Samsung releases new iPhone-bashing ad, shows it hasn’t lost its marketing touch [Video]

A new Galaxy phone is out, so you know what that means… that’s right! The return of Samsung’s iPhone-bashing commercials.

This latest ad takes place in a graduation pool party where all the adults have “outdated” iPhones and all the hip kids have brand new Galaxy S4’s. All the new features of the Galaxy S4 are showcased here: from being able to answer your phone with a a wave of your hand to turning on the TV. The “misinformed” adults then go on to try the same things on their iPhones — which of course, does not work. See it all for yourself below:

I have to ask, how come none of the adults were cool enough to know that they “should have” bought a Galaxy S4? Talk about discrimination, Samsung. On a more serious note, it could be interesting to see if Apple ever responds to these ads, much like their Get a Mac ads of the past. Even if they don’t, however, it doesn’t look like Samsung is stopping anytime soon.

What do you think of Samsung’s latest ad for the Galaxy S4? Effective or just silly? Let us know in the comments!

    [@BR] plastics are better for reception and grip. it did not feel too cheap when i held GS4; oh well, if somebody is metal-freak (read:Al), it will be hard for him to be convinced.

    well, the message in the ad is not quite acceptable. adults can even be “informed”.

    “I have to ask, how come none of the adults were cool enough to know that they “should have” bought a Galaxy S4? Talk about discrimination…”

    If you are a fruity fanboi, you are waiting to pay $500 for the next iteration from them, not pay half that for something else. My daughter-in-law got the latest iPhone a month ago and now is angry at the Galaxy S5 is “cooler” than her purchase. When I told her about the price, she was even more upset. All I can say is shame about the crappy plastic case Sammy still insist on using. Oh well.

    I like it. Made my wife (she has a fruit phone 4 something or other) laugh nervously. I am up for a Galaxy S4, once I get some spare money … in a few weeks perhaps. Be a nice upgrade from my (now very old) HTC Inspire…
