Microsoft Pokes Fun At “iSheep” And “One Trick Pony” Samsung Galaxy Owners

Sure the ad is for the Lumia 920 and it’s AT&T branded in the commercial, but this is a Microsoft ad and one of the best marketing spots I’ve seen in some time. Between the “iSheep” insults, the “one trick pony” Samsung Galaxy Note insults and the guy with the Apple logo tattooed on his chest, Microsoft hits a home run with this ad.

I had to watch this twice just to catch-all the fanboy insults the second time around and its great. Poking fun at the Samsung/Apple rivalry is a thin line for Microsoft given how easy it is to poke fun at its market share, but they really knock it out of the park with this one.

I don’t know if this ad is enough to get people to switch, but a few more spots with this much awesome and I’m sure someone out there will reconsider Windows Phone.

    I rather like this. In fact I love it; and I say that as an Android and iOS user.

  • Oliver Jackson

    Samsung won esp the chick in the green dress

    Way better than those dumb surface commercials with all those people dancing. We like fighting because we got something to fight for…market share.

  • Deacon

    not to mention that everyone can’t switch as the 920 is exclusive to only ATT so this commercial should have said “switch to 920 but we’re only talking about the AT&T customers who can.”

      Or the 928 on VZ in a few days.

    LOL, funny indeed, but like so many Microsoft ads these days, it probably does more to help promote the reality that the market is dominated by apple and Google/Samsung, rather than convincing viewers that the lumia is a viable 3rd option. These two WP users at the end have “irrelevancy” written all over their face…

      Lol, they even promoted S3 users doing the beam lol…

    the poor old man under the table if he had only use the Google now to do his karate search instead of siri he be in a better place then!! hahaha, great commercial though.

  • Eric Stengrevics

    ….It said nothing about WHY I should switch. It just told me to do so. And called me old.

  • Winski

    ISheep…humm.. Is that kinda like iStupid for still being a winders user?

    • Ordeith

      You must enjoy using the same overpriced, limited platform that is endorsed by Rush Limbaugh.

  • Wicked1

    Yes, just saw it. That commercial is hilarious. One of the best ad spots I have seen from Microsoft in a long time, maybe ever, haha. Still don’t plan on getting a Windows phone though.

  • CDavisUnlimited

    I’m not a Windows Phone guy, but that is SERIOUSLY the best and funniest ad I’ve seen in years.

  • alex Irume
