New Samsung Ads Poke Fun at Apple Live Stream Issues, iPhone 6 and Apple Watch

Capitalizing on Apple's much-talked about and publicized special event yesterday, Samsung has released a series of new web ads (via Engadget) poking fun at the live stream's struggles, the iPhone 6 getting a screen size upgrade, the Apple Watch and more. All six ads can be seen in the video playlist below.


All of the ads feature two actors dressed similar to Apple Geniuses in an environment that looks like the back area of an Apple Store. The first ad notes how the live stream for Apple's event intermittently cut out for some viewers while also experiencing odd production issues, like two songs playing over each other or a Chinese translator having her audio played over the keynote.

The second ad features the two eagerly anticipating "something groundbreaking" from the keynote until the larger-screened iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are unveiled, which has them excited until they compare it to large-screened Android phones. Another ad points out that the Samsung Gear S doesn't require a phone for all of its features, like the Apple Watch. The Samsung Gear S will launch alongside the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 this fall.

The rest of the ads continue Samsung's effort to differentiate its Galaxy devices from the new iPhones, pointing out its Fast Charging Mode, Multi Window multitasking and the Galaxy Note's S Pen stylus.

Samsung often releases ads capitalizing on moves Apple makes with its iPhone line, most famously releasing a series of ads of people waiting in line for the latest iPhone while enviously looking at Galaxy devices.

Damn. These people are quick... Maybe they should focus their effort towards making their hardware better rather than... This.

Then again, their crazy marketing seems to have worked so far. I like Android, but gosh I hate Samsung.

It's nothing but a circle jerk for the anti-Apple Android group.

I think they are jealous because not as many people watch their live streams so of course, they never have server issues. :rolleyes:

To be fair, Apple was streaming to like 500x more people than Samsung have ever streamed their keynotes to.

Samsung: Maybe you would make better commercials if you used more than one day.
