This new Android commercial is fun. That is all.
Be together, not the same.
With the phone official, LG is getting ready to ramp up promotional tactics for its newly unveiled flagship, G4. To kick off the campaign, they went ahead and released the first four TV commercials that you will likely see in the US and other places around the globe. Each focuses on what LG has deemed are the phones major selling points: the 16MP f/1.8 camera, Quantum IPS display, and leather backing.
The commercials come in both 15-second and 30-second spots, but to give you the best presentation, we embedded all of the 30-second spots below.
Tell us what you think – are these the types of ads that are going to help the G4 cut into Samsung so-far-so-good Galaxy S6 numbers? (more…)
To say that Samsung’s promotional videos for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge have been “wild” is probably a bit of an understatement. From unboxings that lead into parkour outings or helicopter escapes from the bad guys, Samsung is kind of all over the place. That’s not to say that these commercials are bad, they are just different. Different is usually OK, right? Anything but a ticking digital crown set to a drum beat. Please.
Anyways, here are a bunch of semi-funny, kind of awkward, “What Comes Next?” commercials from Samsung that give the phone a voice, turn it into some sort of real object, and then let it talk in the 3rd person to describe itself. (more…)
I don’t know that I’ve ever had that tingling sensation in my toes before opening up a new phone, like I may have before jumping off a cliff, but I guess it’s possible. And not that I’ve jumped off a cliff before, but imagining it already has my little toesies feeling funny.
I can’t count the number of times over the last few weeks that random emails popped into our inbox telling us that our new commercials, especially the one with the animals, are amazing. After the Super Bowl, we heard a dozen times, “This should have been played during the game! It would have been the best commercial!” Of course, these Android “be together. not the same.” commercials are not ours, they are Google’s. But one thing is clear – people absolutely love ’em.
In the most recent two, Google goes in two directions – one to show different people, young and old, coming together to enjoy life. The other, well, it’s all about that Androidify selfie dunk. Come on, tell me you haven’t wanted to selfie dunk? (more…)
Nothing like a little Pete Rock to help start your weekend.
