These Motorola “Moto Dojo” Commercials are Actually Pretty Funny

I honestly don’t even know which phones Motorola is trying to promote with these new “Moto Dojo” commercials – probably the Moto X Pure and Moto G – but they are at least entertaining, something that I don’t think most of us would say about LG’s Statham-filled G5 commercials. And hey, they also don’t star Ashton Kutcher, so there’s that too.

The spots star some random, un-athletic and uncoordinated white dude with a taped on mustache who takes his karate seriously. Each commercial features this guy doing things to a Motorola phone that highlights a specific feature (Moto Display, Actions, Voice, etc.), only in a really awkward dojo setting, with cat pictures on the wood-paneled wall.

Who doesn’t love a good karate spoof?  (more…)

Look at This Silly Ass LG G5 Commercial

This bad LG G5 commercial is bad.

Why is this guy on the subway or bus with his battery out? Is that a new thing we are all going to start doing, just popping out batteries to make clicking noises that no one else can make? God no! Who wants to ever pull their battery out just because? That shit is no fun at all. Ever. It takes at least 2-3 minutes to boot up any Android phone to fully working status. You gotta let Android fully load everything in the background, which probably means optimizing 188 apps for 10 minutes at the boot screen, then LG’s garbage skin and your data connection, before finding the app you want in an app-drawer-less iOS-like, completely inefficient jukebox layout, which will then let that stream of House of Cards continue. It sure as hell isn’t instant, as this video suggests. Hot swap…gtfo, LG.  (more…)

Whaaaaaaat: Lil Wayne is Pouring Champagne All Over his Galaxy S7, and Delivering Baby Elephants in VR

Hopefully, you enjoy Lil Wayne and champagne, because both are about to be all over your commercial breaks as the stars of Samsung’s new line of Galaxy S7 commercials. We first saw Wayne in Samsung’s Oscar commercials alongside a bunch of other celebs, but he seems to have emerged as the lead in the S7 and S7 Edge campaign.

The commercials aren’t bad. Lil Wayne can be a funny dude, especially when he’s mocking his own lifestyle and his friends and the thought of wasting really expensive champagne to show that his phone is water resistant. Will these help Samsung sell lots of phones? They might. I don’t know.


UPDATE: Weird, Samsung made two of the champagne videos private. (more…)

T-Mobile’s Super Bowl Ad Suggests Other Carriers Would Ruin Drake’s Hotline Bling

This is T-Mobile’s Super Bowl ad, starring Aubrey Drake Graham. It suggests that the other carriers of the world would try to ruin the dancing magic that is Hotline Bling, because other “wireless carriers ruin everything.” Yeah, so, it’s actually not a very good commercial.

Hey, grumpy Kellen is back today! Hi, everyone!
