    I thought the ad spot was more of a slight to the NFL than it was to Apple.

    I watched the video before I read the article and the first thing I thought was "Better call Saul" Odenkirk was indeed channeling Saul in that commercial.

    I thought the ad was jabbing the NFL. Like when the NFL sued fan sites for mentioning their teams and using team logos.

     



    Yep. You can't say "Super Bowl", use team names, and any description of the game is the property of the NFL... I'm amazed that fans can talk about football with each other anymore. But... I guess that's somehow an Apple slam?


     


    If it's a teaser maybe they actually do make fun of Apple elsewhere in the ad, but this clip certainly didn't.

    Of course, they failed to mention that the jury ordered them to pay over $1,000,000,000 for their blatant copying.




    It's not stupid. And is it objective to say there is nothing good enough about their phone?


     


    Here's why it's not stupid and is in fact clever - The ad is not targeting heavily Apple-biased folks like you. There are people who will never buy Apple. There are people who are not sure. So when the second group sees the Samsung ad and talks to the first group, how do you think they will react?

    First rule of sales, don't knock the competition because it comes over as a cheap and makes your products look inferior, which by the way they are lol





    Then don't buy the iPhone, or a Mac, or iPad - chock full of Samsung goodies. You're screwed. LOL!


     


    And to expand your ignorance about Samsung to the whole nation of South Korea, what does that say about you?

    I accept that there are people who would never buy Apple products.

    Now, please explain how this ad would make them want to buy Samsung's products.

    Oh, and btw, I never said there was nothing good about Samsung's phones. I said that the fact that they don't even mention the phone in the ad suggests that THEY think so.

    Samsung is responsible for 20% of South Korea's economy.

    Quit crying. It's not aimed at Apple.

    Whatever this ad is about, I doubt 90% of consumers are going to "get it".

Superbowl ads are very expensive, what a waste of money.


    This isn't their Superbowl ad. It's just an on-line teaser to promote the 2-minute long one that will air during the game. If you're going to spend that kind of big money they'd be foolish not to do a bit of relatively inexpensive promotion ahead of time.

    I fail to see how this relate to Apple in anyway... So it is me or AI who has cognitive troubles?

    It's funny. How funny? A billion dollars funny.

    I actually like this. Unlike the other ads, they don't mock people. Also I don't think it's attacking apple.

    Even though Milli Vanilli was guilty of perpetrating a musical fraud, I do believe that they were more original than Samsung is when it comes to their phones and tablets.


     


    And speaking of the super bowl, not that I really care, but I wonder if Beyonce is going to lip sync again, like she did during the inauguration? That is a pretty lame thing to do.
