Jeremy Returns in Another Samsung Galaxy S4 Teaser, Drops Clues?


That’s right, the oddity that is “Jeremy” from last week’s Samsung Galaxy S4 teaser is back again this morning to star in yet another teaser. The spot carries along the theme from the first – a seemingly rich kid is pegged as the keeper of Samsung’s “next big thing” before it’s unveiling. Samsung has stored the device in an unlocked box labeled “Unpacked” and has told Jeremy that he can’t show anyone. So while the obnoxious little girl from down the street tries to get in our boy Jeremy’s head, he isn’t having any of it before his big day arrives, where he’ll wear his “power” tie. 

A couple of things stand out immediately to me. First, this is the most unsecure situation in the history of smartphone secrecy. We’re talking about trusting a 12-year old kid who has no security guards other than a driver named Benson, no lock on the box, and a mother that clearly pays little attention to her “little star.” The chick doesn’t even know that her son just went to a meeting with Samsung and returned home in a Rolls Royce with a magic glowing box. And why is Jeremy hiding the box from his own mother and not from the obnoxious girl from down the street? OK, enough there.

Did Samsung drop any clues? Well, after the mother drops off some Oreos on Jeremy’s desk, he does mention that “it’s my favorite color.” Black and white, anyone? There are also a number of black, white, red, and blue stripes plastered across his room, all of which look similar to past Galaxy colors. Towards the end, his mother also mentions that his “power” tie has been set aside for his “big” day. Clearly we think the phone will be powerful and big.

More teasers are on the way.

    I don’t know one kid who’s favorite color is Black and white. Most kids prefer colors like purple, orange, red, and blue

  • dannyWHITE

    YES! I always wanted a Oreo colored Galaxy!!!

  • Dain Laguna

    regardless of what demographic they are pandering to, someone at samsung loves cheese…because it gets laid thicker and thicker on these unpacked commericals.

  • Rodeojones000

    As I’m sure it’ll have a physical home button I’m not even a little interested. I’d still rather have my Galaxy Nexus.

    • Jeb

      Shut up about the home button. We get it, you don’t like them.

      • Rodeojones000

        Didn’t realize I needed to run potential comments by you first. Forgive me for not getting your approval prior to my post.

        You have your opinion, I have mine. The beauty of this site is we’re free to express said opinions as often as we want so long as we do so in a manner deemed acceptable by the moderators. Consider this post a “no” in response to you telling me to shut up.

  • C-Law

    “It’s my favorite Cullen!” What?!?

  • Futbolrunner

    How awesome would it be if they did a Home Alone remake instead, with a Macaulay Culkin like kid fending off the “Wet Bandits” from breaking in and stealing the GS4?

  • OreoMan

    Look at my screen name. How come I didn’t get an early release?

  • blah

    The clues are easy to get. First, the phone will come with a Butler named Benson, spelled backwards is Nosneb – mix those letters up and you get (Clone of Siri)

    Also the oreos are black and white.. Hence two colors.

  • Sean Wood

    So it was all Jane’s fault, that pushy little tramp.
    That’s why Jeremy was at home drawing pictures of mountain tops,
    with him on top, lemon yellow sun. His arms raised in a V, and dead lay in pools of maroon below…..

    Big day indeed Jeremy… Big day indeed…

    • Bigwavedave25

      Ha! Nice

  • interpol

    Shut up and take my money already.

  • Octotron

    I think some of you do not realize that this phone and the SGS3 are not specifically marketed to the tech whore geeks that troll this website like myself. They want soccer mom’s and every other demographic of people to buy it too, much like the SGS3.

    This means that you may hate the commercial, but Samsung already knows that you don’t care about the commercial in the first place. All they have to do is deliver a sweet phone and you will eat it up. This kind of stuff makes a bit of anticipation for those who aren’t quite so technically inclined or obsessed. 🙂

    • possomcrast

      I get that sense about Samsung’s marketing; ALWAYS about the family and regular people uses.

      • Pedro

        You mean people don’t live inside 4 concrete walls in the desert?


        • Fattie McDoogles

          Lies!!! Everyone lives like that!

    • MichaelFranz

      Preach on!!

    • Geoff

      But this teaser isn’t for the public release of the phone. This is for a geeky event. I have only seen these posted on tech websites, not tv. Soccer moms don’t care about an unpacked event.

      • Mustang5Oh

        Well played good sir!

    • Akashshr

      The fact that Samsung has ‘apparently’ thought of that, is Really annoying!
      Burn samsung……….Please!

  • triangle8

    They should have just given you the box, Kellen.

    • Give me the box!

      • blah

        whats in the box?? NOTHING! absolutely NOTHING!

        • AgryTurd

          What’s in the box?! What’s in the box?!

          Your wife’s head.

          • CasperTFG

            Precious!, Precious!…..oops sorry wrong movie.

        • JetRanger

          I hope they show us whats in the box soon because its looks to be EXACTLY the same as what was in Marcellus Wallace’s briefcase.

  • jzwerlz43

    “thank god spongebob didnt pull the secret string that reveals the secret compartment of my secret box which revelas embaressing photos of spongebob at the chirstmas party!!!!”-patrick star. sorry had to make this reference

  • Is it just me, or does it seem like Samsung is calling its customers children?

    • Sirx

      Worked for Apple–First get them on your side, then ever so gradually have your marketing team start insinuating that those customers are…kinda stupid, really. They require simple backgrounds, childish music, and simplistic, repetitive instructions, like a pack of snoveling 5-year olds.

      • Funny…

      • Jason James

        the fact the apple still shows off the camera in their commercials is proof of that or that the *pad can be used as a piano none of which show the value of their product

  • duke

    this is the dumbest “viral” campaign. quite silly for such a big announcement. GS3 is one of THE biggest phones ever. It’s successor shouldn’t be treated like a Gingerbread era phone commercial.

  • Thomas

    Really… what is the point of these videos ?

    • possomcrast

      To build hype in a “cute” way.

    • Diablo81588

      I agree. These won’t air on television, so the people that actually watch these teaser videos won’t care about a little boy eating Oreos.

  • possomcrast

    I think “It’s my favorite color!” hints that it will be in more than two colors, that it will be in our favorite color.

    • C-Law

      But he’s wearing black and white and grey and eating Oreos so probably just one or two of those colors is my guess

  • Kane Stapler

    If it looks just like the GS3 isn’t it going to be a bit anticlimactic when he unboxes what appears to be the same phone?

    • Liderc

      lol, exactly what I’m thinking. Bigger screen same phone, seems kind of pointless to make a big deal out of it. I know that’s what they have to do to advertise it, but seems kind of odd.

    • But then there’s no guarantee that is the actual Galaxy S4. Samsung released a bunch of test mules for the S3 to keep it’s final design secret, no reason they wouldn’t do the same again.

  • Bionic_Pags

    This kid sucks. Bring on 3/14 already.

    • jzwerlz43

      agreed! no more waiting

    • michael arazan

      What’s with the kid for these commercials, is Samsung trying to get the catholic priest demographic interested? The same way they market bikini women in the shower for the LG phone.
