This LG Optimus G Pro Commercial Looks Eerily Familiar, Shows Off Panorama VR Feature


Showing off some of the sweet camera software in their new Optimus G Pro smartphone, LG posted up this video to their official YouTube account. It gives us a look at the Panorama VR software, most likely based off of Google’s Photo Sphere, and the G Pro’s ability to take some good looking panorama shots. Only there is just one small thing… 

Since we don’t speak Korean, we will have to assume that LG’s video is intentionally copying Apple, but then outdoing them with the Panorama VR aspect. Well played, LG. I think.

    At first, I was like,”what a shame, they blatantly ripping off an Apple commercial.” Then I was like, “I get now. That’s funny. I wish I could understand what they are saying.”

    Oh now the commercial war starts between both of them. See http://www.91mobiles.com/lg-optimus-g-pro-price-in-india for further details…

    I can see the Evil Money Hungry Apple Lawyers, standing in a circle, laughing and licking their chops at this very moment.

  • LG fail…

    Now thats how you make a Ad. Way to go LG. This could be the year of LG, they stopped making crap and now if they can air these ads in the rest of the world, they have a winner on their hands with the G. I love how they one upped Apple


  • Larizard

    Google should have done this for the Nexus 4….

    • A little risky in the states. You might be able to get a judge to realize its parody but most of our judges are idiots so you never really know how it would turn out.

  • JBartcaps

    HAHAHAHA Finally someone is actually making fun of Apple for their outdated features

    • Brian Wolfman

      Exactly…finally someone saying, yes, everyone can take a panarama, but can you do this? And as for the caps? Caps fan in NJ here. Can we have a even strength goal maybe?

    Talk about blatant robbery. I wouldn’t mind if Apple sued this time.

  • Jroc869, Nexus-Life

      Apple: “Bitterman, alert the lawyers to start the paperwork…we have some money to collect!”

    This commercial seems like it is trying to mock Apple. Yes the first part of the commercial they completely rip off Apple, right down to hanging the picture on the wall. But then they showed off the other feature which obviously trumps Apple’s feature. I think they’re just trying to compare which image you would want on your wall.

      I think you’re reading too much into it

      • Actually he is reading the right amount into it. Basically the commercials says, “We can do the exact same thing, and more.”

    Really ???

      Sooo, ICS had panorama, which was in the play store in some versions of apps, Then Apple steals panorama in same basic package after Android uses it in stock os, Then LG says that’s not panorama, THIS is panorama, completely blowing up Panorama to an enormous scale, just shows that apple has given up on innovation

    LOL shamelessly stolen. Love it.

    • duke69111

      Perfect. Stolen and bested all in the same commercial.

      Good artists copy, great artists steal. Thank god we have a android company who isn’t continually making fun of their competitors. Although Samsung is doing a bit better lately.

  • SexciiP

    It looks like a cross between Samsung, and Apple O.o

    …all my photo spheres don’t line up properly… I call shenanigans.
