  • Samsung Subtly Jabs at Apple Lawsuits in Super Bowl Ad


    With Super Bowl XLVII on tap for this weekend, that means there's not only a barrage of football on the way, there's also a litany of must-see commercials that will beam into our living rooms everywhere on Sunday, leaving us all chatting about them on Monday.

    One of the early 2013 standouts of this annual premium commercial showcase is Samsung, which is already logging hundreds of thousands of views (1.7 million in total) with a new Super Bowl teaser ad that, among other things, teases the legal battles between the company and tech rival Apple.

    The teaser pointS out the highly litigious environment of today's business world. This argument is illustrated beautifully through the interplay by actors Seth Rogen, Bob Odenkirk and Paul Rudd, who are trying to come up with an idea for their Super Bowl ad, but hilariously can’t say any of the actual words associated with the Super Bow.

    For example, instead of saying the "Super Bowl" with the 49ers and the Ravens, they end up calling the game “the big plate” featuring the San Francisco “50 minus one-es” and the Baltimore “black birds.”

    The three never mention Apple, Samsung, rounded corners or anything like that, but it’s fairly clear what they’re talking about here. Samsung and Apple are still locked in a multi-national copyright war, and its easy to interpret Apple as the unnamed sue happy other in the spot.
    If you haven't already, check out the spot below.

      Apple is constantly suing a company instead of trying to work with a company

      What if Apple actually teamed up with Samsung and made an Amazing phone?
      Apple have more money than sense. They have so much money and arn't smart enough to put that money into a better phone that everyone would want. Instead they sue everyone for the smallest things.
      If they did what Samsung do and listen to its customers then everyone would have an iPhone but no, everyone is getting Samsung Galaxy S3s and why? because Samsung listen to what the people want and they deliver. Apple sue, Samsung listen.

      Lol at the fact that Apple "have so much money and arn't smart enough to put that money into a better phone that everyone would want" and are not like Samsung "because Samsung listen to what the people want and they deliver. Apple sue, Samsung listen." Yet some how Apple remains one of the highest if not the highest company in terms of customer loyalty. To dumb it down to words you might actually be able to understand if what you are saying is correct then iPhone users hate the fact that "Apple sue" and the fact that they "do [not] listen to [their] customers" yet some how despite all of this supposed hatred boiling up in side they keep coming back for more. Why is that then? I rest my case.

      Seth and Paul are usually pretty funny....it's too bad, this wasn't their best. Definitely could have been better. I bet both really use iPhone's in real life....Samsung just paid them a butt-load of money to promote their product.

      I guess they can't just show their product as they know it doesn't compare well. They have to stoop and make fun of CONSUMERS. dumb @$/'s.
      I'll make fun of people like you too

      It's a social thing not their phone. Kinda like Jordan's in the hip hop culture. Everyone wants Jordan's because of the brand and nothing else. Just wait a few more years and Apple will die unless they change their strategy. Hopefully they will make some changes to IOS

      As an Apple fan I do actually agree with you there. I choose to use an iPhone as that is the phone I prefer and enjoy using the most but for many people your right it is just a "social thing" and nothing more. It's somewhat bragging rights if you like for some people sort of "I've got an iPhone and you don't" to dumb it down to its simplest terms. In regards to iOS itself It is pretty simple compared to other (I say other but I'm pretty sure you know what I'm talking about) operating systems and would welcome changes. The controlling thing that others mention isn't that much of a problem for me though.
