’ve met them, and I know this is a fact. Of course, its not 100% of the iPhone users. Many are simply naive and are just following the “herd”.

      • Greg

        Don’t get me wrong. I’m not an iPhone user. I had one of the 2nd generation ones, but that was long ago. I’ve had two Android devices and a Blackberry since then. lol

    It seems biggish, but if you saw it in action, the size of the phone diminishes as the screen draws you in. I watched part of a movie being downloaded from Netflix. The colors were so true to life. The image was razor sharp. It never blinked or looked watery.

      I agree. Android definately has its share of issues. But, I love the marketplace and the screen size of android over iphone. Windows Phone 7.5 Mango is very smooth, but has very little functionality due mainly to a lack of apps.

    Last year if you go to all the tech sites year end list of to phones, most had an Android phone #1 and Iphones were further down. Surveys show Android fans as being more tech saavy than Iphone users.

    • TMOTECH

      That’s why I Phones are so popular  because they are so easy to use. But I like Android better. 

      • Frank Jacobs

        Same here. I prefer Android, but the iPhone is easy to use, and it does the things most people want it to.

        I also have to give props to Apple for their development cycle. A lot of people don’t like the idea of only one new phone per year, but think of it this way. When a new iPhone is released, it has its bugs, just like all phones do. Once users start bitching about them, Apple gets to work correcting the problem.

        We can’t always say the same about companies pushing our devices. In their hurry to get the latest and greatest product out the door, they often deliver it with half baked software, then take forever to release updates and fixes, because they’re already hard at work on the next device that’s due to come out in another two months.

          Hey Pimp. I had to switch to the Black one, the white is back-ordered. I got it for $699 shipped, with 3 day select. I was not willing to wait any longer, and pay the extra for a color. So I took the difference in a refund, and opt’d for the black instead.
