Samsung's weirdest 'Apple is rotten' ad ever
Apparently, Apple phones just don't work. They make you suffer terribly. Once you get a Samsung, you perform a mating dance toward a mountain ram. At least that's what this new ad from Iceland says.
You are about to watch someone try to make a phone call with a fruit.
If this is something that might disturb you, please look away now.
However, if you're fond of fruit, art, fruit-art, ninjas, mountain rams, Scandinavia, or Samsung, please click away at the ad I've embedded and bathe in the art within.
Samsung Mocks Apple in Peculiar Ad
Samsung is making smartphone rivalry a battle of the good, the bad — and the random.
In a new advert, Samsung Iceland simultaneously promotes the Galaxy S4 — which now supports the native language of Iceland — and throws Apple under the bus. In the YouTube clip (above), an iPhone user is shown attempting to swipe a touchscreen and make a call — using an actual apple.
The text in the ad, per Google Translate, coaxes Icelandic viewers to use "the phone that understands you." Enter the Galaxy S4. The ad's main character, now an iPhone-user-converted-Samsung-user, casually celebrates with four break-dancing ninjas ... and a goat.
Nothing quite grabs your attention like a goat. Yes, the Internet has shown us that.
But if random animals weren't enough, the once-woeful Apple user puts the final nail in the coffin by taking a bite out of his apple.
Iceland Galaxy S4 ad is the weirdest anti-iPhone Samsung commercial yet
A recently released Galaxy S4 ad in Iceland is arguably the weirdest anti-Apple ad made by the company.
Samsung Iceland seems to think it’s worth diverting from the general Galaxy S4 ad direction with this latest ad release called Sími sem skilur þig, which is roughly translated to “phones that separate you.”
While the iPhone isn’t actually present in the video – spoiler alert – there are lots and lots of apples around a buyer looking for a new handset. The buyer is clearly not happy with the apples, and he can’t make out what they’re intended for. That’s when the Galaxy S4 comes to the rescue, and you’d think that’s nothing weird about the ad so far.
Enter strange (ninja?) dancers and a sheep. In the previous Galaxy S3 campaign that targeted the iPhone, Samsung also made fun of potential buyers who were using iPhones, and one would easily think that theme is back with this particular choice of animals. But what’s the point really?
Samsung Iceland’s message wanted to be simple: you should get a phone that understands you (that’s what the ad says at one point, also from Google translated Icelandic), but the second part of the commercial really ruins everything.
... hopefully ads like the Icelandic one will not appear that often.
