After teasing their Super Bowl XLVII commercial earlier in the week, Samsung has gone ahead and posted up the full 2-minute spot ahead of today’s big game. As expected, it features Paul Rudd and Seth Rogen as the “next big thing,” a slogan Samsung has used for some time to describe its Galaxy line.
The spot is decent. It’s two minutes long, features a cameo by LeBron James, includes a couple of chuckle-worthy moments, and is directed by Jon Favreau.
Samsung released the teaser for their Super Bowl commercial this morning, a spot that stars Paul Rudd and Seth Rogen attempting to dance around using the words “Super Bowl” together. When the final 2-minute spot appears later this week and on Sunday, it will feature the “next big thing,” which means the entire current suite of Galaxy products (Note 2, S3 and Note 10.1). There will also be an extended cut at some point with “never-before-seen” footage.
You know a company is doing well when it can put out a teaser for a 2-minute Super Bowl ad that features two of comedy’s stars.
Remember the pink DROID RAZR M that we told you about yesterday? It’s now available! If you can withstand the 4-block long lines that are likely forming for this limited edition Valentine’s Day-inspired device, then you’ll be pleased to learn that it’ll only cost $50 on contract once you get to the front. Remember that it’s limited, which usually means collector’s item. Must have! Can’t live without! OK, I’ll stop now.
You can see the pink wonder in action below in Big Red’s newest commercial. Of course a woman is holding the phone. Sexist. (more…)
Today is a day for pomp and circumstance, so let’s take the time to remember past Presidents of these great United States. For example, Martin Van Buren. Don’t remember him? No one really does, except for his awesome sideburns. Google Search does though and shows off Google’s Knowledge Graph in this short, but cute commercial.
To show off the business-readiness (SAFE) of the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2, Samsung has released a new TV spot that features a fictional mobile gaming company whose employees are stuck in a world of Blackberries as business phones. Well, Blackberries as business phones and iPhones as their “home” phones. As one would expect, Samsung highlights the powerful business sharing tools, levels of encryption, and multi-tasking abilities of their current lineup, while also taking jabs at the guy in the sportcoat who thinks a Blackberry means “business.”
Oh, the game they are creating is called “Unicorn Apocalypse.” Who doesn’t love unicorns? (more…)
When this Nexus 7 “Aquarium” commercial was first posted by Google, it was pulled or set to private before most of us had a chance to watch it. Most assumed the pulling had to do with timing since Hurricane Sandy had hit the east coast and the image of an aquarium and people under water on the top of a New York City building was probably in poor taste.
But now that it’s 2013, the commercial is back! It’s also reminding you that there is a T-Mobile version of the tablet as well.
According to this latest Samsung Galaxy Note 2 ad, the oversized phone is great for multi-tasking while you work on quarterly earnings reports. It’s also an amazing way for co-workers to slack off and then take credit for hard work you just put in. Thankfully, those slackers never win, at least not in this fantasy world.
Verizon and HTC continue to upgrade “yourself” in this latest commercial for the DROID DNA. In it, they decide to finally touch on the phone’s most important selling feature, the 1080p display, something they failed to do in the opening spot.
Can someone explain to me how a man sitting in a futuristic laboratory chair with a phone plugged into his chest would make anyone want to buy said phone?
